We're incredibly proud to announce that Blend has earned the ISO 27001 certification, the gold standard for information security management.

The certification assures our customers that we have implemented robust security controls and processes to protect their sensitive data. It shows our commitment to maintaining a secure environment, minimising risks, and ensuring their information's confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

What is ISO 27001:2013?

ISO 27001:2013 is an internationally recognised standard for information security management systems (ISMS). It provides a solid framework to efficiently protect and handle sensitive information, covering aspects such as data confidentiality, integrity, and availability. By meeting the strict ISO requirements, we've demonstrated our capability to enhance customer data security and maintain best-in-class information security practices.

"The process of achieving ISO27001 came with a fair degree of introspection and acknowledgement that you can always do better at information security.

It was a very steep climb to certification with training and documentation playing a large part. We can already see the distance we've travelled though which is hugely satisfying, and once at the top, we can see that our hard work gives way to a more manageable momentum of observing risks and adjusting ourselves accordingly."

Technical Director, Blend

Why did we pursue the ISO 27001 certification?

Choosing to pursue the ISO 27001:2013 certification was a strategic move on our part. In today's fast-paced tech world, keeping our customers' information safe is a top priority. And as a trusted HubSpot partner, we handle sensitive data on a regular basis. That's why we made the conscious decision to invest in implementing the best possible methods for ensuring the security of our customers' information and data.

Implementing the ISO certification gives us a solid framework to evaluate risks, implement security controls, and continually enhance our information security management system. This certification is tangible proof of our dedication to safeguarding customer data from unauthorised access, breaches, and other security threats.

"The security of information is incredibly important to us and we recognised that there may be gaps that could expose us to the threats all businesses face. We have a duty to our clients and partners to take this matter seriously and hold ourselves to the highest standard possible.

In early 2022 we took the decision to make a considerable investment in this area and put ourselves through the ISO 27001 information security standard.

I am delighted to say that we've now been awarded the certification and we can continue with a great degree of confidence in the way we handle and protect the data we're entrusted with."
