Privacy and Confidentiality: How Shipfix Goes Beyond the Rhetoric
In a world where data is becoming the cornerstone of modern enterprise, we at Shipfix recognise the heightened concerns around both confidentiality and privacy. While these terms are often used interchangeably, they serve distinct yet interconnected purposes that form the foundation of our operations.
Understanding the Difference Between Privacy and Confidentiality
Privacy relates to the handling of personal information—how it's accessed, viewed, and utilised. Confidentiality, on the other hand, is the safeguarding of critical client data, such as trading information and business transactions. At Shipfix, we consider both with equal weight. We understand that our clients rely on exclusive information for their commercial edge; therefore, we go above and beyond the applicable legal mandates to ensure this data remains secure.
We've underscored our commitment through rigorous certification. We're proud to be ISO 27001 certified, highlighting our focus on data security, and ISO 27701 certified, emphasising data privacy. These aren't mere symbols but evidence of our ongoing dedication to uphold the highest standards.
Our Foundational Pillars
- Integrity: Ensuring data is accurate and reliable.
- Availability: Making sure data is accessible when needed.
- Traceability: Keeping records of data processing.
- Confidentiality: Safeguarding information from unauthorised access.
- Privacy: Respecting and protecting personal data.
Beyond the Certifications
While annual audits and certifications offer some level of assurance, we go further by conducting quarterly penetration tests. Our proactive approach to security and privacy isn't just about mitigating risks; it's about continuously striving for excellence.
Making an Informed Decision
When choosing a partner, we encourage businesses to conduct thorough due diligence. GDPR conformity is not a certification; it's a minimum legal requirement. Don't be fooled by vendors displaying such logos as they are meaningless. We invite you to look beyond surface-level commitments and seek out partners that can provide verifiable evidence of their security measures.
In closing, Shipfix doesn't just talk about data security and privacy; we demonstrate it through actionable steps and are committed to a cycle of continual improvement. It's not just about the security measures we have in place, but also our unyielding commitment to advancing these measures to meet evolving challenges. Our business operations were designed to meet the highest industry standards, so you can rest assured that your data is in safe hands.
