ISO Certifications Simplified

Flo is the first period and ovulation tracker to achieve dual ISO 27001 and ISO 27701 Certifications

What are ISO standards and why are they important?

ISO standards in different areas, from pens to aircraft, are created to guarantee quality on a global level. Each of the standards was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) — an independent, nongovernmental, international organization that unites professionals in their areas to set the standards for the quality of goods or services.

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 (Information Security Management) is an international standard and benchmark that audits and assesses all companies’ policies, processes, and safeguards when it comes to data security. It  is the only auditable certification in the world that defines the requirements of an information security management system (ISMS), and it’s the foundation for the standards and rules we adhere to. It covers 14 domains of security to ensure all areas are adequately assessed.

What is ISO 27701?

ISO 27701 is an internationally recognized standard in privacy and data protection and serves as a formal independent seal of approval for Flo’s privacy program. It provides a framework for organizations to manage and demonstrate compliance with privacy laws and regulations and is designed to help organizations establish and maintain effective privacy management practices, ensuring the protection of personally identifiable information.

Is ISO 27001 and ISO 27701 mandatory?

No. But since we are aware of the intimate nature of the data you trust us with, we are committed to being proactive when it comes to the security of this information. Therefore, obtaining ISO 27001 certification is the highest priority for Flo. We also believe that our example will empower the whole industry to raise the bar when it comes to security principles.

What does this dual certification mean for me and my data?

Millions of women and people who menstruate around the world trust us with the most intimate information about their health and well-being. 

Achieving ISO 27001 certification means that Flo protects users’ data against information risks, such as cyberattacks, hacks, data leaks, and theft, at the highest standard possible.

Achieving ISO 27701 certification means that Flo has implemented robust measures to safeguard user data, ensuring compliance with GDPR and other relevant privacy regulations. Flo’s processes were tested and successfully audited in a variety of privacy domains, privacy-by-design and the fulfillment of user rights.
