ISO/IEC 27001 is the most widely used information security standard prepared and published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards. It includes requirements on how to implement, monitor, maintain, and continually improve an Information Security Management System (ISMS) within the context of the organization and its business needs.

The certification was validated following an assessment that covered management systems of the delivery of malicious and suspicious files using the Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) infrastructure, as well as safe storage and access to these files in the company’s Distributed File System (KLDFS). This include the company’s data centers in Zurich, Switzerland; Frankfurt, Germany; Toronto, Canada and Moscow, Russia.

“Receiving the ISO 27001 certification is a significant accomplishment for Kaspersky that demonstrates to our customers and partners that the company prioritizes security management controls as well as indicating our verifiable approach to information security. The rigorous audit undertaken for certification confirms that we are committed to the highest levels of data security and marks one more step in our efforts to demonstrate the company’s transparency,” said Andrey Evdokimov, Chief Information Security Officer at Kaspersky.
