Optis Obtains ISO 27001 Certification

DENVER, Colo. (October 7, 2013) — Optis, a leading provider of people data services and cloud software solutions, announced today that it has achieved certification for the highest security standard in the technology industry, ISO 27001.

“Our clients trust us with their most important information – their employee and workforce data,” said Optis President Archie Anderson. “Our commitment to securing and protecting their people data is unmatched in the employee benefit and leave and absence management space. Attaining the ISO 27001 certification allows us to provide our clients with concrete evidence of our strict data security protocols, giving them confidence and assurance that their information remains protected.”

Established by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 27001 is the international standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). It provides the framework for an ISMS that enables the continued accessibility, confidentiality and integrity of information as well as legal compliance.

For more than twenty-five years, Optis has delivered people data business intelligence and cloud-software services to the human resources, employee benefits and risk management market segments. The firm has been independently audited annually to ensure it upheld the strictest security protocols, achieving a SAS 70 Type II Audit certification in previous years.

“Earning the ISO 27001 certification provides additional assurance to our clients that our long-standing security best practices provide protection of their most valuable information at the highest possible standard,” says Richard Gancze, Director of Information Technology and Security for Optis.

ISO 27001 is the most stringent certification for information security controls. Optis achieved the certification in October 2013 after an intensive independent audit.
