OREANDA-NEWS. OneNeck® IT Solutions successfully completed the 2016 ISO 27001 Surveillance Review. Today's announcement confirms OneNeck's continued compliance with ISO 27001 certification requirements. The scope of the validation includes OneNeck's Tier 3 data centers in Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin, as well as the company's headquarters in Scottsdale, Ariz.

ISO 27001 is the best-known standard when it comes to establishing and recognizing global requirements for the industry's Information Security Management System (ISMS). In order to earn ISO 27001 certification, a company's ISMS is reviewed in a systematic manner. The process includes examination of a company's information security controls, which are scrutinized to ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability of all sensitive information assets.

"On behalf of our customers, we pursued this third-party validation," said Clint Harder, CTO and senior vice president at OneNeck. "Securing this validation offers assurance of our ongoing commitment to meeting the most widely accepted security management parameters in the industry. For our customers, it also affirms we are managing their sensitive customer information in a manner consistent with internationally accepted best practices."

The ISO 27001 ISMS at OneNeck was certified by Schellman & Company, Inc., a leading provider of attestation and compliance services. Schellman is a CPA firm, an ISO Certification Body, a PCI Qualified Security Assessor and a FedRAMP 3PAO.

As a result of the ISO 27001 certification validation, it allows businesses, including many OneNeck customers, to streamline portions of their annual due diligence process.
