• 2 min read
AGI has achieved the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, the international standard outlining best practices for information security management. This certification recognizes that the company has management systems in place to control information security.
Achieved in record time
The company achieved its certification in August 2019 through Global Compliance Certification (GCC) after just 3 months of rigorous preparations and audits.
Dan Ebzery, Chief Experience Officer for AGI, agrees the certification demonstrates the company’s growing maturity. He also commends the team for their dedication to the company’s goal of excellence in industry standards.
This certification communicates that we are committed to the highest levels of data security and demonstrates our company’s transparency.
It is important that we safeguard the privacy of all parties
“It’s wonderful to work with a team of individuals who are committed to maintaining the security and integrity of our clients’ data”, said Ebzery, who leads AGI’s business development and relationship management arm. “The fact that we were awarded with ISO 27001 certification after just three months gives our clients the confidence to deliver us the rich and often sensitive data sets we need to produce work that ultimately helps their businesses”. Ebzery said.
Based in Sydney, AGI is a leading Australian owned third-party group insurance administrator. They partner with a range of corporate clients such as life companies and superannuation funds, managing their back-office administration so they can focus on what they do best – protecting the lives and assets of their clients. At the same time, insurance advisers and brokers with corporate clients work closely with AGI to obtain competitive group insurance cover (wholesale life, TPD and income protection).
“Our team helps significant numbers of corporate clients manage complex and sensitive client data. Group insurance involves sensitive data about insured individuals such as their incomes, occupations, medical history and even lifestyle choices. It is important that our systems are suitably robust and secure so we can safeguard the privacy of all parties.”, said Danilo Paje, AGI’s Chief Information Security Officer who led the company’s efforts toward certification.
