Your information is in safe hands with us
Expansion guarantees Information security
Expansion knows that adequate information security is of the utmost importance for any organization. With our well thought-out solutions and services around digital document management we do everything we can to guarantee that documents are safe and always directly accessible. Expansion naturally complies with all applicable laws and regulations regarding information security, but goes much further. Information security is central to all our actions.
ISO Certification at Expansion: a step beyond legislation and regulations
An important step in this is our NEN ISO 27001 certification. This is an international standard for information security and how you deal with it as an organization. With this certification we can guarantee our customers that their information is in safe hands with us. Safety that is also verifiable, because that is what a NEN ISO 27001 certification entails. It is an extensive set of agreements and protocols that provide insight into what we do and how we do it to protect your information. Information is crucial for the survival of your organization and we understand that all too well at Expansion.
That is why we at Expansion attach so much value to this NEN ISO 27001 certification: this certification is not mandatory for all applications, but we want to offer absolute certainty that we take good care of your information. In a time when one data breach after another comes to the surface, it is good to think of what you can do to prevent your organization from being the next victim. You can expect that from your ICT partners. Expansion offers security in this area.
NEN ISO 27001 provides clarity
NEN ISO 27001 contains requirements for the information security management system. The standard creates transparency and clarity with regard to information security policy. That is exactly what Expansion stands for: clarity about what can be expected and recording that. Everyone knows and understands on the basis of this NEN ISO 27001 certification what the goals are with regard to information security and what it takes to achieve those goals.
This creates a clear picture of the relationships and responsibilities between Expansion and its customers. With this NEN ISO 27001 standard, Expansion can demonstrate to its customers that it meets all required (international) standards for information security. This gives our customers a concrete basis for determining their strategy for information security. The certification is checked regularly by external, specialized audit firms. Expansion attaches great importance to these audits and always amply meets all requirements. Demonstrable (!) safety for everything. Only then does our NEN ISO 27001 certificate give the customer the guarantee at all times that our information security system meets all requirements, both technical and organizational.
NEN ISO 27001 certificate reduces business risks
What Expansion actually does with its NEN ISO 27001 certification is reducing business risks for its customers. The NEN ISO 27001 standard specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, executing, checking, assessing, maintaining and improving a documented information security system in the context of the general business risks of an organization.
In summary: it describes and records exactly which steps we take and which protocols we follow to protect your information (permanently) against unauthorized eyes and improper use. It forms the basis for an adequate, workable and verifiable information security system. That is important for our customers. But also for Expansion as a provider of these services, because we keep a grip on the processes and actions surrounding customer information at all times. That gives everyone peace.
Risk management related to information management
Risk management with regard to information management is high on the agendas in all boardrooms, because laws and regulations are being enforced more strictly. Fines can amount to as much as 8% of global sales. Continuity, reliability and integrity are of paramount importance to Expansion. The NEN ISO 27001 certification contributes greatly to this by transparency, clarity, unambiguity and securing processes surrounding information security.
For example, in 2018 as many as 5,500 data breaches were reported to the Dutch Data Protection Authority (AP). And that was probably just the tip of the iceberg, according to AP.
NEN ISO 27001 is the standard that provides certainty that Expansion makes every effort demonstrable and verifiable to prevent anything dishonorable from happening with (privacy-sensitive) data. That makes Expansion a reliable party to work with.
