FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
EDMOND, May 11, 2021 -- TokenEx, a leader in protecting the world's most sensitive data, today announced it has added ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification to its already impressive trust package. After an independent audit, the designation validates the security of the company’s data protection platform and reaffirms its compliance with policies and procedures beyond security industry and international data protection standards.
“By adding the rigorous ISO 27001 certification to our trust package, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to protecting clients’ data as a top priority,” said Alex Pezold, founder, and CEO of TokenEx. “We are continually improving our processes and reaffirming the mission to use our industry-leading platform to support clients in securing sensitive data while enabling their most critical business processes.”
ISO 27001 was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and is a recognized and respected information security management standard that specifies best practices and comprehensive security controls for technology platforms and systems. This certification process encompassed the people, policies, processes, and technologies used to ensure a sustained focus on information security.
TokenEx will undergo this audit annually and use it, along with other compliance framework requirements, to drive continual improvement of its information security posture. This certification is significant to the company’s customers and partners as it determines the ability of the company’s Information Security Management System (ISMS) to meet applicable statutory, regulatory, and contractual requirements.
