AU10TIX and Folio announce certification to international data security and privacy standards
AU10TIX has earned certification to the ISO/IEC 27701 standard for data security, indicating its responsible handling of personally identifiable information (PII) like biometrics.
The company notes in the announcement the simultaneous spike in demand for digital customer onboarding and remote verification for services like virtual doctor’s appointments and remote learning, and general global awakening to data privacy issues.
The ISO/IEC 27701 standard is an extension to ISO/IEC 27001, which details specific requirements for information security management.
“AU10TIX’s line of business is closely tied to both trends and as the company continues to process and verify more data, we must also add more protection,” explains Moran Shalom Sedbon, chief information security officer, AU10TIX. “We’ve made significant investments over the last several years to bolster our information security and privacy infrastructure, and the ISO/IEC 27701 Certification is an indicator that the investments were well-made. We look forward to continuing the work we’ve done to earn ISO/IEC 27701, ISO/IEC 27001 and to comply with global privacy regulations in order to provide our customers and communities safe services.”
AU10TIX says it is one of the first companies to earn the certification, which replaces lengthy audits in allowing businesses to determine its trustworthy handling of data.
A Trust Stamp executive recently co-wrote an article on the importance of standards like ISO/IEC 27701 to the biometrics industry.
