RefTech renews Information Security Management (ISO/IEC 27001:2017) certification

RefTech, the leading provider of event registration and badging systems has once again achieved certification to the globally recognized ISO/IEC standard in information security management. RefTech first achieved the standard in 2015 for a three year term. Following annual audits, RefTech has now been re-assessed and achieved the new upgraded 2017 certification.  

Simon Clayton, chief ideas officer, RefTech said: “Achieving this global standard is a great indication that a registration company has the technical and organizational security in place to be GDPR compliant. It is the only externally assessed certification in data security and it is only achieved as a result of a complex and demanding procedure. We believe that we are the only event registration and badging provider to achieve this standard in information security management throughout the company, not just on its servers.” 

ISO 27001 is the internationally recognized information security management standard that proves an organization’s commitment to the security of their customer, employee and shareholder’s information. With ISO 27001 in place, RefTech is able to minimize risks to potential data security breaches and decrease errors and costs, while demonstrating credibility and trust. 

The benefits of certification to ISO 27001 include:

  • Proving to clients an organization keeps their information safe;
  • Achieve operational excellence;
  • Minimize risk of potential data security breaches;
  • Protects reputation;
  • Decreases errors and costs;
  • Increases business profitability;
  • Engage employees.  

This independent assessment was conducted by the British Assessment Bureau, a leading certification body, and confirms that the data security policies and procedures that RefTech use to handle customer event data are robust and safe. RefTech first achieved this standard in 2015 and has conducted annual audits since then and this was their first re-assessment.
