Annik Extends ISO 27001:2005 Certification to Its Second Operations Facility
August 27, 2013 - Gurgaon, Haryana, India
This certification is given to companies who follow a defined process to implement information security in the best possible way within the organization. This is extremely important for any organization as it not only provides a holistic, risk-based approach to secure information and compliance but it also demonstrates credibility, trust, satisfaction and confidence with stakeholders, partners, and customers. The ISO27001 certification is based on the erstwhile BS7799 standard and is accepted globally as a benchmark to insure Data confidentiality, availability and Integrity.
After conducting a thorough compliance audit of standards such as Organization of Information Security, Information Security Incidence Management, Security Policy, Secure Access Control, Communications and Operations Management, Physical and Environmental Security, Intertek awarded the certification last month. In June 2012, Annik received CMMI Level 3 Certification after an audit by KPMG (on behalf of Software Engineering Institute) for the service lines across the company, making it the first company in India and fifth in the world to be certified on CMMI SVC + SSD model v1.3.
Commenting on this achievement, Annik Chief Operating Officer Sandeep Bhatia said "I am extremely pleased to add the ISO 27001:2005 certification to the second delivery location in Gurgaon this year. Certified in ISO27001 since 2006, this achievement demonstrates our continued emphasis on Data privacy, Quality and Process Excellence."
