Software Concepts Int’l LLC Attains ISO 27001


December 1, 2020

Integris is pleased to announce that Software Concepts International, LLC (SCI), has achieved ISO 27001 certification.

The ISO 27001 certification has been verified by CIRQ and accredited by ANAB (ANSI National Accreditation Board). Accredited certification to ISO 27001 involves undertaking regular reviews and internal audits to ensure the continual improvement of the Information Security Management System (ISMS).To achieve certification, SCI partnered with Security7 Network’s Security Advisory Services (SAS) practice. Together they worked to establish the formality and completeness of SCI’s ISMS, a framework of policies, documentation, and controls that manage information security and risks systematically across the entire enterprise.

ISO 27001 is one of the most widely recognized and internationally accepted information security standards in the world, specifying the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an ISMS within the context of the organization.

The scope of SCI’s certification covers the management of information security for the processes necessary to deliver Open VMS managed services, CHARON emulation support, Database Administration Managed Services, and Consulting Services to its clients.

To achieve ISO 27001 certification, SCI engaged in an in-depth risk assessment, a comprehensive review of all information security policies, procedures, and controls. As a further step in the validation, the company’s ISMS was assessed via a review of its documentation, practices, and controls by a certified third-party auditor.

“Our customers rely on our services to safeguard their critical OpenVMS infrastructure and data,” said Bryan Holland, SCI’s CEO. “This certification demonstrates SCI’s commitment to placing security and process control at the heart of all of our services and products, giving our customers the highest degree of confidence in the management of their mission-critical systems.”

About ISO 27001

ISO 27001 provides requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system. The information security management system preserves the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information by applying a risk management process and gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed.

The information security management system is integrated with the organization’s processes and overall management structure, and that information security is considered in the design of processes, information systems, and controls. It is expected that an information security management system implementation will be scaled in accordance with the needs of the organization.

Internal and external parties can use this International Standard to assess the organization’s ability to meet information security requirements. ISO 27001 can be mapped to other information security schemes such as SOC 2 and CMMC.
