Congratulations to United Guaranty's Information Technology (IT) Team for achieving ISO/IEC 27001 certification—a globally recognized standard for managing information security risk.

We're proud of all the IT Team members who helped us join the select group of companies worldwide that have successfully completed the ISO/IEC 27001 certification process, which entails multiple on-site reviews and exhaustive audits.

ISO/IEC 27001 certification assures our customers that United Guaranty is a responsible partner at a time when the vulnerabilities of technology systems are a paramount concern for companies everywhere.

Our ISO/IEC 27001 certification provides better assurance that United Guaranty meets a formalized set of globally recognized standards designed to protect data.

British Standards Institution (BSI) audited our operations to determine United Guaranty has identified security risks and put mandatory ISO/IEC 27001 controls in place to reduce or effectively manage those risks—providing confidence that confidential data is protected.

Globally, security professionals recognize ISO/IEC 27001 certification as validation the certified company employs best practices for information security management.

United Guaranty earned IS Certificate Number 632667, which is valid for three years. We will continue to undergo post-certification reviews and recertification audits to ensure the company remains aligned to best practices while continuing to adapt to meet the latest security risks.
