FEXCO Corporate Payments (FCP) has today become the first Irish Payment Service Provider to receive the esteemed ISO 27001 Certification.
Developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) and awarded by Certification Europe, ISO 27001 is the international standard, recognised globally for managing risks to the security of information held by an organisation.
ISO is the world’s largest developer and publisher of International Standards. ISO 27001 specifies the requirements and processes to enable a business to establish, implement, review and monitor, manage and maintain effective information security. The certificate was awarded to FCP following a rigorous auditing process conducted by Certification Europe.
Ruth McCarthy, CEO FEXCO Corporate Payments commented: “We are delighted to receive this certification today in recognition of our standards, processes and continued innovations when it comes to securely managing the information of our clients.”
“Companies processing payments data need to do everything in their power to ensure their customer’s data is secured to the highest of standards.”
Michael Brophy, CEO of Certification Europe and industry leading expert in ISO 27001 added: “A number of high profile hacks and data breaches around the world in recent times have brought the issue of information technology security to the forefront of the world’s attention.”
“In 2016 the management and protection of data is a growing concern for clients and stakeholders alike. Having achieved an ISO 27001 certification, we are confident that FEXCO Corporate Payments has continually demonstrated their commitment to maintaining the confidentiality of its clients’ data and protecting this information from misuse, corruption or loss. Their clients can be comfortable in the knowledge that FEXCO provides best practices for information security management.”
Ruth McCarthy concluded, “We are very proud to have achieved this certification which recognises FCP as one of the most secure Irish-owned payments companies. I would like to commend and to thank the FCP team for their continued hard work and diligence in this project.”
