EtQ’s Development Center Receives ISO 27001 Certification

FARMINGDALE, NY (02-21-12): EtQ is pleased to announce that its Development Center has received ISO 27001 certification. EtQ’s Development Center was certified by the Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS), which is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

ISO 27001 specifies the requirements of a management system for managing an organization’s information security risks.

EtQ underwent an extensive audit conducted by SGS in order to become ISO 27001 certified. The ISO 27001 standard requires EtQ to:

  • Evaluate information security risks, taking into account the impact of company vulnerabilities, threats, and impacts
  • Design and implement a comprehensive suite of information security controls or other forms of risk treatment to address risks that are considered unacceptable
  • Adopt a comprehensive management process to ensure that information security controls meet information security needs on an ongoing basis

After conducting a full audit of the EtQ Development Center, the audit team concluded that EtQ has established and maintained its development and security processes in line with the requirements of the ISO 27001 standard.

“EtQ’s ISO 27001certification further emphasizes our commitment to our customers and in providing a secure and efficient IT environment for developing our software solutions,” stated Morgan Palmer, Chief Technology Officer at EtQ. “Undergoing the ISO 27001 audit demonstrates the presence of efficient information security and EtQ is pleased to have added ISO 27001 certification as an accomplishment.”
