SGS Certifies ANSI to ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security

June 14, 2022

SGS has certified the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to ISO/IEC 27001 – Information Security Management Systems (ISMS).

Successful certification demonstrates ANSI’s strong commitment to information security management and cyber risk prevention.

A Rising Threat

With ransomware attacks rising more than 50 percent in 2021 and signs of even greater cyber risk on the horizon, effective, enterprise-wide cybersecurity must be a priority for every organization.

“Choosing SGS to perform our ISO/IEC 27001 audit was an important decision in our robust digital transformation strategy to further enhance information security, resiliency and business continuity,” said Mike Petosa, VP of IT at ANSI.

"They Could Have Chosen Anyone"

"ANSI could have chosen anyone, and we worked determinedly to exceed their expectations, highlighting our innovative people and services," said Jeffrey McDonald, EVP of Knowledge Solutions at SGS. "We thank ANSI for placing their faith in us and we were delighted to perform the audit before presenting their certificate."

He added: "We are recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity, and this work highlights our professional approach, high standards and global information security credentials."

"Very Satisfied" Across the Board

ANSI rated SGS's customer service as "Very Satisfied" across the board, from response time, professionalism and communication to organization, punctuality and technical knowledge.

"Certification to ISO/IEC 27001 was an intensive process for a reason – because it's the gold standard in information security protection," said S. Joe Bhatia, ANSI President and CEO. "ANSI's members, partners and customers can be assured that our commitment to information security is true and tested. With this certification in place, ANSI is working to future-proof our business against ever-increasing security threats while increasing our ability to grow and prosper in the rapidly changing business environment."

Why ISO/IEC 27001 certification?

ISO/IEC 27001 certification highlights the integrity of an organization's data and systems, and its commitment to information security.

The standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an ISMS for safety and security. It also includes requirements for assessing and treating information security risks, tailored to the organization.
