As an HR Company in India, our databases often hold vast amounts of sensitive information that can fall prey to malware attacks.
At Husys Consulting Limited, the safety of our employee and client data is our top priority and for the past few years, we have constantly engaged in multiple endeavors, to enhance our security protocol.
All our tireless efforts have finally borne fruit and it gives all of us, at team Husys, immense pride to inform you that our information security management systems are now ISO/ IEC 27001: 2013 certified.
What is this ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 Certification and how does it help an HR company?
ISO/IEC 27001, originally published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electro-technical Commission (IEC) in 2005, in accordance with their directives, and finally revised in the year 2013.
The primary goal behind this standard is to establish guidelines for the implementation and maintenance of security standards within organizations. This is done by figuring out and predicting potential threats that could face the information systems of the organization to undertake an accurate risk assessment. Once the risk assessment is done, a systematic framework for prevention and risk mitigation is put in place.
In today’s world, where a massive proportion of HR processes are moving to cloud-based
information system platforms, enhancing the overall work efficiency, the looming threat of data breaches through malicious software has also grown.
Most job applications happen online, giving human resources (HR) offices humongous volumes of personal data that can be vulnerable to hacking. Several other crucial processes, such as employment contracts, training management, and workforce analytics are also increasingly being handled online. This coupled with more routine activities such as sending and receiving emails in the ordinary course of business can also make organizations more susceptible to data breaches that don’t just put client and employee information at risk, but can prove to be fairly expensive for the HR firm as well, making data security crucial for the smooth functioning of any organization.
Identifying risks and treating them is at the core of ISO/IEC 27001: 2013, therefore, compliance with them shows the organization’s intent to protect its databases and in effect, its clients from cyber threats.
