Information security and GDPR
Exsecutivis are working actively with risk management as a cornerstone in our work with IT and information security. We are working with a risk-based approach which is also the principle of ISO/IEC 27001 INFORMATION SECURITY MANAGEMENT that is widely known and providing requirements for an information security management system.
Based on a risk assessment, it is assessed whether the security is at an acceptable level or whether more safety measures should be implemented.
We have assessed the risk of working with IBC to the score 5 and below (on a scale to 25). A low risk of 5 or less can immediately be accepted by Exsecutivis management without additional actions. An ISO 27001:2013 certification at IBC is a contributing cause for the low risk.
More then 90% of the work done by IBC is done on external data without any kind of personal information.
In the case transfer of personal data is needed to fulfill a contract (e.g. cleaning up CRM data) a transfer to a third country will only take place after an NDA (non disclosure agreement) has been signed and the registered person has given his express consent to the transfer.
