EPEC Achieves ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Certification

Reading time ( words)

Epec Engineered Technologies, a leading provider of custom electronic solutions, announced today that the company has achieved ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, a globally recognized standard for information security management systems. This certification validates Epec's commitment to implementing and maintaining the highest levels of data security for its customers.

"At Epec, we understand that data security is paramount in today's digital landscape," said Ed McMahon, President of Epec Engineered Technologies. "Achieving ISO 27001 certification is a major milestone for our company, and it is a testament to our unwavering commitment to providing our customers with the highest levels of data security."

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an international standard for information security management systems (ISMS). It provides a systematic approach to managing sensitive information, including people, processes, and IT systems, in a way that minimizes risks and ensures confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. The certification process requires organizations to establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve their ISMS, in compliance with ISO 27001 standards.

With this certification, Epec has demonstrated that it has implemented a comprehensive ISMS that meets the highest international standards for information security management. This includes implementing strong access controls, conducting regular risk assessments, performing vulnerability testing and penetration testing, and establishing policies and procedures for incident management and business continuity.

Epec's ISO 27001 certification provides several benefits to its customers. By partnering with Epec, customers can be confident that their sensitive data is protected against unauthorized access, disclosure, and alteration. Additionally, Epec's certification provides customers with an independent validation of the company's data security practices, which can be used to meet regulatory requirements or satisfy audit requirements.

"Our ISO 27001 certification is a competitive advantage for Epec," said McMahon. "It sets us apart from other companies in the industry who may only self-certify to low-level NIST and DFARS standards. With our certification, our customers can have peace of mind knowing that we have taken every possible measure to protect their data."

NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement) are standards that are often used by companies to self-certify their information security practices. However, these standards are not as comprehensive as ISO/IEC 27001:2013, and they do not require the same level of rigor in implementing information security controls.

"Epec's ISO 27001 certification demonstrates our commitment to providing the highest level of data security to our customers," said McMahon. "We will continue to invest in our ISMS to ensure that we maintain this certification and continue to exceed our customers' expectations."
