Everbridge Awarded Rigorous Privacy Certification for Its Critical Event Management (CEM) Solution that Helps Organizations Mitigate the Impact of COVID-19 and Other Crises
International CEM Leader Achieves ISO 27701 Compliance for Commitment to Globally Applicable Privacy Best Practices; Expands Industry-Leading Compliance Portfolio Amid Coronavirus Pandemic
BURLINGTON, Mass., July 23, 2020 — Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in Critical Event Management (CEM), today announced the company achieved the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 27701 certification for its compliance with globally applicable privacy best practices. The relatively new ISO/IEC certification, which launched in August 2019, comprises a meticulous certification process designed to help organizations protect personally identifiable information (PII) and other data.
According to media analysis Why every business should consider ISO 27701 compliance for their vendors (published in CSO), the new ISO standard provides a comprehensive set of controls for information security and the protection of personal information. The article goes on to state: “This new standard is the ‘icing on the cake’ for security compliance. The well-known ISO 27001 forms the foundation and the new ISO 27701 builds on that foundation to provide a comprehensive set of controls for information security and the protection of personal information.”
ISO 27701 compliance, the privacy extension to ISO 27001, serves as the latest example in a growing list of certifications and awards earned by Everbridge. In June 2020, Everbridge successfully renewed its Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Agency Authorization, representing the federal government’s most rigorous security and risk management review process for cloud products and services. Everbridge also currently holds SSAE 18/ISAE-3402 Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 and 3 Reports, German Government Cloud Computing Compliance Controls Catalog (C5) Report and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 Information Security Management System certifications.
“Everbridge remains committed to protecting our customers’ data and continuing to lead the global critical event management industry by example,” said Tracy Reinhold, Everbridge Chief Security Officer. “Certification for ISO 27701 showcases Everbridge’s market-leading compliance portfolio and our determination to set the highest of standards, especially as our technology helps organizations return to offices and other public spaces during the ongoing global pandemic.”
Everbridge recently introduced its COVID-19 Shield™ with Return to Work and Contact Tracing software for helping organizations manage the complex process of returning to the workplace. Everbridge further showcased this technology at last month’s “Coronavirus: the Road to Recovery” virtual leadership summit, bringing together the best minds across public and private sectors, including C-level speakers from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Cleveland Clinic, U.S. Army, Accenture, Biogen and more.
