Employee Onboarding Template: ISO 27001

Subject: [Important] ISO 27001 readiness and Vanta onboarding

Hi Team! 

 

As you all know, we are working on obtaining our ISO 27001 certification.

We are pursuing our ISO 27001 to ensure the security of our customer's data. Many customers even have specific teams that need to validate the security of the software they purchase. With ISO 27001, we're able to instill trust with customers regarding our data protection practices and in turn, expedite our sales cycles. 

To prepare for this audit, we've been working with a SaaS company, Vanta, to help us become and stay ISO 27001 compliant. As part of the audit process, we need you to be onboarded onto Vanta. This is an investment of time to ensure we all follow consistent security practices and a seamless audit.

 

Please complete the following steps

  • Go to https://app.vanta.com/onboarding
  • Read and accept our security policies 
  • Install the Vanta Agent on your company machine (e.g. laptop). With limited access, the app can only read info that is set on your machine. It ensures:
    • A password manager is installed
    • The hard disk is encrypted
    • The operating system is up-to-date
  • Complete security awareness training
    • The online training should take 8 mins to complete, from start to finish and will automatically track your completion (important to not click out of the video or you may have to start over) 

To help us stay on track with our goal & timeline, we need all employees to complete their required steps by [ENTER DATE HERE]. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
