How does EQS Group and Compliance COCKPIT comply with Information Security standards?
In addition to ensuring strict GDPR and legal compliance, as previously discussed, we have implemented multiple monitoring and prevention systems. Perhaps even more importantly, we have a dedicated, highly skilled security team. Our security experts come from diverse backgrounds and nationalities, and we proudly maintain a significant female presence in the team, which is not common in the industry.
Our security professionals undergo continuous training, certification, and actively participate in major security and hacking conferences. This means that we can detect security events within minutes and address them immediately, preventing them from escalating into breaches.
We value our information security staff and compensate them above market rates, providing them with the best tools and education. Furthermore, our company is known for being a great and desirable place to work, which attracts top talent. As a result, we have never needed external recruiters because our reputation is well known within the industry.
We also want to stay in touch with our customers on this topic and we have hired for a special role – starting in October of this year – specifically responsible for responding to information security requests raised by our customers and prospects.
I am extremely grateful to EQS executives who hold information security and customer information in the highest regard and have granted me the opportunity to establish such a comprehensive security program.
Can a small or even a larger company, not as committed to security, one that doesn’t hire trained incident responders and security professionals or conduct annual disaster recovery drills, make the same claims?
Companies should demand nothing less from their SaaS provider.
