CumulusTrust introduces Security Officer Online: subscription based information security

ISO27001 at the fingertips of every Cloud and SaaS provider!

Groningen, September 10, 2013 – Today CumulusTrust introduces the new online service “Security Officer Online”. This service brings certification within easy reach for every Cloud and SaaS provider, without a need for high investments upfront.  With the new service the company responds to the increasing demand of governments and end users for certified cloud services.

Frits Veltink, Partner at CumulusTrust: “as the number of Cloud and SaaS services is growing quickly, governments are putting legislation around these services high on the agenda. Compliance becomes increasingly important as a result of this development. For many companies the certification process is a cumbersome administrative process, for which focus and dedication is often inadequate. With our CumulusTrust Security Officer Online services we simplify this process”.

The three key elements of this service are an online ISMS-application, online training videos and support by information security experts, all at a fixed subscription price per month.

The customer can choose from three different service levels varying from online “support only” to project management and pre-audits on site. Every company can choose the level of service it requires based on its maturity.  Additionally CumulusTrust helps Cloud and SaaS providers to facilitate their customers to build their own management system for information security.

“With this service we help companies without their own GRC staff, but that are facing an increasing demand for certified services”, says Temme Sikkema, Director at CumulusTrust. “Based on our systematic approach with built-in know-how, we are capable of working very cost effective in the pre- as well as in the post- certification phase. On top of that we integrate all relevant certification standards such as ISO27001, NEN7510 en PCI-DSS.”

Martijn van Zoeren, CEO of DutchCloud is already using the service: “besides the efficient approach it offers us the possibility to integrate our own certification with that of our customers and partners. The end user in the chain gets a transparent, compliant and auditable cloud service”.


CumulusTrust brings clarity in the jungle of security standards and helps you comply with those that fit best. All supported with a SaaS ISMS environment, online education and a customer success desk with online expert support.

 "Security Officer Online“ was established in partnership with SaaS Assurance Ltd.
