International SOS Awarded ISO Certification for Best Practice in Information Security Management.

Ramesh Munamarty, Group Chief Information Officer added, “Safeguarding our customer and partner data is a top priority and attaining the ISO/IEC 27001 certification is one of the key milestones in our security framework. The certification attests that the International SOS Information Security Policy, Standards, and Procedures align with ISO/IEC 27002:2013 Information technology — Security techniques — Code of practice for information security controls. We are continually investing in our technology to innovate and provide the best services for our customers, and this ISO certification is a testament to our focus on developing the technology on a strong security foundation.
ISO/IEC 27001 is the most widely recognised international standard for information security. The standard, awarded by the BSI (British Standards Institute) is an excellent framework for an organisation that requires information asset protection. Achieving this certification provides an assurance that internationally recognised information security controls are applied to protect information assets.
International SOS has achieved compliance to a number of ISO standards as part of its continuous quality improvement programme. This includes global certification across all International SOS business lines to ISO 9001:2008 for its integrated Quality Management System in Assistance Centre’s, International SOS Clinics and Medical Services. International SOS’ Assistance Centre in London was the first service platform in the world to be certified in the delivery of telehealth services (ISO/TS 13131:2014 ED1).
