Reston, VA, November 23, 2015

Quality certification demonstrates CALNET’s dedication to delivering customer value.

CALNET, Inc. announced today that it has received the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 27001:2013 Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) certification.

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organization. It also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization. An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. It includes people, processes and IT systems by applying a risk management process. The information security management system preserves the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information by applying a risk management process and gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed.

The appraisal was led by Concept QA Labs and the record of the CALNET certification can be verified by checking the Directory of Certificated Organizations maintained by the Accreditation Commission for Conformity Assessment Bodies (ACCAB).

CALNET wants to deliver products and services better, faster, and cheaper but, at the same time, maintain the high-level security standards required to provide discipline to our processes while maintaining the integrity of our data and the data of our customers and clients. As companies become more fluid meeting customer expectations, process, procedures and standards must be implemented to ensure the highest integrity in fulfilling these services. At CALNET, we continually invest in our ability to meet customer expectations by applying the rigor required to instill confidence that our management systems are secure and reliable.
