OMT awarded ISO/IEC 27001 accreditation

The OMT Group, which comprises Evalex Talent Management, Odyssey Talent Management, Elea and Via, has been awarded ISO/IEC 27001 accreditation.

ISO/IEC 27001:2022 is a globally recognised standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS), providing a systematic approach to identifying, assessing, and managing information security risks. By implementing the standard, organisations can better protect their sensitive information and assets from a variety of threats.

“ISO/IEC 27001 is an internationally accepted standard that provides a common language and framework for information security management,” says OMT Group CEO Dr Pieter Bronkhorst. “Achieving conformity with this standard demonstrates the commitment that we have always had to global best practices at the OMT Group.

“The achievement of this standard demonstrates that we have sufficient measures in place to safeguard our information, as well as that of our clients and candidates.”

Bronkhorst says customers and stakeholders increasingly prioritise working with organisations that demonstrate a commitment to securing their information.

“We are certain that our ISO/IEC 27001 certification will enhance our customers’ confidence in our services by assuring them that we take information security incredibly seriously.”

The standard encourages a holistic approach to information security, addressing not only technical aspects, but also people and processes. It requires organisations to regularly assess and improve their information security management system, ensuring adaptability to evolving threats and technologies.

“As one of the first talent assessment companies in Africa to hold ISO/IEC 27001 certification, the accreditation distinguishes us as leaders in information security practices in the Talent Management market,” says Bronkhorst.

ISO/IEC 27001 is a valuable framework for organisations seeking to establish a robust information security management system, manage risks effectively and demonstrate a commitment to protecting the sensitive information of their stakeholders.
