We are delighted to announce that Forter has successfully obtained ISO 27001 and ISO 27701 certifications!

These new certifications add to our existing suite of security certifications (notably PCI Level 1 and SOC2 Type II certifications) and demonstrate our ongoing commitment to safeguarding sensitive information, protecting the privacy of our customers, and complying with data protection laws and the highest security standards.

ISO 27001 is the internationally leading best practice standard for information security management and operations. It provides a systematic approach to managing sensitive information to ensure its confidentiality, integrity, and availability. ISO 27701 is an extension to ISO 27001 that focuses on privacy information management. It provides a framework for protecting personal data, ensuring compliance with privacy regulations, enhancing privacy practices, and minimizing the risk to individual privacy rights.

Forter underwent a rigorous audit process by an independent third-party auditor to obtain these certifications. The auditor evaluated both our information security management system (ISMS) and our privacy information management system (PIMS) against the requirements of the ISO standards, the most widely recognized international standards for information security and privacy best practices.

The audit covered all aspects of our information security and privacy practices, including risk management, business continuity, access controls, incident management, and compliance with global privacy regulations, including the GDPR and the CCPA. 

In today’s digital world, cybersecurity is of utmost importance for any company that deals with personal or other sensitive data, and ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data is crucial for maintaining the trust of our customers. 

Being granted ISO 27001 and ISO 27701 certifications means that Forter has demonstrated to an independent third-party auditor that we have implemented robust security and privacy practices that meet the highest international standards and industry best practices. These new certifications bolster our commitment to information security and privacy and can give our customers confidence that their data is being kept secure and that Forter is handling their data securely and in compliance with global data protection regulations.  

Organizations worldwide entrust Forter with their sensitive data, and we take this responsibility seriously. We are proud to have achieved this significant milestone!
