Aon eSolutions receives independent certification of ISO 27001:2005 compliance
Certification demonstrates Aon eSolutions’ continuing commitment to robust security and regulatory frameworks and standards in servicing its growing global customer base

Chicago, March 5, 2014 -- Aon eSolutions, the technology-solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), announced today that it has received third-party ISO 27001:2005 certification for its RIScloud® branded customer data centers and for Aon eSolutions offices in the United States and Europe. This certification verifies that the ISO information security standards are an integrated component of all company business processes and technology systems. Aon eSolutions’ compliance with ISO 27001:2005 was certified by BSI Group, an independent provider of management systems assessment and certification.

The ISO 27001:2005 standard specifies a formal information security management system that identifies, designs and implements the security controls necessary to help ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information assets, including customer data. External ISO 27001:2005 certification demonstrates Aon eSolutions’ continuing commitment to robust security and regulatory frameworks and standards in servicing its growing global customer base. In addition to ISO 27001:2005 certification, Aon eSolutions earned URAC HIPAA Security for Business Associate and Covered Entity accreditation in 2012 and conducts annual SSAE16/ISAE 3402 audit reviews through Ernst & Young. 

David Black, Aon eSolutions chief information security officer, said: “ISO 27001:2005 certification demonstrates that, from the perspective of risk mitigation and data security, Aon eSolutions provides market-leading levels of protection to our clients and their data. Being certified by an independent, internationally recognized accrediting body like BSI Group gives our customers peace of mind and assures them that data security is built in to all aspects of our business, from strategic planning to day-to-day operations.”

Paul Holden, Aon eSolutions chief information officer, said: “As the cloud has become the dominant method of delivering business solutions, mitigating risks to sensitive data has become a very public and pressing concern. Earning the ISO 27001:2005 certification, combined with our other accreditations, is proof of Aon eSolutions’ ongoing commitment to the security of our hosted risk, insurance and safety business solutions. For companies concerned about data privacy, security, compliance and availability of their data, the Aon eSolutions hosted business solutions ecosystem—RIScloud—sets the industry standard.” 

BSI Group conducted independent audits across multiple Aon eSolutions locations worldwide and has certified ISO 27001:2005 compliance for all processes and procedures that are part of the company’s information security management system (ISMS). All of Aon eSolutions’ global customers utilizing RIScloud—the company’s hosted, industry-leading risk, insurance and safety solutions—are covered by the ISMS.
