November 25, 2020 | 5 Mins David Daly

Payslip is pleased to announce that we have recently achieved certification in ISO 27001:2013 -this is an important milestone for the company as being certified in ISO 27001:2013  is proof that we meet the highest industry standards for information security management.

This certification is an official confirmation that Payslip has in place a recognized framework for managing people, processes and IT systems in a way that safeguards the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our data.

Data security is a major priority at Payslip, and our certificate confirms that our systems and processes adhere to the highest data privacy and information security standards. The ISO 27001 certification is an internationally recognized standard used across multiple different industries around the world.

Why it matters

Security and Control

We prioritize risk management when it comes to data security and information management processes at Payslip.  The ISO standard enables us to strengthen our security and control when it comes to client data.  Appropriate controls have been implemented to mitigate any risks identified in the process of gaining certification. Our systems and processes are tighter and more controlled, our data is more secure. Complying with ISO 27001 requirements also ensures that we meet all our obligations around data privacy legislation such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Client Confidence

We understand that our clients place a high value on data and information security. Global payroll data often contains sensitive and personally identifiable information, so it is very important that the highest levels of security are in place when it comes to handling client data.

We are always happy to discuss in detail our information security management process here at Payslip, and this certification helps to reassure all of our clients that their data is being managed in a secure and compliant manner.

Compliance

ISO27001:2013 is more than an industry certification, it is a commitment to ongoing compliance and continuous data security improvement. Companies need to complete a comprehensive external review process in order to achieve the certification and there is also a requirement to demonstrate continual improvement when it comes to the privacy and confidentiality of data. Audits need to be undertaken every 6 months to prove we continue to meet the very high standards of ISO27001:2013 and a full re-certification must take place every third year. When a new standard is published, companies must also gain certification in the latest version in order to maintain compliance and information security standards.

This certification confirms the strength, integrity and reliability of all Payslip systems, and we can confirm to all our clients that our technology infrastructure now aligns to the highest international standards.
