How ANACITY is Putting Data Security on Priority

With heightened concerns on information security, ensuring data protection has been mandated under the law. The aim is to protect all data from unauthorised access or loss. This includes the collection, handling, disclosure, and storage of personal data. Hence, businesses must move proactively to protect all information, particularly when it comes to personal data. 

ANACITY has been proactive in strengthening privacy through multiple measures, ensuring that sensitive user data is protected at every step. As a company that deals with personal information of users, safeguarding data is the topmost priority. This is critical in ensuring that every piece of data that flows through our systems or is stored on the platform is protected from any breach. 

ANACITY has now been awarded the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). It recognises that the company follows industry best practices and complies with thorough audits to ensure data privacy. ANACITY is now the only Community Management Software solution provider in the MENA region with this certification. 

Why ISO certification is important for us

It is important to note here that ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification is voluntary. It is awarded after a rigorous evaluation process that includes regular audits. It is proof that the data collected on the platform will remain confidential and secure. For the average person who may not have the expertise to independently evaluate cyber security, such certifications are critical in determining the safety of a digital product. 

The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification framework mandates tools to strengthen ANACITY platform on three key pillars of information safety, namely, technology, process, and people. It is proof of documentation and processes that have been established to protect data. As an internationally recognised certificate, it is based on the highest standards in the industry, showing our commitment to remain consistent and proactive in our security protocols. 

Why ISO certification is important for our partner communities

This certification is also critical for Owners Association Management (OAM) bodies that leverage our technology to improve their operational efficiency. To digitise end-to-end community operations, the platform collects and stores sensitive data like financial and personal information. As managing bodies, they are also responsible for ensuring data security of their users. An ISO certification assures OAMs that their data collection, processing, and storage is protected from any breach. This, in turn, can be critical in alleviating the concerns of the residents.  
Such certifications are key in ensuring our users of our compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. As ANACITY widens its ambit of products and services, the company will continue to further strengthen its security framework. Go to this link to know more about ANACITY’s privacy policy.
