Spherity achieves ISO 27001 information security standard certification

ISO/IEC 27001 is the most widely used information security standard prepared and published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards. It includes requirements on how to implement, monitor, maintain, and continually improve an Information Security Management System (ISMS) within the context of the organization and its business needs. Conformity with this internationally recognized standard lies at the core of Spherity, since we consider information management essential to all of Spherity’s business operations. These best practices ensure we will continue to protect the interests of our customers, investors and employees, providing the highest level of security assurance.

Information security is the practice of ensuring the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of information and data according to the “CIA principle,” and thereby defending information and data from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, perusal, inspection, recording or destruction. Additionally, this principle maintains business operations and protects business continuity while minimizing risks.

The certification was validated following an assessment done by the independent certification body, TÜV Rheinland. It covered the organization’s IT systems, cloud services, applications and all related assets, as well as all information and data stored and transacted. The scope also included the company’s office, located in Dortmund, Germany.

Spherity is certified according to ISO 27001 information security standard.

The certification is publicly available in the TÜV Rheinland Certificate Directory and also on the Spherity website. The organization’s ISO/IEC 27001 certification represents an important step forward on our journey to prove that we are committed to the highest standards of security and service.
