“We are processing increasingly large amounts of customer data, and the security of this information is very important to us,” said Ian Long, Chief Information Security Officer, Opterus Inc. “Our employees all understand the benefits of embracing the ISO27001 concepts company-wide. This has enabled us to calculate our information security risks and to determine, implement and manage information security controls on an ongoing basis, keeping that risk in check.”
