SBP Romania becomes compliant with the ISO 27001 certification standard
Software Business Partners ( www.sbp-romania.com ), a software outsourcing company from Romania, and a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, becomes compliant with the ISO 27001 (Information Security Management System) certification standard, which acknowledges the fact that the Romanian outsourcing company succeeds to ensure a high degree of information security, while providing outsourcing services to its clients.
ISO 27001 is one of the standards defined by the International Organization for Standardization, which focuses on security management within a company - more precisely, how a company keeps under control its security procedures in order to ensure the security of their own data and of their customers' data. More details on the benefits of working with an ISO 27001 certified company can be found here.
By obtaining a certification standard that "provides a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an Information Security Management System" , SBP Romania proves that its outsourcing services are reliable and enjoy great security, and also that the company gets involved and actively participates in maintaining a security standard that prevents possible issues that might compromise the security of the customers' information.
In order to attain this certification, SBP had to demonstrate that it is compliant to all the requirements of ISO 27001, by making available to the certification body all the required documentation (the declared policy, security procedures, risk treatment plan, documents covering the risk assessment, Statement of Applicability), which proved that SBP Romania has implemented and identified the most appropriate tools and mechanisms for ensuring and controlling the security and confidentiality of the information inside and outside the company. Having an ISO 27001 certification also means that the outsourcing company will undergo periodic surveillance verifications from the certification body, in order to check that the security systems are updated and efficient.
The passion and talent that drive the SBP team, alongside their experience in working with different technologies and tools, allow the company to handle multiple projects in parallel and deliver reliable outsourcing services, both offshore and nearshore. Also, SBP Romania provides constant support and feedback, from the beginning of the project, ensuring a clear communication channel between the company and their customers.
Software outsourcing is a vast market extended all over the world, so in order to keep ahead of competition, the Romanian company based in Bucharest tries to constant improve its services by updating their tools and procedures, and by being compliant with the standards set by the authorities in the IT field.
