Lumesse, a global leader in integrated talent management solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been successful in winning ISO/IEC 27001 certification for its Lumesse TalentLink talent acquisition (e-recruitment) services. As a provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) integrated talent acquisition and talent management solutions for 1,700 of the world’s leading companies, security of data relating to job applicants and employees is an increasingly important priority for Lumesse customers in a connected world:
“We are seeing increased interest in mobile data access, especially in the light of our recent launch of the Lumesse Mobile* app for Android, Apple iOS and Blackberry, and our & lsquo;Apps for Everything’ philosophy,” said Matthew Parker, Lumesse CEO. “That puts even greater emphasis on having world-class information security controls, so the award of ISO/IEC 27001 certification to our global TalentLink services couldn’t be more timely. It also underlines our commitment to compliance and to the internationally accepted standards that major global customers increasingly demand of SaaS and cloud-based service providers.”
ISO/IEC 27001:2005 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented Information Security Management System within the context of the organisation's overall business risks. It specifies requirements for the implementation of security controls customised to the needs of individual organisations or parts thereof.
