On the heels of a successful audit of its Noggin 2.0 platform under the Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP), the integrated safety and security management technology provider passes another stringent security audit, designed to protect the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of information.
Noggin today announced achieving ISO/IEC (International Organization for Standardization and International Electrotechnical Commission) 27001 certification, after the successful completion of a multi-phased audit of its policies, procedures, technical and physical controls, designed to protect the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of information.
ISO 27001, an international standard, recognised globally as a benchmark of good security practice, provides requirements for an information security management system (ISMS), which enables organisations to manage the security of assets, such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details, or information entrusted by third parties.
In achieving the latest security qualification, Noggin worked closely with an ISO-accredited certification body to pass a multi-stage assessment program, based on a risk assessment model. The independent and accredited assessor reviewed Noggin’s information security systems, with a major focus placed on the documentation of Noggin’s risk assessment processes for information security-related risks and treatments.
Noggin CISO/CTO, Owen Prime said: “Organisations need software-as-a-service products now more than ever. But they need those solutions to come with the highest levels of protection to mitigate the stark information security risks out there. We’re proud that this certification reaffirms and formalises our commitment to security best practices, signalling to our customers that we have a fully managed turnkey solution that they can rapidly deploy in compliance with their own stringent standards.”
“We are pleased to have another proof of our security credentials – this time via an internationally-recognised certification – bestowed upon us by a neutral third party,” said Noggin CEO, James Boddam-Whetham. “In this COVID-19 moment of uncertainty and increased security incidents, data security is just one more thing keeping IT and the C-suite up at night. And so, we see our security bona fides as a means of giving customers of our Noggin integrated safety and security software platform, which has been used extensively by federal and state government public safety response agencies, healthcare organisations, and by corporate clients on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response, further evidence of the seriousness in which we take threats to their information’s availability, integrity, and confidentiality.”
The news follows closely on the heels of the announcement that Noggin is ready to handle IRAP-Protected classification in national incident and case management response to critical events.
Noggin’s IRAP assessment, the first in its class, meant that the company’s leading incident, risk and case management platform, Noggin 2.0, can be used by Australian state and federal agencies to manage information classified up to Protected, in alignment with the Australian Government Secure Cloud Strategy.
