Software industry certification

In this day and age, when most organisations face an array of cyber vulnerabilities, such as phishing attacks, data losses, ransomware, and others, it’s more important than ever that software companies have a clear framework in place through which their processes, procedures, policies, and security systems are constantly monitored and improved.

By becoming ISO certified and complying with the most rigorous international standards, you are showing your clients and stakeholders that you care about information security and customer satisfaction and want to make sure that your products and services are developed to the highest quality and safety possible.

If you are a software development company looking to get your ISO certification, then Citation Certification can help. As a JAS-ANZ accredited Certification Body, we have the expertise to analyse your business and support your continual improvement.


What ISO certification does a Software Developer need?

Some of the most important ISO certifications a software development company needs to obtain include:


ISO 27001 (Information Security)

ISO 27001, also known as “ISO/IEC 27001”, is part of a set of international standards focused on information security. Its goal is to provide software development organisations with a clear framework for safely handling, storing, and protecting valuable information. This is especially important for software companies as they usually handle sensitive data and need to prove to their clients that their information is safe with them.


ISO 9001 (Quality)

ISO 9001:2015 is focused on quality assurance, meaning that the companies that comply with ISO 9000 standard and its counterparts have demonstrated their ability to consistently deliver quality products and services that meet customers’ needs and exceed their expectations. ISO 9001 requirements focus on a few key areas, such as the context of the organisation, leadership, planning, support, operation, performance evaluation, and improvement. To get your ISO 9001 certificate, you need to address these key areas in your business and have a clear framework for each.
