Business Optix achieves ISO 27001 Certification

London, UK - 22 August 2013 - Business Optix, a leading cloud based platform provider which enables users to document, share and improve business processes and methods, today announced that it has successfully attained the International Organisation for Standardisation Certification - ISO 27001, earning the prestigious accreditation after a series of independent, external assessments.

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard for information security management which demands that companies adhere to control disciplines spanning numerous areas, including risk management and security as well as business continuity management and compliance, to prevent and defend against potential data system vulnerabilities.

Peter McInally, Managing Director of Business Optix commented,
"We are proud to have gained this independent, third-party verified and accredited certification, demonstrating that Business Optix has the appropriate measures in place to ensure that the standard's stringent requirements are met.

The certification provides impartial evidence that Business Optix is following industry best practices as part of a corporate governance programme and has implemented a robust management framework regarding information security."

The approved information security management systems apply to the provision of platform-as-a-service (PAAS) solutions, including consultancy and training services and to cloud-enabled business process and operating models.

ISO 27001 requires that management:

  • Systematically examine the organisation's information security risks, taking account of the threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts;

  • Design and implement a coherent and comprehensive suite of information security controls and/or other forms of risk treatment (such as risk avoidance or risk transfer) to address those risks that are deemed unacceptable; and

  • Adopt an overarching management process to ensure that the information security controls continue to meet the organisation's information security needs on an ongoing basis.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
