ISO 27001 Information Security Certification
Integra is certified for ISO 27001
ISO 27001 is the global gold standard for securing information. The Information Security Management System (ISMS) that ISO 27001 provides enables Integra to operate a data secure organization.
Very few companies actually achieve ISO 27001 certification. According to ISO.org, only 28,426 companies worldwide were certified in 2016 -- among them Xerox, Pfizer and Vodafone. We are also proud to be among the select group of companies who care about customer's data.
Data security, privacy and confidentiality of your information
When you outsource your tasks to a supplier, it must be in trusted hands. As a business, the security of your data is your responsibility and you have to ensure that it is properly safe guarded. We are fully aware of this and that is why we have taken every precaution to safeguard your data when it is with us. This is the primary reason why we have implemented ISO 27001 at our branch in India.
We deal with very sensitive information such as bank logins, credit card logins, social security, information etc. on a daily basis. We are extremely aware of the sensitiveness of the data and have taken all possible measures to ensure the safety of your data. It is only due to our strict data handling procedures, we have never had any security issues since our company inception (2004). It is also the reason why our clients trust us with all their confidential information which has allowed us to grow to hundreds of staff.
We also are a Pennsylvania, USA Corporation and we abide by the same privacy and confidentiality laws as you do.
