A Know Your Customer technology company, VerifyMe Nigeria, has received two ISO certifications from the International Organization for Standardization. The certifications are QMS ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management System) and ISMS ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (Information Security Management Systems).
ISO 9001:2015 involves the structure of an organization along with the planning, processes, resources, and documented information that is used to achieve quality objectives. Certification demonstrates a company’s commitment to quality, customer focus, risk-based thinking, and continuous improvement.
ISO 27001:2013 ISO/IEC 27001:2013 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organization. It guarantees the security of information in all its forms, whether digital, on paper or in the cloud. Other benefits include improving the organization’s resistance to attack, responsiveness to evolving security threats, and fostering a holistic company culture geared towards understanding risks and adopting security controls.
