How Electron were able to govern and manage information security risks within their business
Electron are currently building a platform for trading, and one of the many challenges they face is ensuring that their data privacy protections and processes meet the highest standards. Electron required ISO 27001 certification, an internationally recognised framework for information security standards.
As a software company, their platform hosts a vast amount of data. Making sure that the correct processes and procedures are in place is paramount for them. Whilst ISO 27001 is not a mandatory certification in their industry, it does support GDPR compliance. It also shows Electron are working proactively to protect their data and information. By gaining this certification, they are showing both current clients and prospective clients that they are committed to safeguarding their data.
“From the start, DigitalXRAID provided technical guidance and consultancy. Whenever we had a question, we could talk to Kerry and David and get answers quickly. It made our lives considerably easier knowing that we could rely on DigitalXRAID to assess our challenges and provide solutions in a way we could understand.”
Electron is a London-based EnTech company, designing and building the digital infrastructure that will enable the transition to cheaper, cleaner power. They are developing new markets for energy, flexibility and data services, alongside the underlying platforms on which these markets coexist and coordinate.
Kerry and David from DigitalXRAID understood our requirements and worked in partnership with us to find the perfect solution. They conducted extensive Gap Analysis work to identify exactly what our company needed to do to achieve ISO 27001.
Through meaningful communication with us, DigitalXRAID were able to quickly outline a comprehensive plan for ISO 27001 certification, which includes regular on-site meetings with us to support us on our ISO 27001 journey.
Q&A with Ilaria at Electron:
We were referred to DigitalXRAID, and from the immediate outset they gave us confidence in their ability to provide the technical help we needed. They explained the process thoroughly and clearly showed their knowledge.
Although it is not a compliance requirement for us to have ISO 27001, we wanted to make sure we were doing everything to safeguard our data and customer data. Having ISO 27001 will also give us another tool in our belt when acquiring new customers.
