We are proud to announce that after a rigorous independent audit by BSI, Assemble has been awarded with the prestigious, internationally recognised information security standard certificate ISO 27001:2013.  

ISO 27001:2013 is the international standard for Information Security Management. It provides a best practice framework for companies to comply with confidentiality, integrity and legal compliance, providing confidence that the appropriate controls and policies are in place to safeguard data. In achieving this standard, Assemble has now further validated its internal processes, software as a service solutions and technical support as well as effectively demonstrated its capabilities to sufficiently protect customer data.  

In order to achieve the ISO 27001 certification, companies must be able to demonstrate a systematic approach to protecting sensitive information such as intellectual property, employee and customer data and any other information entrusted to it by third parties. 

Assemble’s CTO Bulent Yazici commented, “This is a wonderful and vitally important achievement. Assemble has always upheld the highest standards of internal compliance and security, so this recognition will formalise our ongoing commitment and give customers peace of mind that their data is in the best hands”.
