NEW YORK (July 28, 2020) – Global Advertising and Brand Specialist Phoenix Marketing International (Phoenix MI) is proud to announce that they have completed the annual third party audit and continue to maintain the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, the only international standard for information security management.

ISO 27001 establishes information controls to manage people, processes, and technology. The standard covers the technological aspects of security, as well as corporate and physical security, and enforces regular risk assessments to help companies identify and treat security threats. ISO 27001 is accepted worldwide as an assurance that proper and continual measures have been taken to protect valuable company data.

“Amid these troubling times, providing our clients with the highest level of information security and privacy is one of our top priorities,” said Allen R. DeCotiis, Ph.D., Chairman, and CEO of Phoenix MI. “We understand that now, with so many of us working from our homes, maintaining this high standard of information security management is more important than ever”.

“We are proud to once again be one of the few market research companies to be recognized and maintain this global standard and will continue to work diligently to ensure we provide our clients with the highest standard of security and quality,” adds Scott Spry, Chief Operating Officer of Phoenix MI.

To achieve ISO certification, Phoenix MI engaged in an in-depth risk assessment, a comprehensive review of all information security policies and procedures, and internal audits. As a further step in the validation, the company’s information security management system was assessed by a third-party auditor who thoroughly reviewed Phoenix MI’s documentation, practices, and controls.

The certification was awarded by CIRQ, a subsidiary of the Insights Association, in collaboration with the Professional Evaluation and Certification Board (PECB), a global provider of audit and certification services.
