MasterWord Awarded Certification for Exceptional Information Security Management

MasterWord Services, Inc., a prominent woman-owned language service provider, has become one of the first U.S.-based interpretation and translation companies to be awarded ISO 27001:2022 certification.

ISO 27001:2022 Certification

ISO 27001:2022 is the latest edition of the international standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). This achievement not only showcases MasterWord's commitment to implementing and maintaining robust information security controls but also places the company among the first in its sector to receive this most recently updated international certification.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, international organization that develops global, professional standards for consistency across industries and between nations. MasterWord successfully completed a third-party audit with "excellent results" as noted by Stela Tomova, President of TQCS International, the third-party certification body that conducted the audit. She adds, “[MasterWord’s] focus on utilizing ISO/IEC 27001:2022 as a tool for risk management, cyber-resilience and operational excellence is evident throughout every step of the process.”

MasterWord attaining ISO 27001:2022 certification underscores the company's unwavering dedication to ensuring the highest level of security for its clients' sensitive information. Additionally, the new certification represents a significant evolution from its predecessor, ISO 27001:2013. It has been meticulously designed to align more closely with contemporary cybersecurity organizational methods and the ever-evolving landscape of associated threats. This latest version of the standard integrates enhanced attributes to harmonize with globally recognized cybersecurity frameworks.

Ludmila Golovine, President and CEO of MasterWord, commented on this achievement, stating, "Securing ISO 27001:2022 certification is a significant milestone for MasterWord. It reflects our ongoing commitment to excellence in every aspect of our operations, especially in safeguarding our clients' information in this digital age.”
