We’re very proud to announce that we’re now ISO 27001 certified, making Planday one of the only platforms in our field to meet the highest internationally recognized security standard.
What is ISO 27001?
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), is an independent, international organization that sets the global standards for security and safety. In short, ISO consults experts all over the world to create standards that define what excellence looks like.
ISO 27001 is a part of the ISO 27000 family of standards, which are all related to information security. ISO 27001 requires a company to have an information security management system, which means having a documented process for managing sensitive company information, HR processes, and IT systems.
What does being ISO 27001 certified mean?
Well, in short, that means Planday has a world-class information security management system in place! We’ve made improvements to our IT structure, office security, training, risk assessment, and much more. We then went through the rigorous audit and certification process with the British Assessment Bureau— an ISO certification body.
