ShareRing Achieves ISO 27001 Certification, Setting New Standards for Web3 Identity Development

August 24, 2023

ShareRing, a leading innovator in the blockchain and digital identity space, proudly announces that it has become one of the first self-sovereign identity blockchains to achieve its ISO 27001 certification. This remarkable achievement solidifies ShareRing’s commitment to security, privacy, and trust within the decentralized web, paving the way for enhanced identity development standards across Web3.

The ISO 27001 certification is a significant milestone for ShareRing and the entire blockchain industry. By adhering to the stringent guidelines set forth by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ShareRing has successfully demonstrated its dedication to safeguarding sensitive user information and ensuring the highest level of data protection.

With the growing adoption of blockchain technology in various sectors, digital identity has emerged as a crucial aspect of modern online interactions. However, conventional identity solutions have often proven to be centralized, vulnerable to data breaches, and lacking individual control. ShareRing's self-sovereign identity blockchain addresses these challenges by empowering users with complete ownership and control over their personal data, thus revolutionizing the way identity is managed in the digital realm.

By obtaining ISO 27001 certification, ShareRing has undergone a rigorous audit of its information security management system, ensuring compliance with international best practices. This comprehensive evaluation encompasses risk management, data protection, incident response, and a holistic approach to security that safeguards against potential threats in a rapidly evolving landscape.

"Being one of the first self-sovereign identity blockchains to achieve ISO 27001 certification is a testament to our unyielding dedication to the security and privacy of our users" said Jonathon Liu, VP of Marketing at ShareRing. "We believe that self-sovereign identity is the key to establishing trust and enabling secure digital interactions. This certification reinforces the commitment to our internal standards for identity management, and gives us stronger foundations to developing decentralized identity technology for all people and institutions."

ISO 27001 certification not only boosts confidence among ShareRing's existing user base but also sets an industry benchmark for other identity blockchain platforms to follow suit. As more businesses and individuals recognize the benefits of decentralized, self-sovereign identity, the ISO 27001 certification serves as an influential catalyst for elevating internal and external security, and privacy standards across the entire Web3 ecosystem.

ShareRing remains at the forefront of the digital identity revolution, continually pushing boundaries to create a safer and more empowering online environment. The achievement of ISO 27001 certification is a critical milestone that reinforces ShareRing's position as a leader in the self-sovereign identity space, inspiring a new era of trust and privacy within the decentralized web.
