Korn Translations Obtained Double Certification: ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 9001
Korn Translations has been certified for its high standards of Quality and Information Security – ISO 27001 and ISO 9001
We are proud to share that our company has obtained the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, in full alignment with the LGPD – the Brazilian version of the GDPR.
Korn is the first translation company in Brazil to obtain this certification, which is generally recognized as the gold standard for any Information Security Management System.
ISO/IEC 27001 is a security standard that formally specifies an ISMS that is intended to bring information security under explicit management control. All staff and staff interaction with clients, as well as internal routines involving hardware, software and communications fall under strict ISO27001 Information Security Management. As a formal specification, ISO/IEC 27001 establishes requirements that define how to implement, monitor, maintain, and continually improve the management system. It also prescribes a set of best practices that include documentation requirements, divisions of responsibility, availability, access control, security, auditing, and corrective and preventive measures.
Benefits of the ISO 27001 certificate for translation services
For our clients, the benefit of this certification is knowing that their personal data and confidential information are being correctly processed, maintained and protected, and that the services we provide are totally in compliance with LGPD regulations.
Legal sanctions, including very large fines, will start being imposed in August this year. Extra care is therefore required, not just in processing personal data in-house but also in outsourcing work to local service providers.
Translation services fully compliant with the LGPD
This protection includes storing and processing the information on corporate computers and equipment, including our remote operations. All our equipment and software are monitored and can be tracked at any time. Our security policies are fully tested and well in place.
“We are positioning Korn as a leading firm in the Latin America language industry in terms of data protection, information security and quality”, says Celia Korn, CEO of Korn Translations.
In addition to this certification, Korn Translations has also been granted the NBR ISO 9001:15 certification for its Quality Management System. This quality certification provides further clear evidence of our high level of service quality in the interest of our clients.
Korn is now aiming at getting two additional certificates, in line with its policy for continuous improvement.
