A-LIGN is an ISO/IEC 27001 certification body accredited by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) to perform ISMS 27001 certifications.

ISO27001 is vital to the industry. It provides the measure by which an organization's information security management system is audited in concert with internationally accepted standards. An independent and accredited auditor conducts the audit. This level of accreditation and a high set of standards provides customers with a high level of confidence in the quality of the audit of the Coretek ISMS.
Compliance with this internationally recognized standard confirms that Coretek's information security management program is comprehensive and follows leading best practices.
