Pole To Win Achieves ISO 27001 Certification
Pole To Win (PTW) has been awarded ISO 27001:2013 certification at its delivery centers in Bangalore, India; Baltimore, USA; Bucharest, Romania; Seattle, USA; Glasgow, UK; and at audio production subsidiary SIDE’s studio in Los Angeles, USA. All remaining PTW and SIDE studios worldwide are currently undergoing preparations for ISO 27001:2013 certification, with the goal of the company being to achieve full global certification by year-end 2018.
ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is an independent standard-setting body promoting worldwide proprietary, industrial and commercial standards to ensure products and services are safe, reliable and of the highest quality. ISO 27001 is an information security standard which is part of the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards. It sets criteria for the secure management of security risks and requires that a comprehensive suite of information security controls is in place. PTW’s Information Security Management System complies with the requirements of ISO 27001:2013 for the protection of client confidential, proprietary and personal data/information for the provision of services related to Quality Assurance, Quality Engineering, Customer Experience, Localization and Audio Production.
PTW underwent detailed assessments by a third-party auditor in each of the site locations to ensure compliance with the requirements before the issuing of the certification in May 2018. Regular reviews will be conducted as part of ongoing certification to confirm PTW remains compliant with the standard.
“This certification reflects the focus and vital importance that our organization has always placed on information security and confidentiality,” said Jim Titchen, PTW’s Vice President of Technology and Information Security. “We’re proud to be internationally recognized as a leader in information security protocols and best practices. Our clients can be even more secure in the knowledge that we have the necessary safeguards in place for working with their data and intellectual property using information management security and controls that have been independently and expertly deemed to be of the highest standards.”
PTW is fully committed to best practices of robust information and data security measures. In addition to all other delivery centers achieving ISO 27001:2013 certification in 2018, the company has also completed its preparations for compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into place on May 25, 2018.
