London, UK: Reinforcing its commitment to information security, XConnect is delighted to announce that, following an external audit, it has re-attained ISO27001:2013 certification.
XConnect continues to be committed to making security part of its everyday working practices and this certification is just one of the ways we ensure it, on top of our commitment to the MEF Trust in Enterprise Messaging Code of Conduct and our membership to the GSMA Fraud and Security Group. This ISO 27001:2013 certification of compliance is formally certified by independent auditors accredited by the ANAB Management Systems Certification Body, the largest accreditation body in North America and serving more than 75 countries.
This certification provides enhanced trust throughout the supply chain and is critical when partnering with Mobile Network Operators, Carrier and Messaging providers to manage sensitive network and subscriber information, especially for information subject to new data protection regulations, such as General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). As XConnect expands its fraud, risk and advanced routing services to its global telecoms and identity customers, it is increasingly managing sensitive data with additional privacy and security requirements.
ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised standard for information security to protect against internal and external threats.
XConnect’s CEO and Founder, Eli Katz, stated “XConnect is committed to working with the industry to improve trust and security and we’ve worked hard right across the business to ensure we’ve followed the procedures and processes within the ISO27001 guidance. This reaccreditation demonstrates that the team’s hard work has paid off and gives our partners, customers and suppliers the confidence they need.”
