The ISO 27701 certification is a newly published privacy extension standard granted to organizations who meet the global standard for effective information security. It provides additional guidance for compliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other crucial data privacy requirements.
After receiving a recommendation from the ISO/IEC accreditation body, the LMS365 product and company has now been declared ISO 27701 certified for its outstanding management of personal information and private data protection. This ISO 27701 privacy extension enables us to take our information security management system (ISMS) to the next level with expanded guidelines on how personally identifiable information (PII) should be managed and protected.
“The ISO 27701 certification gives us an even stronger argument for safety when bringing in new employees and going into the market gaining new customers. We can prove that we securely deal with personal data and have been audited and certified in that regard. It makes us even more trustworthy as a partner and employer—anyone who wants to work with us will know that we are raising the bar for our information security and are thereby a highly trusted company to work with and for.”
Flemming Blåbjerg, Head of Digital Transformation & Compliance, LMS365
Today’s world is increasingly connected; with a more hybrid and globalized workspace than ever before, the need to stay secure grows each day. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2025, 45% of organizations worldwide will have experienced attacks on their software supply chains, a three-fold increase from 2021. The emergence of new threats requires an even higher level of concentration and care when it comes to information security.
LMS365 is dedicated to evolving its information security practices to meet the requirements of the GDPR and other data protection systems. We aim to inspire trust in our partners, clients, and users, and demonstrate that we have stable management structures in place that safeguard their personal information to the utmost degree. After previously receiving our ISO 27001 certification, LMS365 is thrilled to have this ongoing commitment recognized with the ISO 27701 certification for compliance with global privacy regulations.
Trust is one of the four strategic themes that leads LMS365 in our operations. Building trust in our many partners, clients, and users is what motivates LMS365 to continuously improve upon our data security practices, ultimately earning us the ISO 27701 certification. This updated certification maximizes our IT governance, enhances customer trust, and cements our reputation of first-class data protection. It also proves our ability to reduce the risk of data breaches and uphold the privacy rights of LMS365 employees.
“For LMS365 employees and customers, the main component is trust. This certification offers an added layer of security in how we deal with your personal data. We live up to the regulations, like GDPR, that have become a huge part of our work lives. We have streamlined our internal policies and processes and controls, in relation to both how we deal with customers’ data and how we deal with employees’ data. The knife has been sharpened quite a lot over the last year in order to receive this certification.”
Receiving the ISO 27701 certification from the ISO/IEC body sets us apart from the rest. It proves that our product and company meet the highest standards of personal data management necessary for international organizations. It also demonstrates how seriously we take data privacy and the managing of all sensitive information.
This is beneficial for our entire organization and the people we work with on a daily basis. Here’s how:
- For Customers: Nobody wants their private data to fall into the wrong hands; customers can be even more confident that LMS365 is safeguarding their personal information from data breaches and emerging security risks
- For Partners: LMS365 aligns our security standards with those of partner organizations, ensuring increased transparency, more effective business agreements, and a higher confidence in all collaborations
- For Employees: Not only does ISO 27701 increase awareness of GDPR and its significance, but employees are able to explain the magnitude of our data privacy practices to external stakeholders—and feel safely shielded from potential security threats whether working in-house or remotely
The ISO 27701 certification builds upon LMS365’s suite of security tools and credentials.
Our LMS365 app is also supported by Veracode Verified Continuous application security, which certifies that our systems operate securely and are free of data vulnerabilities. Additionally, LMS365 is highlighted as a Microsoft Preferred Solution and has been declared a Microsoft 365 Certified App after successfully meeting the highest level of security and compliance required by Microsoft.
LMS365 is pleased to add the ISO 27701 certification to our growing list of security validations, further showing our commitment to effective and essential data security management.
