overflex’s Information Security Management System (ISMS) has been certified as being compliant with the ISO27001 standard. After going through a process that involved several steps between identifying opportunities for improvement and coming up with ways to better protect our information, Coverflex has been issued an IQNET recognised certificate that demonstrates that the company has implemented and maintains a robust ISMS, covering the development, operation, and maintenance of Coverflex SaaS applications and products.

Compliance with this standard evidences our commitment to information security and our ability to protect the information assets of our customers, thus protecting their privacy.

What is ISO27001?

ISO 27001 refers to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard number 27001, which provides a framework for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continuously improving an ISMS within an organisation. The ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information, ensuring its confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

What does this mean for us and our customers?

This process is fundamental for us at Coverflex. Achieving ISO27001 certification shows that Coverflex is committed to information security and can be trusted with sensitive information, namely that of our customers. Additionally, this certification provides Coverflex with a framework for continuous improvement, ensuring that we remain up-to-date with the latest information security best practices. 

The project was led by Sandro Sandri, Legal and Compliance Manager at Coverflex, and Tiago Fernandes, our CTO and co-founder, and involved implementing all the necessary controls to meet the requirements of the certification.

“Implementing ISO27001 controls and achieving certification has been a transformative journey for Coverflex”, says Sandro. “It required dedication, attention to detail, and a shared commitment to top-notch information security. This milestone represents more than just a certification; it's a testament to our unwavering pursuit of excellence and our proactive approach to cyber risk. ISO27001 provides a solid foundation for our future, protecting customer trust and helping us stay ahead of emerging threats. Our certification sets a new industry standard and positions us as a trusted partner in the digital age”.
