Sydney, Australia, 9 July 2019: ELMO Software Limited (ASX:ELO), the leading cloud HR and payroll specialist in Australia and New Zealand, has achieved ISO 27001:2013 Certification, with no non-conformances.
Servicing over 1,100 organisations across the region, security has always been a top priority for ELMO, ensuring sensitive HR and payroll data is always protected by best-of-breed systems, standardised processes and highly skilled professionals.
ISO 27001 is the international standard for Information Security. It specifies an Information Security Management System (ISMS) including policies, procedures, technical and physical controls to protect the confidentiality, availability and integrity of information.
With the increasing regulatory and operational requirements to ensure personal information is kept secure against sophisticated attacks, ELMO systems are built with a security-first mindset.
Secure engineering principles are applied to all of our applications including a strong separation of concerns, defence-in-depth design, silent running operation, a comprehensive access control framework, dependency risk management, unified encryption and full support for privacy principles. Such technical principals work together with our other security controls to provide appropriate protection to customer data held within our systems.
Achieving certification was an important way to demonstrate our commitment to security at all levels of the business, and that security is a core and evolving aspect of our business operations and services.
“HR and payroll teams are constantly handling sensitive information about their employees and need strong assurances that their data is safe, especially when moving to the cloud,” says Danny Lessem, CEO at ELMO. “While this has always been an area of focus and investment, we are proud to be taking this commitment a step further with our ISO certification.”
