Information Security from DCM Services ISO/IEC 27001 Standard


Security: Critical to Your Business, and to Ours

At DCM Services, we view information security as a critical business asset. Given our work with many of the largest credit grantors in the world, the safety and integrity of our clients' data is DCM Services' highest priority.

To deliver on our commitment of providing clients with an unmatched standard of information security, early in 2008, DCM Services received an ISO/IEC 27001 certification of our information security management system. By successfully achieving this certification, DCM Services joined the elite ranks of businesses that include the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the World Bank. In fact, as of March 22, 2011, DCM Services is one of only 99 companies – and the only deceased collection agency – in the United States to have achieved this distinction, according to the International Register of ISMS Certificates.

The ISO/IEC 27001 Standard

ISO/IEC 27001 represents the only auditable international standard to define the requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). To achieve certification, organizations are required to provide evidence that their ISMS has addressed information security risks in an objective, repeatable, measured and continually improving manner.

The rigorous standard was previously known as BS 7799-2 (a widely recognized British Standard) and was published as an international standard in October 2005 by the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission.
