At Crypto APIs securing our customers’ information and digital assets has always been of paramount importance to us. Therefore, it is with immense honor that we announce that Crypto APIs is now ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified.
This certification marks an important milestone in our company’s journey as a B2B software as a service provider offering customers easy interaction with blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
In order to achieve the certification, Crypto APIs’ compliance was validated by an independent audit firm, TÜV Rheinland. TÜV is one of the world’s leading testing service providers with over 150 years dedicated to improving safety and quality.
We have always been committed to safeguarding our customer’s data by establishing uncompromising security and privacy standards, practices, and procedures and adopting quantum-safe blockchain technology. Our ISO 27001:2013 certification is clear evidence of this commitment.
“The certification highlights Crypto APIs' commitment to cybersecurity and privacy. They are the pillars of our business and crucial to the success of our customers. Attaining ISO 27001:2013 builds on the trust with our partners, giving them additional assurance that our infrastructure, operations, and team are dedicated to maintaining the highest security standards.”, said Nashwan Khatib, CEO of Crypto APIs, regarding the acquired certification.
ISO 27001:2013 is an internationally recognized standard set for information security management systems (ISMS) within the context of an organization. The standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving ISMS.
It allows businesses to prove to their customers that the information shared with the company is secure. It also evaluates the organization’s approach to security threats and vulnerabilities and ensures appropriate controls are put in place to mitigate any security risks.
The ISO/IEC 27001 standard was originally established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in 2005. A revision with stricter requirements was later adopted in 2013. ISO 27001 is similar to the SOC 2 framework, which is more closely associated with North America.
Currently, ISO 27001 is the only globally recognized and auditable security standard for the evaluation of a business’s ability to protect sensitive and confidential data. While it is not a mandatory certification for organizations, for Crypto APIs, it is an essential investment and a validation of how seriously we take security, privacy, and data protection.
