What is ISO/IEC 27001 compliance?

ISO/IEC 27001 is a security management standard that specifies security management best practices and comprehensive security controls following the ISO/IEC 27002 best practice guidance. The basis of this certification is the development and implementation of a rigorous security program, which includes the development and implementation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS) which defines how Deel perpetually manages security in a holistic, comprehensive manner.
