Binocs is a product of Bluecrux.
At Binocs, we always considered information security as very crucial: we had our first ISMS (Information Security Management System) in 2016. Goal: To make sure we comply with the security requirements of modern enterprise cloud applications and expectations from your clients.
End of 2018, we initiated a complete rehaul of our ISMS during which we would align it with the latest market requirements like e.g., compliance with ISO27001.
In parallel with this project, we felt the market confirming the importance of information security: all new clients we engage with come with a series of questions about information security. Some clients also screened our websites for security best practices.
Although different clients will always have different (info security) questions, one of the reasons to go for the IS027001 based ISMS is to have a common, industry standard-based, reply towards (at least some) of their questions.
Back to our ISMS rehaul project: after different risk assessments, rewriting of current procedures, aligning with stakeholders, a draft audit, we reached the official two-stage ISO27001 audits. These happened in Q4 of last year and were done by LRQA (part of Lloyds Register) with UKAS as an accreditation body.
The audit resulted in 3 minor non-conformities (actions ongoing) and two days before Christmas; we got our certificate… Bluecrux is ISO/IEC 27001 certified*.
A big thank you to our consulting and product teams for this great achievement!
