author Edgar de Wit

Organizations must take measures to ensure that information security is in good order. We at XLReporting take information security, data protection, and privacy very seriously.

We understand that you are careful with your data. So are we. We are focused on protecting our servers, software, and your data. We follow all best industry practices, security comes first, and we test every change.

For that reason, we are GDPR compliant and ISO 27001:2022 certified.

This blog post will explore the significance of ISO 27001 certification and how it benefits businesses and their stakeholders.

Importance of ISO 27001 Certification

Understanding ISO 27001 Certification

ISO 27001 is the global standard for information security. By obtaining ISO 27001 certification, you demonstrate that you meet stringent information security requirements, and that you operate an ISMS (Information Security Management System).

It encompasses policies, procedures, and controls for effectively managing information security risks. Achieving ISO 27001 certification demonstrates an organization's commitment to safeguarding data and ensuring compliance with relevant laws and regulations.

Enhanced Security Measures

ISO 27001 requires organizations to identify and mitigate information security risks systematically. By implementing robust security controls, businesses can better protect against unauthorized access, data breaches, and other security incidents.

Increased Trust and Confidence

ISO 27001 certification instills trust and confidence in stakeholders, including customers, partners, and regulatory bodies. As an organization, you commit to maintaining information confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

Legal and Regulatory Compliance

ISO 27001 helps organizations align with legal and regulatory data protection and privacy requirements. Compliance with international standards can streamline regulatory audits and reduce the risk of non-compliance penalties.

Certified Service Providers

We only use ISO-certified and reputable suppliers and service providers such as Microsoft and Digital Ocean. As our customer, you can choose in which region you want your data to be hosted. We can guarantee 24/7 availability and 99.9% uptime by using multiple servers and continuous backups.

ISO 27001 certification can confer a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Many customers prioritize working with certified partners, recognizing the value of robust security practices in safeguarding their sensitive data.

In addition, we are continuously in contact with our suppliers, customers, and partners to stay well-informed about our work. We exchange advice and share our best practices and recommendations in information security. In this way, together, we ensure secure information security.

Continuous Improvement

We are well-connected with legal and IT security authorities and certification parties. This lets us stay informed of the best practices in software security and legal regulations and guidelines. We use Brand Compliance as our audit parter.

ISO 27001 promotes continual improvement by requiring regular risk assessments, audits, and reviews. Organizations can proactively identify improvements and adapt their security posture to address emerging threats.

Continuous improvement is in our DNA. Over the years, our function library has grown to 280 functions, we have over 40+ connectors, and our template library has over 100 templates.

Of course, we continue to improve and upgrade our application. We are always using the latest and most effective technologies.

Security First - all the time

Information security has been central to XLReporting since its start. We take information security, data protection, and privacy seriously and follow best practices and processes.

In addition, XLReporting offers an extensive package of security options that you can activate, such as Multi-Factor Authentication, enforcing same domain logins, and Single Sign-On.

At XLReporting, we understand the critical importance of data security to our customers and stakeholders.

We successfully demonstrate our commitment to information security best practices through meticulous planning, implementation, and evaluation.


By obtaining ISO 27001 certification, businesses can fortify their defences, inspire stakeholder trust, and uphold the highest data security standards.
