Somnetics upgraded to the latest version of ISO/IEC 27001-2013 Certification

Kolkata, March 30th, 2016: We are pleased to announce that Som Imaging Informatics Pvt. Ltd. has successfully upgraded to the latest version of ISO/IEC 27001 certifications. Somnetics was certified with the earlier version of ISO 27001-2005 in the year 2013. Somnetics is also compliant with ISO 9001:2008 and the International gold standard for Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) ISO/IEC 20000-1:2011.

What is ISO/IEC 27001? ISO/IEC 27001 is an internationally recognised standard which helps organisations keep their information assets secure through an Information Security Management System (ISMS).These information assets include intellectual property, Technical know-how, financial or other sensitive information entrusted with these organisations by their clients. Importantly it need not just concern digitally held data, but includes all types of information residing on paper as well. ISO 27001 helps organisations create a framework to keep their vital information and data secure through a thoroughly laid out process and systems.

What it covers? The entire ecosystem of our products and services are covered. They include the Software Development and Production Units, ECM Managed Scanning and Digitization Services and Managed Printing Services.

How we achieved it? Due to the stringent framework imposed by the process, all of the other departments Somnetics had adopted the new standards. The certification process was managed internally by a six person Information Security Management team led by representatives from our I.T. and facilities management team. The ISMS team led by the CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) was responsible for amongst other things, preparing documentation, raising staff awareness and implementing the new procedures and systems effectively.

The assessors from the KVQA Certification made a number of site visits, interviewed staff members and monitored our continued advancement through the process.
