Genetec, a technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations and business intelligence solutions, has achieved ISO 27001 certification for the sixth consecutive year and obtained ISO 27017 certification for its information security management systems (ISMS).

According to the company, with ISO 27001 and 27017 certifications, Genetec customers can be confident they are working with an organization that has put stringent controls in place to manage sensitive data and mitigate cyber-threats when they’re using the company’s cloud solutions.

ISO 27017 focuses on the protection of the information in cloud services with a focus on major control areas including asset management, access control, physical security and compliance. With ISO 27017, an organization’s system and processes are subject to stringent security and privacy standards.

The company has also received the UL 2900-2-3 level 3 cybersecurity certification for the fourth year in a row for its Genetec Security Center Omnicast VMS. The company remains the only VMS vendor in the world to have achieved this certification.

Genetec has additionally passed the SOC 2 Type 2 audit to include its entire portfolio of cloud products and ISMS that govern them. This signifies that internal controls at Genetec are built on the best industry practices and aligned with SOC 2 Type 2 criteria and requirements.

“Certification with ISO and UL standards and SOC 2 Type 2 audits are essential elements of our comprehensive approach to cyber resilience. Customers can be sure we have the right policies and procedures in place to manage sensitive data when they use our cloud solutions or hybrid deployments,” said Mathieu Chevalier, Principal Security Architect, Genetec Inc.
