OTTAWA, ON — April 16th, 2012 — e-academy Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been certified to the rigorous ISO 27001:2005 Information Security Management System standard during their audit by QAS International.
“This is one of the best, if not the best IMSM 27001:2005 build support team I have been lucky enough to be involved in,” said Jeremy Evans, Lead Auditor at QAS International. “The interaction, pick up and commitment by the e-academy team was exceptional.”
“Software publishers who outsource to third-party, on-line ecommerce solutions are extremely cautious and concerned about the security of their intellectual property and the protection of end-user personally identifiable information; rightfully so, as mistakes are just too costly. I believe that e-academy is the first within our peer group to have achieved this internationally recognized certification,” indicated Richard White, Vice President and COO of e-academy. “While our customers have always recognized the high quality of our solutions, this third party, independent certification reinforces our commitment to quality, helps prospective software publishers in their selection process and offers peace of mind to end users with regards to the protection of their personally identifiable information.”
ISO 27001:2005 offers a comprehensive management system and a set of controls, based on best practices in information security, comprising of components such as confidentiality, integrity and availability.
