Genetec achieves cybersecurity certifications
February 6, 2023 By SP&T Staff
Genetec says it has once again achieved a number of cybersecurity certifications — the company has maintained the ISO 27001 certification for the sixth consecutive year and obtained the ISO 27017 certification.
With ISO 27001 and 27017 certifications, Genetec customers “can be confident they are working with an organization that has put stringent controls in place to manage sensitive data and mitigate cyber threats when they’re using the company’s cloud solutions,” said the Montreal-based company in a press release.
Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), ISO/IEC 27017 builds on the principles of the ISO 27001 standard, which provides a checklist of controls for a company’s establishment, operation and maintenance of an information security management system.
ISO 27017 focuses on the protection of the information in cloud services with a focus on major control areas including asset management, access control, physical security, and compliance. With ISO 27017, an organization’s system and processes are subject to stringent security and privacy standards.
Genetec has also received the UL 2900-2-3 level 3 cybersecurity certification for the fourth year in a row and says it remains the only VMS vendor in the world to have achieved this certification.
In addition, Genetec has also passed the SOC 2 Type 2 audit to include its portfolio of cloud products and ISMS that govern them. The SOC 2 Type 2 audit, conducted by third parties, covers five key areas: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. Genetec has also obtained the SOC 3 report.
“Certification with ISO and UL standards, and SOC 2 Type 2 audits are essential elements of our comprehensive approach to cyber resilience. Customers can be sure we have the right policies and procedures in place to manage sensitive data when they use our cloud solutions or hybrid deployments,” said Mathieu Chevalier, principal security architect, Genetec, in a statement.
