CACI International Inc ( NYSE: CACI) announced today that it has been certified for the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 credential for information security policies and practices. The enterprise-wide certification is independent verification that CACI's internal corporate information technology (IT) infrastructure and information security policies and practices adhere to the best practices defined in the ISO standard. This is the second enterprise-wide ISO credential the company has received, having been certified for the ISO 9001:2015 quality management credential in May. CACI's ongoing success in meeting industry-recognized standards reflects the company's commitment to delivering excellence and high quality in all its solutions and services.

The ISO 27001 certification is earned on the basis of an external audit. Auditors examined every aspect of CACI's internal information security policies and practices - those internal processes developed to ensure corporate information technology infrastructure and policies are secure and compliant. The certification defines requirements for information security management systems and serves as an industry-recognized measurement of effective policies and practices.

Receiving the ISO 27001 certification is key to CACI's strategy for achieving compliance with the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-171, the federal government's set of requirements to safeguard covered defense information and cyber incident reporting. The NIST 800-171 is currently required for all Department of Defense contracts and is anticipated to become a government-wide requirement by 2017.

CACI Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations John Mengucci said, "The ISO 27001 certification, along with the ISO 9001:2015 certification announced in May, is a reflection of CACI's commitment to ensuring our internal IT infrastructure and policies and practices meet the highest industry and government standards."

Ken Asbury, CACI's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "This enterprise-wide certification, with its increased emphasis on information security policies and practices, is a testament to the excellence that we pursue at CACI as our constant goal. We are pleased at the recognition the International Organization for Standardization has given us, as it acknowledges CACI's focus on our internal security."
