thebigword Receives Cyber Security Boost with ISO 22301
There are more than 30,000 major cyber-attacks per day and as more people and businesses rely on technology to store and share sensitive information, the risk of cyberattacks will increase.
As we see advances in technology and new potential threats emerging, ensuring an ongoing process and regular cybersecurity checks are essential for businesses moving forward.
thebigword has secured the ISO 22301 certification, which is an international standard that allows businesses to implement, maintain and improve a business continuity management system.
The ISO 22301 standard helps businesses to understand and prioritise threats and defines the steps needed to take to reduce the threat of disruption, protection of assets if something does go wrong and the ability to recover quickly from any incidents.
Joshua Gould, Chief Executive Officer at thebigword said: "It used to be that CEOs would outsource cybersecurity and business continuity and then forget about it, however we now live in a world where major business disruption can take place when an individual hacker targets your business and rogue states are using armies of hackers to generate cash.
It was therefore critical for us to implement standards around cybersecurity, resilience and business continuity and to ensure that these are reviewed by our Executive Management Board on a regular basis.
Our ISO 22301 certification is just one of the measures we have taken to ensure the safety of our database and showcases our strict business continuity process which allows us to reduce the threat of disruption to our business."
The certification was awarded after an in-depth external audit, with an impressive review for thebigword's people, processes and practices. The ISO 22301 certification is just one of many professional standards that thebigword has acquired to help protect the business for clients, employees and their supply chain.
thebigword is one of the largest language service providers globally, utilising the greatest minds and boundary shattering technology to deliver phenomenal quality at scale to both their clients and linguist network.
