Progression obtains ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 certification

We’ve been working on this for a while now and we can finally announce it: Progression’s information security management system (ISMS) complies with the ISO 27001 standard!

This certification is a seal of trust that at Progression, we take information security very seriously.

“Security is a team affair. The saying goes that we are only as strong as our weakest link. All employees must be made aware of the importance of information security in order to limit risks. It therefore implies changes in habits, monthly training, procedures. I am happy to say that my colleagues have all boarded the ISO boat. We all rowed in the same direction. Their collaboration has really facilitated the improvement of our security practices. »

What is ISO/IEC 27001:2013?

It is an international standard issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). This standard is widely recognized in the field of information security and provides a solid framework for setting up, maintaining and improving an information security management system (ISMS).

In other words, this standard establishes strict requirements so that companies that comply with it, like us, aim to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information they hold.

This standard covers all aspects of information security, such as:

  • Physical security
  • Staff safety
  • Access management
  • Communication security
  • Security incident management
  • Business continuity

By obtaining this certification, we have demonstrated our ability to manage and protect the information we hold.

Rest assured that Progression will continue to invest in the security of its operations and improve its practices to maintain this level of excellence.

Moreover, a web page dedicated to the description of the security of our operations is under development.
