SeamlessHR, Africa’s number one cloud-based HR platform has recently gained the ISO 27001:2013 certification for quality information security management systems.

The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is a globally recognised standard that requires organisations to build an information management system that keeps information safe and hedges against the risk of loss, damage, and other threats to information assets. 

The standard was published by the International Organization for Standardisation (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). It sets requirements for creating a comprehensive information security management system (ISMS), including requirements for HR and personnel processes, processing financial information, software security, securing office premises, and more.

Companies like SeamlessHR that achieve the certification affirm that the security of financial information, intellectual property, employee information, or data entrusted to the organisation from third parties are protected, successfully managed, and continually improved according to global best practices.

For our customers, the new certification means an even renewed confidence in the security of the information exchanged on our various platforms and in our ability to keep their valuable data safe.

Our CEO and cofounder, Dr Emmanuel Okeleji, explains that the certification is more proof of SeamlessHR’s willingness to consistently improve our products and service delivery according to global standards.

“SeamlessHR has always been NDPR and GDPR compliant, but we decided to go a step further in protecting internal and client data with this ISO certification. We went through a long, rigorous process of multiple audit stages across all company levels, and put in a lot of work to achieve ISO compliance. This is a major milestone for the company, and I’m very delighted to see that we are being awarded this well-deserved certification,” he says.

CTO and cofounder, Deji Lana adds that:

“At SeamlessHR, we are intensely aware of the trust our clients put in us when they choose to use any of our products, and we take that obligation very seriously.  Information security remains paramount in these times, and we will continue to take necessary measures to protect our data and that of our clients.”

SeamlessHR is a company that’s building Africa’s first enterprise grade cloud-based HR platform, with a product suite that includes a robust recruitment management system, core HR management system, performance and competency management system, payroll management system, and several other modules. 

SeamlessHR serves an impressive list of clients across Nigeria and Ghana, and is unrolling plans to expand across the African continent following a new seven-figure round of funding.
