Ensuring information security with effective risk assessment and best practices is the be-all and end-all for data-driven organizations. Today, with an increasingly complex threat landscape and a sharp rise in data breaches, robust and effective information technology security is more important than ever and a fundamental requirement for tax professionals to ensure the integrity and security of systems and sensitive information.
At Blue dot, we hold ourselves to the highest standards. We pride ourselves on maintaining the highest level of data integrity and security – we won’t leave a stone unturned when it comes to protecting our customers’ data. That’s why receiving our ISO 27001:2013 certificate is so important. ISO 27001 is the de facto international standard for Information Security Management.
What does achieving an ISO 27001 certification mean?
At Blue dot, we talk the talk and walk the walk. We back up our words and mission statement with a certified commitment to a stringent level of information security, complying with a globally accepted and recognized standard. Compliance with ISO 27001 means that Blue dot is continuously implementing industry best practices, assessed by an external body to ensure we have the organizational and technological tools in place to protect all the data and systems that we handle.
The structure of ISO certification means that our information security management system covers every facet of security and regulations within an established framework that determines data protection requirements. Incorporating and adopting the necessary processes to ensure constant risk assessment and management against cyberattacks and data breaches requires commitment. Certification means that Blue dot takes its responsibility and information security seriously. We’ve demonstrated security effectiveness, taking the necessary steps to implement top-notch controls, policies and procedures that meet all the international standards for the tax compliance services we provide.
