KYOCERA Obtains First “ISMS Cloud Security Certification” in the Document Device Industry, the Latest Requirement for Cloud Services based on ISO/IEC 27017


ISMS Cloud Security CertificationJapan, November 28, 2017 – KYOCERA Document Solutions Inc. (President: Norihiko Ina), one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, has announced that it has obtained ISMS Cloud Security Certification, which is based on ISO/IEC 27017:2015, an international security standard for cloud services. This is the first such certification in the document device industry¹.

ISMS Cloud Security Certification is a third-party certification for cloud security, which is defined as an add-on specification to complement preparations against risks specific to cloud services. The prerequisite to this certification is to obtain ISO/IEC 27001 certification, requirements for a holistic information security management system (ISMS²) that protects important data from various threats and mitigates risks.

Nowadays, as cloud services are increasingly being used in a variety of industries, tighter security control and management is required in accordance with the latest international standards regarding data security and the handling of personal information. In certain sectors, when cloud services are introduced — particularly at medical and educational institutions, and at companies and public offices where important information is handled — compliance with security standards is necessary and thus the need for objective standards that certify the control system of each cloud service operator is growing.

KYOCERA is working to achieve comprehensive control of security for data created in customers’ document workflows. KYOCERA has obtained ISMS Cloud Security Certification ahead of other companies in the industry as part of its efforts to provide safe, secure and flexible cloud services to customers. The company will continue to enhance the quality of its document solution services, thereby contributing to the growth of its customers’ businesses.
