    Bangalore: Arctern Consulting Pvt. Ltd., and affiliate Arctern, Inc. a global provider of information technology (IT) and business process outsourcing services (BPO), announced today that it has attained the globally recognized ISO 27001 accreditation.

    The certification covers Arctern’s production offices in Bangalore, Mumbai, and Hyderabad.

    ISO 27001 is the latest international standard developed exclusively for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS), requiring companies to employ a methodical approach to managing sensitive information and ensuring data security.

    ISO 27001 includes 10 exhaustive control categories including: information security policy, security organization, personnel security, access controls, physical security, asset classification controls, continuity planning, system deployment, communication management, and compliance.

    Arctern was evaluated for the efficacy in execution of information security procedures by external auditors, DNV, to guard customers’ and organizations’ confidential information and intellectual property. Periodic internal audits and surveillance audits will ensure that the efficiency is continuous within the organization.

    ”ISO 27001 certification demonstrates to our customers, competitors, suppliers, and staff that we employ industry-respected best practices,” said Bijal Mehta, Managing Director of Arctern. “The robust policies and execution procedures that support ISO 27001 are vital to our operating culture. Our customers can now feel more confident than ever that their information is well protected.”

    “Achieving and maintaining operational excellence and maximizing customer trust and confidence in the company’s IT infrastructure and security capabilities is a strategic imperative for Arctern,” said Ruhi Sharma, Director – Business Process Excellence. “The ISO 27001 certification is a clear milestone toward achieving that objective. That Arctern should receive two major international certifications within a span of nine months is testimony to the high employee and management commitment toward continual improvement.”

    In May this year, Arctern received the ISO 9001: 2008 certification.
