Ava Security is proud to announce ISO 27001 accreditation of our internal security processes.

The certification by BSI shows our continued commitment to good security culture, processes, and technology since the beginning.

Why is Ava’s ISO27001 certification important to you?

ISO 27001 demonstrates Ava Security’s commitment to ensuring that the organization is very serious about information security and also shows that as an organization we have been assessed by an accredited, certified, and competent third party assessor.  

Ava’s partners and customers should be assured that our product design and development processes and the handling and management of all customer data are in accordance with this internationally recognized standard.

What is ISO/IEC 27001?

ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard for managing information security; the standard was originally published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). 

Many organizations adopt ISO 27001 worldwide to demonstrate that they take the management of information and internal security processes very seriously to protect their businesses and their customer’s data.

What does ISO 27001 involve?

In order to become certified, Ava Security has built a comprehensive Information Security Management System (ISMS), an overarching method of managing data, and best protection practices.

This requires organizations to implement controls to manage and monitor security services in a number of areas:

  • Information Security Policies
  • Organization of Information Security
  • Human Resource Security
  • Asset Management
  • Access Control
  • Cryptographic Control
  • Physical and Environmental Security
  • Operations Management
  • Communications Security
  • Security acquisition, development, and maintenance
  • Supplier relationships
  • Information Security Incident Management 
  • Information security aspects of business continuity management
  • Compliance

We started building our ISMS two years ago and it was a comprehensive project involving many people from cross-functional teams across the company.

The design, development, sales, implementation, and support of software for a unified security solution through cyber and video, including cloud hosted services with associated support services including operational delivery

What Certification Process did Ava Security have to go through?

To be certified as ISO 27001 compliant, Ava was audited by a recognized ISO 27001-accredited certification body. 

Ava Security achieved ISO 27001 certification in March 2021. Our first compliance audit was undertaken by the British Standards Institution (BSI) in January 2021 and Ava Security is now audited regularly to ensure ongoing compliance.

What does this mean for Ava's future?

Our commitment to security does not end here; information security is an ongoing process and all employees in Ava will keep working hard to maintain and exceed its security standards to protect both company and customer data. BSI will perform yearly audits to test our continuous compliance as we continue to grow and develop our business.
