ISO 27001 Certification Provides Independent Verification that Bugcrowd’s CrowdcontrolTM Platform Exceeds Industry Security Standards
SAN FRANCISCO – January 30, 2018 – Bugcrowd, the leader in crowdsourced security testing, announced today it has been awarded ISO 27001 certification, one of the most widely recognized and internationally accepted information security standards. To achieve the certification, Bugcrowd’s security compliance was validated by an independent audit firm after a rigorous process of demonstrating an ongoing and systematic approach to managing and protecting company and customer data.
One of the few standards that uses a top-down, risk-based approach to evaluation, ISO 27001 identifies requirements and specifications for a comprehensive Information Security Management System (ISMS), defining how an organization should manage and treat information more securely, including applicable security controls. As the first crowdsourced security testing platform to achieve ISO 27001, this accreditation demonstrates that Bugcrowd upholds the highest standards in security.
“The high sensitivity of information shared on the Crowdcontrol platform requires best-in-class security – our customers and researchers depend on it,” said David Baker, CSO, Bugcrowd. “Bugcrowd is committed to upholding the highest standards of security for the processes, people and technology powering our services. Protecting customer data and researcher data is of the utmost importance to us and this ISO 27001 is just the start.”
The ISO 27001 standard ensures that organizations have established methodologies and a framework to business and IT processes to help identify, manage and reduce risks to the security of information.
