Optis Announces ISO 27001 Certification at HR Tech Conference

In life, we all take great strides to protect our personal data and identity. We rip up all those credit card offerings we receive in the mail, we run our free annual credit report each year, and keep our social security cards tucked away in a safe place. This week we announced big news - and more proof that you can rest assured that your data is safe with Optis.

Earlier in the week we exhibited at the HR Technology Conference in Las Vegas and revealed that after a rigorous auditing process, we obtained our ISO 27001 certification. Established by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 27001 is the international standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). It provides the framework for an ISMS that enables the continued accessibility, confidentiality and integrity of information as well as legal compliance. It has been adopted globally with over 15,000 certificates issued in 117 countries, and is the most stringent certification for information security controls. To summarize, this certification is big deal, and we’re very proud to have it.


“Earning the ISO 27001 certification provides additional assurance to our clients that our long-standing security best practices provide protection of their most valuable information at the highest possible standard,” says Richard Ganzce, Director of Information Technology and Security for Optis.

So, what does this mean for our customers and partners?

  • Confirmation of data security - your personal information continues to be protected and upheld
  • Business continuity – our framework is rigorously tested to avoid downtime and security concerns. Assurance that customer data, financial information and intellectual property are protected from loss, theft and damage.
  • All of this is tested and verified by a third party.

A tremendous amount of hard work and preparedness went into achieving this certification. We thank everyone here at Optis who helped us obtain this highly respected designation.
