At Rewatch, the safety and security of our customers’ data are paramount to everything we do. Our customers trust us with their most important company communications, and we are committed to delivering on their trust by meeting the highest security standards.

Today, we are excited to announce Rewatch has obtained our ISO 27001 and ISO 27011 certifications. These ISO certifications are internationally recognized standards for information security management and privacy information management.

Our ISO 27001 and ISO 27011 certifications are part of an enterprise security program that has been core to Rewatch’s mission from day one. Here’s what the new certifications mean for our customers:

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is the most widely recognized international standard for information security management. Obtaining an ISO 27001 certification requires implementing and maintaining a comprehensive information security management system (ISMS) that governs how our organization manages risks and protects employees’ and customers’ information.

Meeting the requirements for ISO 27001 ensures only authorized persons have access to the right information, only authorized persons can change the information, and the information is accessible to authorized persons whenever needed.

What is ISO 27701?

ISO 27701 is the international standard for privacy information management. An extension of ISO 27001, ISO 27001 specifies requirements for a privacy information management system (PIMS) that protects and manages the processing of personal data.

For our customers in the EU, ISO 27701 closely aligns with the requirements outlined in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Obtaining this certification provides assurance that Rewatch’s privacy program meets GDPR-aligned industry standards.

Achieving our ISO 27001 and 27701 certifications

We worked with an independent auditor, BSI America, who conducted a comprehensive assessment of our information security and privacy information management systems. We performed both internal and external audits to ensure our security and privacy practices, policies, procedures, and operations meet the rigorous standards for the certifications.

Building on your trust with more security improvements

Our new certifications are just one way we’re continuing to invest in a world-class security program for our customers. Along with continuously reviewing and assessing our internal practices, we’re dedicated to providing customers with the tools they need to safeguard their organization’s information, including support for SAML SSO, custom data retention policies, audit logs (coming soon), and more.

We value the trust our customers have put in us, and we will continue to build on it. For more information about our certifications, visit our security page.
