Aculab and Jenetric each receive ISO certifications
Aculab has been recommended for ISO 27001 accreditation, providing assurance to the company’s voice biometrics customers of the security of their data.
The accreditation provides “requirements for an information security management system (ISMS),” to help ensure that companies have sufficiently robust security to manage sensitive assets like financial information, intellectual property, employees’ biometric data, and more.
Aculab’s implementation of an ISMS follows the company’s updating its Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) solution Aculab Cloud in December.
According to the UK company, the necessity of achieving such a milestone now derives from the increased online activity worldwide caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Aculab’s ISMS covers the implementation of an Access Control Policy, the screening of new employees, enforcing security around the physical premises, and more.

According to the German biometrics company, receiving the certification makes responsibility towards people and nature an integral part of its corporate practice.
