Asset lifecycle software specialist Glider is delighted to announce that as of March 2022, it has renewed its ISO 27001 certification with zero non-conformities. At a time when information security and the value of data across the built environment has never been more critical, the ISO 27001 demonstrates Glider’s effective strategy for maintaining a secure infrastructure
As part of Glider’s commitment to security defence, its flagship product gliderbim® –has been reaccredited with the leading information security standard ISO 27001. gliderbim® is an intelligent information management platform which supports the whole asset data lifecycle. As a software provider which hosts sensitive information, Glider takes its security responsibilities seriously and strives to maintain internationally recognised standards.
Nick Hutchinson, Managing Director of Glider commented on the certification: “This certification is incredibly important in establishing our commitment to cyber security. It will go a long way in showing our partners and customers that they can trust us to keep their data secure. A big thanks to our team for all their hard work in achieving this accreditation.”
“At Glider we have an ongoing commitment to protecting data and always aim to keep our standards up to date.”
The objective of ISO 27001 is to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and proper availability of the information within an organisation. For an organisation to obtain an ISO 27100, it must undergo an independent risk assessment to prove its systematic methodology for risk mitigation and treatment, through its security controls. Obtaining this certification proves that Glider has proper safeguards in place to ensure data security. The implementation of ISO 27001 also validates that Glider’s processes are well-organised and compliant with legal requirements.
“The ISO 27001 reaffirms to our customers that we have the best controls in place to identify and reduce any risks to data privacy,” added Nick Hutchinson.
