Equals Group achieves information security milestone

The Group's technology platform, information, and security systems were subject to a rigorous external audit covering data encryption, vulnerability management, business continuity, disaster recovery plans, and other security controls.

Obtaining the ISO/IEC 27001 certification demonstrates the commitment of Equals to building not only platforms that deliver superior functionality for its customers but concurrently ensuring that platform is both scalable and has the highest levels of security.

“ISO/IEC 27001 is regarded as the international ‘Gold Standard’ of security certifications and this achievement reflects our continued investment into our platform, processes and people along with our commitment to ensuring the security of our customers' data.” - Ian Strafford-Taylor, CEO of Equals

What is ISO 27001 information security management?

The ISO/IEC 27001 certification is the international standard for information security and it specifies and sets out the requirements for an effective information security management system (ISMS).

Promoting best practices, ISO 27001 helps organisations manage and deal with their information security through people, processes, and technology. It does this by setting out a framework to establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain, and continually improve an ISMS.

The resulting certification is a standard recognised worldwide, indicating that the awarded organisation's ISMS is aligned with information security best practices.
