Mimecast Limited, a leading email and data security company, today announced that it has achieved certification to ISO 22301:2012, the international standard for business continuity management systems. Issued by Certification Europe™, an accredited certification body which provides International Organization for Standardization (ISO) management system certification and other management standards to organizations globally, the ISO 22301 standard stipulates the requirements for a management system to protect against, reduce the likelihood of and ensure a business recovers from disruptive incidents.
“Mimecast is committed to providing industry-leading continuity for email. Their focus on becoming ISO 22301 certified is indicative of their relentless pursuit of excellence as a vendor trusted by so many,” said Duane Stenberg, senior manager IS infrastructure, Mohawk Carpets.
The ISO 22301 standard provides a basis for understanding, developing, implementing and managing business continuity within organizations, and gives business managers confidence when dealing with stakeholders both within and outside their organizations. This international standard is designed to keep businesses operational during the most challenging and unexpected circumstances, such as natural disasters, IT failures, supply chain disruptions, government interventions, or other threats. The ISO 22301 certification is the most recent addition to Mimecast’s certifications, which also consists of ISO 27001:2013, Certification for Information Security Management Systems, and ISO 27018:2014, Certification for Protection of Personally Identifiable Information in a public cloud computing environment.
