Alliant National also recently completed the ISO 27701 audit, becoming the first and only underwriter to obtain this new data privacy certification.
ISO 27001:2013 is an information security standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards, and the International Electrotechnical Commission. Successfully completing this audit for a third time (it first completed the audit in 2015 and the again in 2018) reflects Alliant National’s ongoing commitment to excellence in meeting rigorous international standards in ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, availability and protection of non-public information. The recertification is valid through 2025, subject to achieving satisfactory annual surveillance audits.
The new ISO 27701:2019 is a framework for data privacy that builds on ISO 27001. It guides organizations on the policies and procedures required to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and other data privacy requirements. It is built into the Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) and is valid through 2024 – subject to achieving satisfactory annual surveillance audits.
“We are incredibly pleased and proud to have achieved these ISO (27001 and 27701) certifications, which further distinguish the unique capabilities of Alliant National,” said Tom Weyant, Alliant National Vice President of Risk Management. “These certifications provide confidence to lenders, state insurance departments and our other stakeholders in our ability to protect non-public, personally identifiable and confidential information. It speaks directly to our ongoing efforts to meet and exceed the highest standards when securing and protecting the sensitive information that we are entrusted with every day.”
To achieve these certifications, Alliant National had to complete formal, independent certification audits, which tested and validated more than 170 technical and process controls within the Information Security and Privacy Management System frameworks. The audits were conducted by an ISO-licensed and accredited firm, A-lign CPAs of Tampa, Florida.
