Our society is becoming increasingly dependent on the internet. This heightens the security requirements for all actors that take part in delivering our digital foundation. The domain name system is a fundamental function, necessary for the internet infrastructure to work. For Norid as a registry it is therefore very important to ensure the security and the availability of the registry service and the domain name system for the Norwegian top level domain names.
In June we achieved a ISO 27001 certification (PDF) which covers all of our services, systems, locations and employees. ISO 27001 is an international recognized standard which describes best practice for how companies protect their information values, address risk management and continually improve the work with information security.
– We are very proud to have passed the certification. It is a result of our systematic and continuous work with information security, something which involves all employees in the organisation, says Hilde Thunem, managing director in Norid.
