HCC Embedded achieves ISO 27001 certification
HCC Embedded has been awarded ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, one of the most widely recognized and internationally accepted information security standards. This certification reflects both HCC's long-term commitment to quality management principles and its expertise in managing risk and protecting data on behalf of the company and its customers.
With the rising frequency of data breaches, security lapses, and cyber attacks, the ISO family of standards for managing information security has become increasingly important. HCC is building up its safety processes to serve the growing demands of industries such as automotive that require ISO 26262 compliance and demand proper processes for software development. All these standards require that companies developing to them are built on sound and auditable processes that manage all aspects of risk within a system of continuous improvement.
ISO 27001 uses a risk-based approach that identifies requirements and specifications for a comprehensive Information Security Management System (ISMS). The standard defines how organizations should manage information securely, including applicable security controls. To achieve this certification, an independent audit firm validated HCC’s security compliance and completed a rigorous process, in which HCC demonstrated an ongoing systematic approach to managing and protecting company and customer data. The audit process covered areas such as risk management procedures, threat mitigation, loss prevention, access control, physical security, and security practices.
