Is it too much to say that we live in an insecure world? And when we say the world, we mean both the real and cyber worlds. We especially mean the digital world where most of our business activities take place. This just couldn’t be more true when it comes to the document proofing process. You’re extremely vulnerable when proofing your documents.
Because you’re maybe doing it the old, and definitely outdated, email way. From a security point of view, this is a living nightmare. All of your files are scattered around while you’re desperately trying to keep track of the thousands of emails used for document proofing. Can you make sure that all of these emails have the desirable security options? Can you make sure that private email addresses aren’t being used? Of course you can’t. And this is exactly what the cyber predators and hackers are expecting to find. Is there a solution?

An Information Security Management System is a systematic and proactive approach to effectively manage any risks to the security of the company’s confidential information.
The system promotes efficient management of sensitive corporate information, identifying vulnerabilities to ensure that the information is adequately protected against potential threats.
It encompasses premises security, people, process, and IT systems, and this reassures you that WebProof maintains its own integrity in regards to the safeguarding of its data.

The ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards helps organizations keep information assets secure. Using this family of standards will help your organ- ization manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details, or information entrusted to you by third parties. ISO/IEC 27001 is the best-known standard in the family, providing requirements for an information security management system (ISMS).
An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. It includes people, processes, and IT systems by applying a risk management process. It can help small, medium, and large businesses in any sector keep information assets secure.
You can preview the freely available sections of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 on Online Browsing Platform. To purchase the standard, please visit the ISO Store.
Like other ISO management system standards, certification to ISO/IEC 27001 is possible but not obligatory. Some organizations choose to implement the standard to benefit from the best practice that it contains while others decide they also want to become certified to reassure customers and clients that its recommendations have been followed. ISO does not perform certification.

Years back, WebProof moved more than 100 million files from own server park to the Amazon Cloud, not based on economic savings but, on the contrary, based on higher security in all aspects including load balance and clustering. WebProof uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) as our Cloud center because it's the world's most secure hosting partner. Because it is based in Ireland, this hosting center follows the EU data protection requirements as well. Additionally, AWS is ISO 27001 Information Security Management-certified.
ISO 27001 is a security management standard that specifies security management best practices and comprehensive security controls following the ISO 27001 best practice guidance. The basis of this certification is the development and implementation of a rigorous security program, which includes the development and implementation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS), which defines how AWS perpetually manages security in a holistic, comprehensive manner. This widely-recognized international security standard specifies that entities:
AWS’ implementation of and alignment with ISO 27001, 27017, and 27018 demonstrates a commitment to information security at every level of the organization. AWS is assessed by an independent third-party auditor to validate alignment with the ISO 27001 standard. Compliance with these internationally-recognized standards and codes of practice is evidence that the AWS security program is comprehensive and in accordance with industry- leading best practices.

Security can roughly be divided into; Cloud hosting center security; application security; user security; development/debug and production security; development environment; and WebProof organization security. All areas equally important, nothing is stronger than its weakest link. Therefore, ISO 27001 is important because it is a secure way to keep the Information Security Information up to date. Everybody in our organization is involved in the ISO 27001 Information Management System. Both, the WebProof software and our organization are working in accordance with the LEAN theory, where ISO 27001 is a natural extension based on two of the rules – systematic follow-up, improve, follow-up, improve, etc. We will not document all the details involved to secure your data, but here are some of the answers to the typical FAQ we meet (see next page).
