ISO Certification

Wooclap is thrilled to announce that we have successfully obtained the ISO 27001:2022 certification! This significant milestone, achieved through several months of hard work on behalf of our Security Team, is a testament to our commitment to improving information security management. It marks the culmination of a year-long project that began in the spring of 2023.

"We are pleased to formalize the continuous improvement process that has long been in place at Wooclap. Just like for the GDPR, our security team is deeply committed to protecting your data whether you are a student, a teacher, or any other user of Wooclap, Wooflash, or Quiz Wizard." Lorenzo Risi, IT Security Officer at Wooclap.

What is ISO 27001?

For those unfamiliar with it, ISO 27001 is an international security standard that requires rigorous commitment to data protection management. Through our adherence to best practices and our continuous improvement across various security domains, Wooclap has not only met but exceeded these standards.

The journey to ISO 27001 certification

Our certification journey involved several key phases:

  1. Planning Phase: Identifying information security requirements and integrating necessary ISO controls into our systems.
  2. Implementation Phase: Developing and implementing comprehensive policies, procedures, and controls essential for protecting Wooclap’s information. It also included a comprehensive awareness campaign to educate all Wooclapers on security, privacy, and ISO standards.
  3. Evaluation Phase: An ongoing process that involved our compliance platform and advisors to ensure continuous alignment with ISO standards.
  4. Continuous Improvement Phase: Currently, post-ISO certification, we are maintaining and enhancing our adherence to ISO best practices to foster ongoing improvements.

Key areas of focus during ISO certification

  • Information Security Policies: Establishment of policies and procedures to safeguard sensitive information.
  • Human Resource Security: Ensuring that all employees are aware of and fulfill their security responsibilities.
  • Asset Management: Effective management of information assets throughout their lifecycle.
  • Access Control: Regulation of access to systems and data through defined user roles and privileges.
  • Vulnerability Management: Methods to identify, assess, and remediate vulnerabilities.
  • Development and Maintenance: Ensuring that our information systems are securely designed, developed, and maintained.
  • Supplier Relationships: Managing security-related risks with external suppliers and partners.
  • Incident Management: Robust procedures to effectively respond to security incidents.
  • Business Continuity Management: Developing and testing processes to ensure the continuity of critical business operations.
  • Compliance: Adherence to applicable laws, regulations, standards, and contractual obligations concerning information security.

Why we pursued ISO 27001 certification?

  • Because you have the highest security requirements! 🧑‍🏫
  • Because your data deserve the best security and confidentiality! 🔒
  • Because we want to be indestructible! 🛡️

What’s next?

Achieving the ISO 27001 certification marks just the beginning of our journey. Looking ahead, we are excited about the next steps, including a new version of our Security and Privacy Trust Center. This will be a comprehensive resource offering detailed information on our data protection measures and privacy practices. The Trust Center will also feature a FAQ section to address common inquiries and host documents pertinent to GDPR and security.

Stay tuned as we continue to enhance our security measures and ensure that your data is protected to the highest standards for years and years 🚀
