Zeotap maintains ISO 27001 and adds Cloud Security Alliance Silver STAR certification
Zeotap, one of the world’s largest mobile data platforms, today announced that it has been recertified for ISO/IEC 27001 after meeting the stringent requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS) as put forward by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Zeotap opted for this recertification to continue to assure clients and partners they can conduct their business with the company under the complete assurance of world-leading data security and privacy controls.
Moreover, zeotap undertook an additional rigorous security assessment for the aspects of its business that make use of cloud services and was awarded the STAR Silver (2nd highest level) by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) an independent, non-profit certification body. The CSA certification is only granted on the precondition of a successful ISO certification and can be regarded as a supplemental layer of security. Both certifications entail a meticulous audit in which not only technological safeguards and monitoring are assessed, but also the security of office premises, communication safeguards, quality of leadership and management and the degree to which employees are educated on the topic. zeotap was ISO-recertified in May 2018 and CSA-certified in April 2018. The process was administered by BSI. You can view the ISO certification here and CSA here.
On receiving these prestigious certifications, Projjol Banerjea, Co-founder & CPO and IAPP CIPT (Certified Information Privacy Technologist by the International Association of Privacy Professionals) at Zeotap said, "We are proud to not only maintain our ISO/IEC 27001 certification but also earn the STAR Silver credentials from CSA. At zeotap, we adhere to a privacy and security-first approach. In fact, zeotap is one of few companies in our industry to achieve this level of accreditation.”
“We frequently receive queries on our privacy and security controls from business partners, especially larger enterprise clients from industries such as telecoms. These globally-recognised certifications establish credibility and convey our commitment to ensuring our systems are second to none,” he added.“One of the biggest benefits of the ISO/IEC 27001 certification is that it focuses on the maintenance of an information management solution that influences all areas of an organization. While establishing partnerships with several institutions across Europe, US, Canada and India, zeotap has found this to be a unique competitive advantage.”
