Why Penrod Obtained ISO 27001 Certification

It's more than just a certificate.

In the healthcare and life sciences industry, where patient data, intellectual property, and financial information are stored and transferred electronically, data security is paramount.

The Healthcare and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) reports that the first half of 2023 recorded a staggering 295 breaches within the healthcare sector alone, which affected over 39 million individuals. These numbers aren't just statistics; they're a stark reminder of the vulnerability that persists in the digital realm.

At Penrod, we understand the critical importance of safeguarding our client’s information, which is why we proudly announce our recent achievement: ISO 27001 Certification.

What is ISO 27001 Certification

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized standard that outlines the best practices for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS). This framework ensures that organizations effectively manage and protect their information assets.

Achieving ISO 27001 certification signifies that a company has met rigorous requirements for information security governance, risk management, and compliance.

Unveiling the Power of ISO 27001 Certification

ISO 27001 is more than just a certificate. It reinforces our commitment to being your trusted partner in the digital transformation journey. Here’s how:

Safeguarding What Matters: Protection of Your Data

By obtaining ISO 27001 certification, Penrod solidifies its dedication to safeguarding data. We align our framework and solutions to your security systems, even those running on scalable cloud implementations. The end game is to ensure your information remains resilient under the looming cloud of cyber insecurity.

A Centrally Managed Fortress of Security

ISO 27001 certification supports the creation of a robust, centrally managed security framework. This framework unites various security measures under one strategic umbrella, delivering comprehensive protection for your digital assets.

A unified security approach:

  • Streamlines security processes, eliminating redundancies and inefficiencies.
  • Enhances the detection of threats, enabling us to identify and respond swiftly to evolving threats.
  • Aligns with regulatory requirements, allowing you to navigate compliance challenges.

A centralized security framework ensures that every facet of your data’s journey is meticulously guarded. Your data isn’t scattered; it’s fortified within a structured architecture meticulously designed to withstand cyber onslaughts.

Empowering Our Team to Counter Threats

It’s not just the systems and protocols that transform; our team does, too. With this certification, our experts are equipped with the tools and skills to identify and fight malicious actors.

Through specialized training and awareness programs, our team members are better prepared to recognize and counteract potential breaches on customer data platforms and more. This proactive approach protects our clients, further contributing to the overall resilience of the healthcare ecosystem.

Beyond Compliance: Elevating Ongoing Security Practices

Static security measures are no longer viable in an ever-evolving cyberspace. Cybercriminals constantly adapt, so our security strategy must stay ahead.

This certification empowers us to engage in a dynamic process of risk assessment, threat detection, and response refinement. By staying proactive and vigilant, we ensure our clients’ data remains secure against emerging threats. 

Aligning Security Strategy with Your Business Goals

We understand that security is not a standalone concern; it’s intertwined with your overall success. By aligning our security strategies to the ISO 27001 protocol, we are able to tailor solutions to support your growth and operational goals.    

Whether you’re driving innovation, expanding your market reach, or enhancing customer experiences, your growth is our growth, and your security is our mission.
