    Empowering Our Clients with Enhanced Data Security

    Over the past year, we have been diligently working towards acquiring the ISO 27001 certification. After months of hard work and collaboration, we are thrilled to announce that Navarik is on track to become ISO 27001 certified in 2024! Let's dive into the significance and the benefits of this certification. 

    What is the ISO 27001 Certification?

    ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized standard that sets out the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS). Simply put, it's all about establishing a framework ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data assets within an organization. Obtaining and upholding this certification showcases Navarik's commitment to data security and protecting our clients' valuable information. 

    Why ISO 27001? 

    While there are other certifications or standards available with similar goals, Navarik has committed to ISO 27001 with the interest of our business and valued clients in mind:  

    1. ISO 27001 is a formal international security certification standard. The standard is widely accepted, and applied uniformly to every industry across the globe, ensuring consistency in secure data handling for all businesses. 

    2. Navarik is a key contributor to global business. As we continue expanding our services globally, we recognize that cybersecurity within and across borders is more important now than ever. With a certified and resilient framework in place, businesses can trust that partnering with us is a secure choice. 

    3. While the process of obtaining ISO 27001 certification may be demanding, we have wholeheartedly invested our efforts towards effectively protecting our present and future data assets. Once certified, Navarik is committed to upholding this certification with data security at the forefront of our operations.
