Digital finance platform operator Finologee gets ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification
A proof of excellence for Luxembourg’s FinTech scene, demonstrating that fast-paced digital innovation for the financial industry can go hand-in-hand with ISO-certified IT Security excellence, all under the umbrella of a ‘Support PFS’ license.
The Luxembourg digital finance platform operator Finologee (www.finologee.com) has been granted ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, the international standard outlining best practices for information security management systems. Issued by Bureau Veritas, the certification validates that the company’s data security systems meet industry best practices. The ISO/IEC 27001 standard is the leading auditable international benchmark for information security management.
This certification is a cornerstone of Finologee’s operational excellence strategy, aimed at providing clients with an operations infrastructure and processes for their products and platforms that meet the highest international standards, facilitating the financial industry’s quest for optimisation and innovation without compromising on service quality and security.
The implementation of the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard acts as a guarantee that Finologee has established methodologies and a framework of business and IT processes to help identify, manage and reduce risks. It is also a demonstration to customers that the company is wholly committed to safeguarding their information assets through the products and services it provides.
Furthermore, the implementation of the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard lays a robust foundation for the implementation of the latest regulatory requirements from national and European financial industry regulation authorities. It has enabled Finologee to enhance further its formal risk management methodology processes, as laid out by recent updates to national circulars (CSSF Circular 12/552 and CSSF Circular 17/654), and the EBA guidelines on Outsourcing and ICT risks (CSSF Circular 20/750) covering governance, risk assessment, information security, ICT operations management, business continuity plans, and assistance to payment service users, among other topics.
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 an organisation and its business needs.
