ISO/IEC 27001

ISO/IEC 27001 is a compliance framework that establishes Information Security Management System (ISMS) standards to identify and manage information risks through a comprehensive set of company-wide processes and controls. Additionally, ISMS embodies principles of continuous improvement to keep abreast with changes in the threats landscape to address them proactively.

ISO/IEC 27001 requires that management:

  • Systematically examine the organization's information security risks, taking account of the threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts;
  • Design and implement a coherent and comprehensive suite of information security controls and/or other forms of risk treatment (such as risk avoidance or risk transfer) to address those risks that are deemed unacceptable; and
  • Adopt an overarching management process to ensure that the information security controls continue to meet the organization's information security needs on an ongoing basis.

These communications are considered part of the services that you (or your organization) have requested from us and you cannot opt out of these emails.

Business transfers

In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. If Cirata or substantially all of its assets were acquired (such as through a merger or acquisition), or in the unlikely event that Cirata goes out of business or enters bankruptcy or is dissolved or otherwise reorganized, customer information would be one of the assets that is transferred to or acquired by a third party. In any of these events, we consider that it would be in the legitimate interests of Cirata (or our creditors or transferee(s)) that the relevant customer information be transferred.

Onward transfers

These third parties may have access to your personal information only for purposes of performing these tasks on our behalf. Cirata obtains assurances from these third parties that they will safeguard personal information consistently with this Policy. Appropriate assurances are obtained under contract obligating the third party to provide at least the same level of protection as is required by the relevant Privacy Shield Framework Principles and the GDPR. These contracts will require the third party to notify Cirata if the third party determines that it cannot meet its contractual obligations regarding data use and data protection. Cirata complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EU and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.
