Celfocus reinforces its strategy of guaranteeing the best international certification practices.
Celfocus has just obtained ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and ISO/IEC 27701:2019 certifications, in the development, delivery, and maintenance of technological solutions, as well as in all support processes. In practice, Celfocus thus reinforces its commitment to adopt and guarantee the best practices of information security and protection of personal data in the development of digital transformation solutions for its customers.
Celfocus has in its portfolio clients from more than twenty-five countries, leading companies in the telecommunications and financial sectors that, due to the nature of their business, have high demands on the security of their information and the protection of their personal data, which provides systems integration services, using state-of-the-art technologies, focusing on the Digital and Cognitive segments. For the success of the entire operation, the various areas of the organization were involved, which contributed to the respective standardization of information security practices and the protection of personal data.
According to Luís Anselmo, Information Security Manager at Celfocus, “information security and data protection have an increasingly important role on the agenda of organizations’ decision-makers. At Celfocus, we are aware of the relevance of these topics, so, although we already have all the processes implemented in order to comply with the requirements for security and protection of personal data, we have advanced with the certification, with APCER. It is a way for us to unequivocally commit to what is most important to our stakeholders – the protection of their information”, he concludes.
In the case of the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard, its adoption was essentially related to the fact that it was recognized by the majority of the company’s customers, facilitating work with their teams and, above all, establishing a standard for the safety behavior of information in the activities developed by Celfocus teams.
Additionally, given the importance of protecting personal data, both internally and by customers, the ISO/IEC 27701:2019 standard was adopted, whose requirements guarantee a secure treatment of personal data, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation. (RGPD), as well as compliance with legal and regulatory requirements applicable in the various geographies in which the company operates.
The choice of APCER resulted from the fact that it is the certifying entity of the remaining certifications held by Celfocus (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001) and for being a reference in Portugal. The 1st phase of the concession audit was carried out in May and, given the maturity of the Information Security and Privacy Management Systems, the 2nd phase was carried out in June and the process was concluded with the issuance of certificates in July.
Obtaining these certifications reinforces the trust of customers, partners, suppliers, and employees.
Formed in 2000, Celfocus is a company of the Novabase Group. Celfocus develops products and solutions in the area of Digital Transformation, providing consulting and systems integration services in Europe and the Middle East, in sectors such as Telecommunications and Financial Services, among others.
