BGL Corporate Solutions, Australia's leading provider of company compliance, self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) and investment portfolio management software, is proud to announce it has achieved ISO 27001 recertification for the 2022 year.
"This is a great achievement by the BGL team. I am extremely proud of everyone involved in the process," said Ron Lesh, BGL's Managing Director. "Achieving ISO 27001 recertification is essential to ensure we provide our clients with efficient, reliable and secure cloud solutions. Given the recent spate of high-profile data breaches, it's never been more important for Australian businesses to invest in cybersecurity."
BGL's cloud solutions CAS 360, Simple Fund 360, Simple Invest 360, BGL Smart Docs 360, BGL Bank Data Service and associated product support are ISO 27001 certified. ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that BGL has invested in the people, processes and technology to protect its client data. ISO 27001 is the auditable international standard that defines the requirements of an Information Security Management System. ISO 27001 is a mandatory certification for Australian Taxation Office (ATO) digital service providers.
To achieve ISO 27001 recertification, BGL had its security compliance validated by an external auditor in a rigorous process. BGL had to demonstrate that it has an effective Information Security Management Control System that has been appropriately implemented and is strictly adhered to by the Team.
"At BGL, we take data protection and security very seriously and are 100% committed to providing the highest levels of security and reliability", added Lesh. "BGL's cloud solutions are hosted with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Australia using multiple Availability Zones (AZs) and encryption. AWS is the most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform worldwide, with some of the world's best technology and security experts to protect millions of terabytes of data. AWS ensures our clients have the best data security available in the cloud."
In addition, BGL's cloud solutions maintain secure sockets layer (SSL) certificates. All data transmitted between AWS and web browsers is encrypted and authenticated, similar to online banking.
"We remain vigilant to security threats, continually investing in and adapting internal policies and procedures and educating our team on the ISO 27001 security standards," concluded Lesh.
