BlueMatrix Achieves Global ISO/IEC 27001 Certification

In the News

We are proud to announce that BlueMatrix has achieved its ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification after a rigorous independent audit of its information security management system (ISMS) by QA Technic, an international certification organization.

“Security threats become more common and advanced each day. Safeguarding our client’s information is integral to our business as an online solutions provider in the investment space,” says Patricia Horotan, CEO and Co-founder. “Our clients trust us with high-value information – their intelligence – and this accomplishment highlights just how much we value that trust. The effort it took to acquire the certification reinforces our commitment to clients to maintain the highest standard of protection when it comes to their information.”

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an international standard set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) that is widely considered a global mark of excellence when it comes to managing information. Getting certified was a major accomplishment on BlueMatrix’s security roadmap. It validates the firm’s adherence to a rigid set of global requirements and best practices for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system.

BlueMatrix worked with Accorian, a consultancy specializing in technology risk assessment and ISO 27001 readiness, to prepare for the audit. The firm guided BlueMatrix through an initial assessment of its existing processes and procedures to identify potential gaps, and provided continuous advice on how to address them.

It was an intensive, year-long process that demanded involvement and support from all members of our team, explains Daniel Faltyn, CIO of BlueMatrix. “I am pleased to say that we had a strong security framework in place at the beginning of our ISO journey and thanks to the diligent work of the team and guidance from Accorian, we proved we have a comprehensive ISMS in place that addresses our clients’ needs for confidentiality, integrity, and availability.”
