TORONTO and OTTAWA, April 2, 2019 /CNW/ - 2Keys Corporation, an employee owned Canadian cyber security and digital identity company providing managed and professional services, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded ISO 27017 and ISO 27018, complementing the company's ISO 27001 certification received in January 2019.
ISO 27017 is the international standard outlining best practices for the provision and use of Public and Private Cloud Services. ISO 27018 is the international standard for the protection and safeguarding of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in the Public Cloud. These additional awards provide assurance to our clients that the managed services 2Keys provide in the Cloud for clients will follow best practices for safeguarding their, and their stakeholder's data, identities and PII.
In today's digital world, cyber threats are becoming increasingly complex, targeting Cloud networks, digital infrastructures including IoT, devices, PII and digital identities. As more data, applications, digital identities, PII and devices move to the Cloud, a unique set of information security challenges arise.
To help protect against these evolving cyber threats, organizations and specifically managed service providers are assisted by following industry best practices as set out by recognized standards bodies such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Implementing strong security controls in the Public and Private Cloud helps ensure that organizational data and PII will be protected. The protection of PII in the Cloud is critical to establishing trust with clients and users alike across Canada's Public and Private organizations.
Adherence to the ISO 27001, ISO 27017 and ISO 27018 standards demonstrates 2Keys' commitment to the responsible protection of information held within our Corporate, MSS and SOC environments. Achieving these standards further demonstrates 2Keys' commitment to upholding the highest standards of security architecture and design, secure application development, service delivery and 24/7 operations for our developed applications, our Managed Digital Identity and Cyber Security Services.
Shawn Heeley, VP of Customer Solutions at 2Keys said, "We are pleased to have achieved these milestones. We look forward to helping clients design and migrate their use cases and applications to the Cloud with availability, integrity, confidentiality and privacy as foundational principles."
