When companies outsource, they need to release some sensitive information about their servers and networks to the Outsourcing company. It is imperative that companies thoroughly verify the way Sensitive information is handled by the Outsourcing company.
On 8th May, 2008, Bobcares added one more feather to its crown by having its Information Systems certified with ISO 27001:2005 certification. ISO 27001:2005 is a ISO standard that certifies the security of our Information Systems to face any real or virtual threat. The compliance audit and certification was by British Standards Institution (BSI) and formally accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).
With this milestone, Bobcares has once again become the pioneer in adopting Internationally accepted standards like the ISMS Security Standard to the Web Hosting Industry. It shows our commitment to our Customers' Information and our preparations to face the ever growing threats to Information in this digitized age.
