vFairs is Now ISO 27001 Certified; Here’s What It Means

vFairs was recently awarded with the ISO 27001 certification, which is the highest internationally accepted standard for software security. vFairs underwent a comprehensive audit process with DAS Certification, UK, a global ISO certification body.

vFairs is now one of the very few organizations in the events industry space to have this certification. But what is ISO and what does this certification mean for us and you, our customers? This blog will explain the details of the ISO 27001 certification for vFairs.

What is ISO?

ISO stands for the International Organization for Standardization. It is an independent and well-reputed organization responsible for setting various quality standards. Striving for and receiving ISO certifications are a voluntary process for all organizations across the world.

The certification body sets global standards after consulting subject matter experts from around the world. It means that once a standard is set, it is what defines excellence in any particular field.

What is the ISO 27001 Certification? 

The ISO 27001 certification is a major part of the ISO 27000 family of standards and is related to information security standardization. For any company to have an ISO 27001 certification, they need to have:

  • Strict on-ground rules for information and data security.
  • An information security management system.
  • Having documented SOPs for managing sensitive company and client information.
  • Streamlined and secure HR and IT processes.

So, the ISO 27001 certification ensures a multi-faceted approach to safeguarding information and data security. You will need to execute proper plans for all your IT, HR, and general operations procedures and make sure they comply with the standard. The certification is only awarded to a select few organizations that come through the audit process.
