Why Having the Highest Security Standards Matters

Security Blog Hero

Have you ever gotten an alert from your credit card company about a questionable purchase? Quickly, the charge is denied, and you leave the rest up to the credit card company. It’s daunting, but you know everything will be okay with their help and a new card. Well, security is much more than that. 

Fifteen years ago, someone stole my identity – more than just a credit card number. Human error by a company admin and a simple phishing email led to my taxes being filed 13 times in one year. To this day, I am still fighting to keep my identity safe and secure. 

You must take this same approach – safety and security – with you in your organizations and the industries you serve. Think about the online communities that your members are a part of. Outside of engagement, collaboration, networking, mentorship and more, communities need to be empathetic, trustworthy, and safe. This is where Mobilize can help. 

This year, we partnered with A-LIGN, one of the top-rated auditing and certifications bodies in the United States for our 2022 International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Certifications. 

Mobilize has been certified since 2019, but this year was different because not all ISO certificates hold the same level of importance to an organization. In fact, the quality of an ISO certificate depends heavily on the certification body you partner with. Hence, our partnership with A-LIGN.

On April 8, 2022, Mobilize completed its ISO 27001 certification. This certification is an internationally recognized specification for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). Simply stated, it’s the framework to help organizations, of any size or any industry, protect their information in a systematic and cost-effective way, through the adoption of an Information Security Management System.

In addition to the ISO 27001 certification completion, we’re proud to announce the ISO 27017 and ISO 27018 controls to this certification.


Additionally, we’ve added the most recent ISO 27701 certification and passed our audit with flying colors. That’s right! Not a single non-conformity in our ISO processes was found.
