Data security is high on the agenda for businesses of any size in this fast-moving digital age, and when it’s your business’ (or employees’) personal data that needs safeguarding, the urgency for best-practice security measures are paramount when selecting internal systems.

At PaySpace, we have always been convinced that when a client trusts us to fulfil their payroll and human capital management needs through our software, they are placing more trust in us than they might initially realise – and we commit to living up to that trust with every move we make as a business.

With hackers and cybercriminals becoming faster, savvier and more difficult to keep out with every passing year, maintaining compliance is necessarily at the forefront of doing good digital business. That’s why we are proud to announce that we have once again received the top certification for information security management systems – the ISO 27001. This certification guarantees that PaySpace conforms to an exacting framework of policies and procedures that includes legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organisation’s risk management system.

For PaySpace as an organisation, it was a proud moment for us when, in 2016, we became the first African payroll and cloud HR solutions provider to receive international ISO 27001 certification. But times change, and in the tech world, they change even faster.

Achieving this certification is no mean feat, considering that it covers no less than 14 specific control objectives:

  • Information Security Policies
  • Organisation of Information Security
  • Human Resources Security
  • Asset Management
  • Access Control
  • Cryptography
  • Physical and Environmental Security
  • Operations Security
  • Communications Security
  • Systems acquisition, development and maintenance
  • Supplier Relationships
  • Information Security Incident Management
  • Information Security aspects of Business Continuity Management
  • Compliance

This latest ISO 27001 certification for PaySpace builds on our long-standing compliance with the standards set out by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) with a further certification from TÜV NORD, long renowned as a world leader in consulting, auditing, verification and validation services.

With this ongoing commitment to excellence, PaySpace clients – both current and future – can therefore rest assured that they are receiving service that is as secure and compliant as any to be found worldwide.
