Neat has obtained the ISO 27001 certification of Information Security Management Systems thanks to its continuous commitment to the development and implementation of security measures related to the processing of information.

ISO 27001 promotes the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information; who complies with it is able to ensure the following fundamental aspects in the management of it: that only authorized persons can access the information; that the methods of processing information are accurate and complete; and that authorized users have access to it at any time.

According to the Spanish Association for Standardization and Certification (AENOR), the ISO 27001 standard contributes to fostering information protection activities in organizations, improving their image and generating trust for third parties.

Juan Ignacio Pérez Cabanillas, Head of Quality and Innovation at Neat, states that "ISO 27001 defines the requirements necessary to implement a secure information system and also sets the guidelines to maintain and improve it continuously". Perez Cabanillas also clarifies that when talking about an information system "not only do you want to refer to IT elements, since it also covers the set of technologies and tools for the treatment of one of the main assets of companies, the information , regardless of the format in which it is found, such as paper, hard disks, etc. "

Among the main beneficiaries of this certification are undoubtedly the service providers who use Neat's information management platforms since, thanks to the compliance and certification of this standard, they can offer services in the health and social sector even more calmly, since they have the endorsement of an internationally recognized standard aimed at safe treatment of information.

Along the same lines, Arturo Pérez Kramer, Chief Operating Officer at Neat, reiterated the importance of ensuring the security of the processing of personal data and confidential information for the development and growth of the socio-health technology sector. "We strongly support the implementation of information security management systems based on this standard," he said. Likewise, Pérez Kramer pointed out that "Neat is aware of the importance of complying not only with ISO 27001, but also with all those certifications that guarantee the safety and quality of its processes, products and services and its commitment to the environment".

Proof of this is the fact that in addition to ISO 27001 certification, Neat also has the following certifications: ISO 9001 for quality management systems and ISO 14001 for environmental management systems.
