INSIDE Secure achieves company-wide ISO/IEC 27001 certification

AIX EN PROVENCE, FRANCE: INSIDE Secure, a leader in semiconductor solutions for secure transactions, has earned another prestigious ISO certification, this time attaining ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certifications for the company's development centers in Aix en Provence, Singapore and Warsaw.

Additionally, INSIDE announced that its facility in Aix en Provence has been evaluated and approved by auditors for the development of Common Criteria certified products, significantly enhancing the resources available to the company for the creation of new secure microcontrollers and other security products.

“With these ISO 27001 certifications for our remaining development centers, INSIDE has now achieved its goal for company-wide IT security, and has demonstrated to our customers worldwide that the security of their information is paramount and that INSIDE will protect it in accordance with the strict guidelines and principles set out by ISO for effective information security management systems,” said Charles Walton, COO at INSIDE Secure. “We are also very pleased by the Common Criteria site approval for our center in Aix and the flexibility this gives us to take advantage of the considerable engineering talent and other resources at that facility in expanding our development of secure microcontrollers and other Common Criteria certified products.”

ISO/IEC 27001 is the only auditable international standard that defines the requirements for an information security management system (ISMS). It helps companies protect their information assets and provide confidence to their customers and other interested parties.

The INSIDE facilities were audited and recommended for ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification by the British Standards Institution (BIS), the National Standards Body of the UK, with a globally recognized reputation for independence, integrity and innovation in the production of standards that promote best practice. The certification is valid for three years, and requires reassessment audits to be performed annually.

In 2008 INSIDE was granted ISO 9001:2000 certification for quality management, validating the efficiency of the company’s dedicated and systematic quality program and making INSIDE one of an elite group of companies that have demonstrated continuous improvement of the quality policies specified by ISO 9001:2000 standards.
