FCA regulated FX and CFDs broker ActivTrades has announced that it has received ISO 27001 certification, relating to its information security management systems (ISMS).
ISO 27001 is an international industry standard governing how organisations establish, implement and monitor systems. A global symbol of reliability and trust, the certification recognises ActivTrades’ ability to proactively manage its ISMS control responsibilities across its five offices for the protection of its entire client base.
Paul Ramkumar, Chief Information Officer at ActivTrades said:
The company is a pioneer for client safety and security within the industry.
The certification not only highlights the successful implementation of advanced protocols and policies, but also demonstrates our ongoing commitment to protect our clients through dynamic and innovative processes. We are part of an exclusive group that hold the accreditation, which involves a stringent process.
We are very proud of our achievement and we will continue to look for new ways to further strengthen our systems for our clients.
ActivTrades reiterated its core value of client protection in 2013, when it was one of the first brokers to introduce negative balance protection. At the end of 2017, the company also doubled its fund insurance, covering client funds up to £1 million.
These safeguards have since been offered to Professional Account holders and to retail clients across ActivTrades’ offices: London, Milan, and Sofia, as well as in its most recent opening in Nassau as standard, where such insurance is not specifically required by the regulator.
