Reza Herdaning, Cyber Security Manager at Evermos stated, “Data security is a paramount concern in the digital era. Through ISO 27001, we guarantee that Evermos’ information security management system aligns with global standards, demonstrating our commitment to maintaining the confidentiality of user data.”

“Evermos users have varying levels of digital literacy. Many of them are housewives and underserved communities. We want anyone using our platform to feel secure during their interactions on Evermos,” explained Iqbal Muslimin, Co-founder and Chief of Sustainability at Evermos. “Furthermore, the implementation of data security is a significant effort within the framework of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) as part of the company’s commitment to sustainability.”

Despite the typical timeframe of six months for ISO 27001 certification, Evermos accomplished this in just four months, starting from the initial planning stages to the audit process conducted by the national certification organization.

ISO 27001 outlines three key principles in managing the Information Security Management System (ISMS), focusing on:

  • Confidentiality: Only authorized individuals have the right to access information.
  • Integrity: Only authorized individuals can modify information.
  • Availability: Information must be accessible to authorized individuals whenever needed.

In alignment with these principles, several key aspects of information security controls emphasized by ISO 27001 are integrated across Evermos. The implementation involves cross-functional teams throughout the organization, covering:

  • Physical Control: Ensuring the physical security of information assets.
  • Organizational Control: Establishing organizational processes and policies for managing information security.
  • People Control: Implementing measures to ensure employees understand and comply with security policies.
  • Technological Control: Deploying technology solutions to protect information assets.

This achievement solidifies Evermos as a trusted digital platform, showcasing the company’s proactive stance in safeguarding information in the ever-evolving digital landscape.
