What Does ISO 27017 Guarantee?

• ISO/IEC 27017 is the main security standard developed for cloud service providers and users to make a safer cloud-based environment and reduce the risk of security problems.
• It is a part of the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards that provides best practice recommendations on information security management.
• The certification is maintained on a yearly basis with multiple security audits by an accredited certification body.


Security and where we keep the data is very important for our end customers.
This is all cash register data, revenues, etc., which is highly relevant for the accounting.
Keeping this data safe in Switzerland was a major factor when selecting a cloud provider although not the only one.

Certification Characteristics & Requirements

ISO/IEC 27017 provides guidelines for information security controls applicable to the use of cloud services. The official title of the standard is “Information technology — Security techniques — Code of practice for information security controls based on ISO/IEC 27002 for cloud services”.

 

The certification provides additional implementation guidance for 37 controls specified in ISO/IEC 27002 and 7 additional controls related to cloud services. The selection of appropriate information security controls and the application of the implementation guidance provided depend on a risk assessment.

 

The certification provides controls and implementation guidance for both cloud service customers who implement the controls and for cloud service providers which support the implementations of those controls.
