ISO 27001 certification affirms that Medeco’s Salem, Va. operation adheres to internationally recognised standards for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) in the production and sale of the Intelligent Key (electronic locking) systems XT and CLIQ.
ISO 27001 certification provides requirements for setting up and maintaining an ISMS in order to keep information assets secure. Medeco’s ISMS is comprehensive, including internal information technology (IT) systems, technical and process controls, policies, procedures, data (Personally Identifiable Information and Intellectual Property) and personnel related to their Intelligent Key product lines.

“Continuing to adhere to and maintain ISO 27001 certification is an extremely high priority at Medeco,” said General Manager Joseph Kingma. “The recertification validates Medeco’s ISMS that was already in place, and has improved upon the framework of policies and procedures that include all legal, physical and technical controls involved in our information security management processes.”
ISO 27001 certification assures customers that information being stored on servers or cloud-based systems is handled in a secure manner, minimising the risk of the exploitation and takeover of data. Information assets can include financial information, intellectual property, employee information and details, and any information supplied by third parties, including vendors and end users.
