Reaching the highest level of security standards underscores the company’s commitment to data protection and customer trust

Validus Risk Management announced today that it has achieved the International Standard Organization (ISO) 27001 security certification. The scope of the certification includes Validus’s headquarters in Eton and the offices located in Paddington, London and Toronto, Canada.

ISO 27001 is one of the most widely recognized and internationally accepted information security standards. To obtain this certification, organisations must implement a rigorous security program including development of an Information Security Management System (ISMS), which defines a comprehensive, systematic approach to ensuring data security including stringent security controls.

 “This certification validates our long-term commitment to the protection of our customer data.”, said Michael Edwards, IT Manager at Validus. “We want to give customers, partners and prospects the extra reassurance of our security practices and that we take the protection of their physical and digital information seriously”.

With the successful ISO 27001 certification, Validus ensures that it has established methodologies and a framework for business, people, and IT processes to help identify, manage, and reduce risks to the security of information.
