Wed, 20th Mar 2024

Human Managed, an expert platform for cloud-native data, has been endorsed with the ISO /IEC 27001:2022 certification as a clear demonstration of its commitment to maintaining industry-respected information security standards for all processes, activities, and systems.

Founded in 2018, Human Managed is a cloud-native data platform that empowers businesses to make smarter decisions and faster actions for cyber, digital and risk outcomes. The company helps enterprises of all sizes organise and get visibility of their data. It serves them personalised intelligence to make better operational decisions, helping them overcome problems of information overload, siloed technologies, and legacy architecture. 

Karen Kim, CEO of Human Managed, describes the achievement of the ISO /IEC 27001:2022 certification as a testament to its steadfast dedication to security. "The ISO /IEC 27001:2022 certification is a significant milestone for Human Managed and a testament to our unwavering commitment to security excellence. We understand the critical importance of safeguarding sensitive data in today's digital landscape, particularly within the realm of data analytics," she said.

Kim further illuminates how this certification, whilst not a common expectation for startups, represents the company's effort to showcase "our extremely mature practices and standards of information management."

The ISO /IEC 27001:2022 certification, issued by ANAB, is recognised worldwide as an exemplar for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) that outlines good practices and controls to guide organisations in managing and safeguarding their information assets.

However, a rigorous audit successfully validated their proactive and robust approach to information security. Effectively, this certification substantiates the company's ability to manage risks related to data handling and processing capably.

Kim touted the certification's value: "This certification reaffirms our dedication to providing our customers, partners, and employees with the highest level of security assurance."

The company currently serves vital service sectors, including global banking, financial services (clearing houses, payment systems), and educational institutions in the ASEAN markets, including the Philippines and Cambodia.

With the new ISO certification in place, Human Managed's current clients and potential customers are expected to develop amplified confidence and trust in its processes. Above all, the certification will facilitate access to the global market, setting the stage for the company's further growth and expansion.

Distinctively, Human Managed pursued such a stringent information security certification process, which is not typically expected for startups. However, its achievement undeniably proves its ardent practices and standards in information management, which should invariably reassure clients, partners, and employees of its unwavering commitment to security excellence.
