Cerence has improved its cybersecurity posture with ISO 27001 certification. The achievement comes as a result of an external audit that found that the company meets all of the requisite ISO standards.
Cerence is best known for providing conversational speech recognition technology for the automotive industry. The certification covers Cerence as a company, in addition to its various voice-powered AI products and virtual assistants.
“We’re deeply committed to the highest possible standards of data security for our customers and their drivers and are proud that our efforts have met this internationally recognized standard,” said Cerence CIO Bridget Collins. “Our certification illustrates our commitment to securely protecting our customer data as part of delivering conversational automotive assistants that enhance driver safety and the driving experience.”
Cybersecurity will be particularly important as Cerence continues to support its Cerence Pay in-car payment platform, which debuted in July. The company itself was able to attain ISO 27001 certification after only one year as an independent entity. Cerence has made significant inroads in the Chinese market during that time, providing voice assistant technology for new smart electric vehicles from BJEV and NIO in the past few weeks alone.
Cerence achieved ISO certification one month after ForgeRock accomplished the same feat.
