Extending ISO 27001 accreditation throughout its entire U.S. business, Bond demonstrates its commitment to Information Security Compliance worldwide
Bond International Software Inc., the global provider of recruiting and staffing software and services, has been accredited with the internationally recognized Information Security standard – ISO 27001. This endorsement recognizes Bond’s on-going commitment to best-in-class services and a policy of guaranteed security for all of its U.S. hosting services.
The international standard is only given to companies that fulfil and maintain specific best practice requirements for their Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) and associated processes. The IT systems and processes are subject to an extensive auditing process, after which they are awarded certification provided they have met the stipulated standards. The new accreditation will now apply to Bond’s entire range of staffing software hosting services in the U.S., ensuring that any sensitive client information that Bond handles is now certified as being fully secure.
Les Jones, Lead Auditor and Director of IQS UK, who oversaw the auditing process, comments, “After a detailed and thorough review of Bond’s U.S. staffing software hosting environment, along with its organization-wide procedures and policies for information security, I was pleased to conclude that Bond’s U.S. information security readily met the standards and quality to achieve full certification of ISO 27001. The company was able to easily demonstrate that the necessary systems and procedures were in place to minimize security risks. These included high levels of secure integration between internal departments and external bodies, securing physical business premises and access to computer systems and also suitable protection of sensitive data and documents.”
Steve Taylor, CEO, Bond International Software (US), adds, “Staffing firms, especially those with government sector activities, often stipulate that their suppliers must hold a formal information security certification, typically the ISO 27001 certification. Having achieved this certification in the U.S., we are now equipped to guarantee the levels of data security required by our clients and we look forward to the additional opportunities such an award will afford us on a global scale.”
