BOULDER, CO – October 12, 2022 – We are pleased to announce that Optera has received ISO 27001:2013 certification for our Information Security Management System (ISMS).

A-LIGN is an ISO / IEC 27001 certification body accredited by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) to perform ISMS 27001 certifications. Optera has implemented several security measures and countermeasures that protect it from unauthorized access or compromise and IT personnel were found to be conscientious and knowledgeable in best practices.

Compliance with this internationally recognized standard confirms that Optera’s security management program is comprehensive and follows leading practices. The scope of our ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification includes:
