Comtech achieves key ISO 27001 information security re-certification for location technologies
Comtech Telecommunications Corp., a world leader in secure and highly reliable location, public safety, navigation, and communication technologies, has announced its Location Technologies group, a division of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, has obtained re-certification of its ISO 27001 designation. The ISO 27001 Information Security Standard is widely recognized as the blue-chip standard for protection of individual, customer and company private and sensitive information.
To meet ISO standards, a company must show it has a systematic and ongoing approach to managing sensitive company and customer information. Comtech has implemented the prescribed ISO standards to ensure a secure environment and work processes that enable it to protect its intellectual property and assets, meet contractual security obligations and establish a robust risk assessment/treatment framework, which are critical to supporting its Location Technologies customers.
The certification is a key indicator of Comtech’s program to protect vital customer data from a wide range of cyber threats and vulnerabilities that can lead to data loss. It provides third-party verification that the company’s information security management system conforms to a standard that helps protect the integrity of customers’ information assets. ISO 27001 certification also gives Comtech, its customers, shareholders and partners added confidence that Comtech subscribes to the best information security practices in the industry.
“Achieving this re-certification means our customers have assurance our services and products operate to the highest quality standards. We are dedicated to constant improvement and development in location technologies. This re-certification demonstrates Comtech’s commitment to ensuring quality, security and the best possible service to our clients,” said Fred Kornberg, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
