WaveCom AS, the provider of data centre and cloud services, has been awarded the information security and availability certificate ISO 27001 in September 2019. In addition, the company renewed its quality management certificate ISO 9001 to meet the high standard of international requirements.
In July and August, auditors from Bureau Veritas reviewed the compliance of services and the data centre provided by AS WaveCom with the requirements of ISO 27001/9001. The audit included information security checks and the revision of the structure of technical and security systems, operation processes and documentation. According to Kristian Liivak, a member of the Management Board and CEO of WaveCom AS, WaveCom has always invested in high service availability and security in its activities. “This is the reason why the introduction process of all the required practices only lasted for 6 months, which is a relatively short time for meeting the high standard of internationally recognized requirements.
WaveCom’s data centre is ahead of its time because only the highest-quality equipment and systems from Schneider Electric are used. Exceptional security is, among other things, evident from the use and monitoring of face recognition systems and biometric access to server towers,” explained Kristian Liivak.
ISO certification is a significant landmark in AS WaveCom’s strategic development plan. Standard ISO 27001:2005 requires that companies holding the certificate monitor and assess security risks on an ongoing basis, as well as implement measures to mitigate such risks and the professional handling of all incidents to restrict their impact. To be eligible for the certificate, the company undertakes to conduct annual revisions of its security policy both internally and through external auditors.
Services provided by WaveCom’s data centres are used by demanding customers from Estonia and all over the world, including Europe, America, and Asia. The information security and availability certificate provides customers and partners with unwavering confidence, demonstrates the reliability of the company and proves that, in its business, WaveCom operates according to the best generally accepted practices.
