Copyright Clearance Center achieves ISO 27001 ISMS certification
- 18 Jan 2019

Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, has achieved certification to the ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) from DNV GL, a global quality assurance and risk management company.

ISO 27001 is an internationally acknowledged management system standard for information security. Created and administered by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 27001 provides a framework for establishing implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an organisation's information security management system.

A rigorous and thorough audit of a company's information security management systems and controls must be conducted by third party auditors in order for certification to be granted. CCC received certification with 'No Non-Conformities,' the highest standard.

Adherence to ISO 27001 principles enables CCC to protect the important data it handles, by providing secure systems for: Confidentiality; Integrity; and Availability.

CCC also completed its SOC 2 (Type 2) audits with 'No Exceptions' (the highest standard), for the second year in a row. CCC qualified in the initial group of applicants for the EU/US Privacy Shield and for recertification and has obtained Swiss/US Privacy certification. CCC online privacy notices are reviewed and certified annually by TRUSTe/TRUSARC.

ProQuest named as a preferred supplier in Jisc's digital archival collections group purchasing scheme
- 16 Jan 2019

ProQuest has been designated as a preferred supplier in Jisc's digital archival collections group purchasing scheme, giving academic institutions improved access to primary-source databases.

In 2017, Jisc - a U.K. member organization that provides digital technology and digital resources for higher education - kicked off a group purchasing pilot for digital archival collections. The pilot built on the power of collective purchasing with the goal of lowering customer costs.

After the pilot's conclusion, Jisc accepted ProQuest as a preferred supplier through 2022. Members will continue to acquire ProQuest databases using the same purchasing model used in the pilot. Currently, 20 ProQuest databases are available through the program, and offerings will be re-evaluated each year as members' needs change.

ProQuest databases were selected for the Jisc purchasing scheme based on in-depth curriculum analyses conducted for the U.K. higher education community, as well as consideration for the ProQuest content Jisc members have already invested in.
