Paternoster achieves ISO 27001 Certification with Email Labelling
Ottawa, ON —February 2, 2010 — Paternoster, a leading UK pensions and financial services organization, achieved ISO 27001 certification, with TITUS Message Classification (TMC) and Document Classification (TDC) solutions playing a key role in this accomplishment. The organization uses TMC and TDC to protectively mark sensitive personal information including names, phone numbers addresses, pension amounts and national insurance (NI) numbers for millions of people and prevent inadvertent data loss.
In addition to preventing a data breach, Paternoster was focused on becoming the first insurance company in the world to be fully ISO certified. To achieve ISO 27001 certification, an Information Security Management System standard, Paternoster required a mechanism to ensure information management was under explicit control. Using the combination of TMC and TDC, which integrate tightly with the existing Microsoft infrastructure, Paternoster was able to easily apply data marking and protection as part of their overall security and compliance strategy.
"We are the first insurance company in the world to achieve ISO certification, and this is a major differentiator for us, as our customers have confidence that information is handled with the highest levels of care," said Elliot MacInnes, IT Manager, Paternoster. “TITUS solutions has helped with achieving this certification, to prevent inadvertent data loss, and help raise awareness to the sensitivity of information."
Paternoster has realized multiple benefits from the use of TITUS including ease of use and management as well as low total cost of ownership. Employees are able to share email and documents in a way that is familiar and works within existing workflows. This ensures every email is protectively marked before it is sent. Users are also warned and prevented from accidently sending a confidential email outside the organization, while the classification metadata included with the email helps prevent information from getting into the wrong hands.
