« Back to the news page

In response to its continual pursuit to provide secure, high-quality and trustworthy services to accredited registrars and the general public, EURid has been granted its ISO/IEC 27001 recertification following an audit by BSI, the British Standards Institution.

ISO/IEC 27001 provides requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continuously improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS) in the framework of general company risks. It includes people, processes and IT systems by applying a risk management process.

ISO/IEC 27001 is an internationally accepted and recognised standard for managing information security risks and is therefore in line with EURid’s main philosophy of establishing online trust.  In an interview with ECO International, Marc Van Wesemael, EURid’s General Manager, states that “The Internet is evolving towards a more trustworthy space”, adding that “developing a trustworthy online space is one of the main tasks that EURid has taken on”. To do this, EURid stands by the ISO/IEC 27001 standard and conducts many actions to enhance security and trust such as monitoring the validity of registrations and predicting whether or not a desired domain name will be used in an abusive situation.
