Zinopy Announces ISO 27001 Certification


12 September 2018. Zinopy is pleased to announce that its Information Security Management System (ISMS) has been certified to the ISO27001:2013 standard. The certification covers infrastructure, data centres and services to customers.

UNE-ISO/IEC 27001 is a widely-adopted global security standard that sets out requirements and best practices for a systematic approach to managing company and customer information based on periodic risk assessments, appropriate to the changing threat landscape.

In order to achieve the certification, a company must show it has a systematic and ongoing approach to managing information security risks that affect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of company and customer information.

This certification reinforces Zinopy’s commitment to drive improvements in IT security combining best practice for all components of our services; people, process, and technology. Our objective is to provide transparency in our security controls and practices, in support of our valued customers.

ISO27001 is an international security standard and certified organisations are mandated to comply with defined principles and to develop policies to support these principles. Zinopy has demonstrated the following:

  • The systematic evaluation of information security risks, taking into account the impact of threats and vulnerabilities.
  • Design and implementation of a comprehensive suite of information security controls and other forms of risk management to address customer and architecture security risks.
  • An overarching management process to ensure that the information security controls are appropriate to Zinopy and customer needs on an ongoing basis.

“As a leading Irish Information Security practice, we recognise the importance of ensuring that our own processes and methods are able to reflect best practice and that they are demonstrable to customers and auditors alike”, said John Ryan, CEO, Zinopy. “Having operated in compliance with IS027001 for many years we felt it important that we achieve certification to the standard to demonstrate our commitment to customers”.
