Cartus Earns Cybertrust Certification

Cartus has obtained Cybertrust Security Management Program (SMP) Enterprise Certification for the fourth year in a row

HERNDON, Va. -- Cybertrust®, the global information security specialist, today announced that Cartus has obtained Cybertrust Security Management Program (SMP) Enterprise Certification for the fourth year in a row. Cartus, the premier provider of global mobility management and workforce development solutions serving the corporate, government and affinity markets, is one of a select group of companies in the world to achieve the industry’s most mature information security certification. The SMP approach allows Cartus to more effectively gain visibility into and control over its security infrastructure. Additionally, this certification assures customers and partners that Cartus is reducing risk and enhancing overall security in a consistent, programmatic fashion.

The SMP Enterprise Certification arms Cartus with a certification and risk reduction program that addresses the company’s entire information security program, including network and system analysis, as well as physical and policy inspection. Specifically, the certification shows that Cartus has documented and implemented information security policies and standards; put into practice effective security controls; mitigated high-severity vulnerabilities; implemented email filtering; and updated anti-virus programs.

“The biggest driver for the Cybertrust SMP enterprise certification is knowing that we have independent third-party attestation from industry experts who vigilantly examine and certify that our processes, policies, procedures and technologies accurately reflect our Security Promise,” said Jack Doyle, senior vice president, information technology, Cartus. “Our Security Promise is our utmost commitment to information security and maintaining confidentiality of our clients’ data."

“Displaying the SMP enterprise seal demonstrates that Cartus has earned the most mature and respected security certification in the industry,” said Malcolm Palmer, director, product management, Cybertrust. “Cartus serves as an excellent example for other companies that are looking to take a proactive, systematic approach to measuring and validating their security program. By acting as an independent, third-party expert for customers like Cartus, Cybertrust helps businesses take control and drive added value from their security programs.”

Doyle added, “As a global company, ensuring that we are proactively managing information security across our global locations is paramount. Leveraging our SMP certification allows us to quickly take the pulse of sites around the world. In addition to helping Cartus manage its information security program, the SMP certification also serves as a watermark of acceptance among our clients and partners that we are highly committed to information security and have completed our due diligence.”

SMP is a robust, detailed and programmatic security and risk reduction program. The program helps organizations improve their overall security posture through the identification of critical assets; assessment and prioritization of threats; and mitigation of risks. The ongoing, systematic approach allows business to more easily facilitate regulatory compliance. Additionally, SMP helps to protect critical business systems from malicious attacks and other threats.
