SAN FRANCISCO - July 13, 2021 - Today Deputy, the leading scheduling and timekeeping software company helping over 260,000 workplaces worldwide manage their workforce, announces the achievement of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). Intertek’s certification and audit process has validated Deputy’s business processes and technologies, ensuring that services provided to customers and partners are done so with a commitment to confidentiality, safety and trust.
The number of data breaches that occurred in companies worldwide multiplied exponentially last year as the workforce shifted to work remote policies. In the U.S. alone, there has been a 300% increase in reported cybercrimes affecting a wide scale of industries, from government agencies to healthcare and even meat producers. Small businesses are also at great risk of a security threat, two-thirds of SMBs globally had actually reported a digital attack in the preceding year. (76% for U.S. businesses).
“In today’s world, businesses of all sizes – especially small and medium-sized businesses – are at risk of digital attacks. That’s a very serious and scary thing to face as a business owner, particularly if you’re not familiar with security risks,” said Ashik Ahmed, CEO, and Co-Founder of Deputy. “That’s precisely why we pushed for ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification. Now, all Deputy customers, from large corporations to mom-and-pop shops, experience the highest standard of security from a culture of operational excellence built upon, first and foremost, trust.”
By completing the Stage 2 ISO 27001 audit - which concluded that Deputy’s information security safeguards met or exceeded ISO 27001 standards in each of 14 different areas or “controls” - Deputy is positioned to deliver gold-standard services for customers worldwide. Deputy’s ISO certification enables the business to successfully operate within regulated markets, opening doors for global customers of all sizes across a variety of industries, including government agencies, healthcare and more.
“Throughout Covid-19, Deputy has released product updates and features to help small businesses better manage and communicate with employees,” said Rob Mitchell, Director, Security at Deputy. “As a result, it was critical for the company to prioritize strengthening security systems. ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification is a major benchmark that reinforces Deputy’s position with enterprise customers and enables us to work with large global companies, like Compass Group, who require the world’s best information security standards.”
