Why should you look for a Managed Cloud Service Provider with an ISAE 3000 certification?
If you are considering outsourcing IT operations, the GDPR recommends that you work with partners that are certified data processors. A provider that has been audited by third-party and independent IT auditor is your guarantee that it fulfils the high requirements that you expect from a modern and secure IT provider.
The statement of assurance is your proof that the provider’s systems of control are reviewed annually – a seal of approval of the self-control of quality, operations, security, preparedness, competencies and processes.
It provides your opportunity to receive tangible evidence that the provider keeps up with the development of regulations. The legislation is not static and keeps evolving as the market demands rise. The same goes for auditors’ statements which means that you can control that your provider follows and adheres to legislation.
