Verisys Corporation Achieves ISO 27001 Certification
ISO 27001 Certification Demonstrates Verisys’ Commitment to the Highest Standards of Information Security and Data Protection
Verisys Corporation, a technology, and health care data provider dedicated to mitigating legal, financial, and regulatory risk for its clients and their end-users by delivering mission-critical data on providers and their credentials announces that they have received ISO 27001 Certification, the international standard outlining best practices for information security management systems (ISMS). Compliance with these standards validates Verisys Corporation’s commitment to its core mission of protecting patients and the organizations that serve them.
The ISO 27001 family of standards is one of the few standards that uses a top-down, risk-based approach to evaluation and ensures that organizations have established methodologies and a framework that identifies requirements and specifications for a comprehensive ISMS. The standard defines how an organization should manage and treat information more securely while meeting key objectives and reducing risk through applicable security controls.
Verisys underwent in-depth testing and assessment by A-Lign, a third-party auditor to validate compliance with this standard. Maintenance of the certification requires an annual review and a three-year re-certification, giving Verisys users confidence that their data is continuously protected under these standards.
“Verisys is committed to protecting the data of our customers and the providers and patients they serve, and this certification is one way for us to prove that commitment,” said Verisys Corporation Director of Security, Quality and Compliance Jon Hemze. “We are proud of this certification as one piece of the risk management puzzle and will continue to add more pieces to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information we process and store.”
Recently, Verisys achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification, another indication of the company’s deep commitment to quality. Additionally, in March 2018 Verisys received full re-certification from NCQA for 11 out of 11 verification services. Verisys is one of only a few Credential Verification Organizations (CVOs) both URAC accredited and NCQA certified. Verisys has been NCQA certified and URAC accredited since 2008.
