Klopp Industries Ltd (the company behind Simple Poll) is now officially certified under ISO 27001.
Your security and privacy are extremely important to us. To demonstrate our commitment to these we have undergone, and subsequently passed ISO 27001 certification. We are officially certified as of April 15th 2020.
What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is an information security management standard. It is internationally recognized and provides a framework of requirements for how an organization should manage their information and data, ensuring that companies seeking certification meet these standards.
As part of the process, an organisation identifies and assesses risks within their processes and controls, ensuring that they’ve taken extensive steps to manage them through an information security management system. For example, as part of this process, we developed and tested a thorough business continuity plan to cover unplanned interruptions to the business.
Over the past months, we have been working to ensure this standard is implemented within our entire organisation across our people, processes, and technology. As mandated for the certification, we then underwent and passed an audit conducted by an external auditor.
What does this mean for me?
Nothing is visibly changing for you on a day-to-day basis. The Simple Poll you’ve used in the past works just as it has before.
Overall, you can rest assured that we take your security and privacy seriously and that we hold ourselves to a high standard. This applies regardless of whether you're using Simple Poll, Simple Decisions, or our recently announced new addition: Simple Goals.
Why did you choose ISO 27001 as your certification standard?
There are a number of security certifications, so why did we choose ISO 27001? We had a number of requirements ahead of picking a certification scheme:
- International Recognition: We were looking for a certification that is internationally recognised and applicable worldwide, to match our global customer base.
- Comprehensiveness: ISO 27001 is a comparatively comprehensive security certification that ensures a high degree of operational maturity and controls across people, processes and IT systems.
- External audit: To demonstrate that we were adequately meeting the demands of the standard required to achieve certification, it was important for us to achieve a formal certificate of compliance from an external auditor.
ISO 27001 was the certification scheme that we deemed to best match our requirements.
