Adform Receives ISO/IEC 27001 Certification for Information Security Management across its Full Stack Ad Tech Platform
18 August 2016, London – Adform (www.adform.com), the independent and open full stack ad-tech platform servicing media agencies, trading desks, brands and publishers globally, today announced it has completed the ISO/IEC 27001 certification for information security management of its end-to-end tech stack. ISO/IEC 27001 is the best-known standard in the family providing requirements for an information security management system (ISMS). To date, Adform is the only full stack ad-tech platform to receive this certification.
The ISO/IEC 27001 standard provides requirements for ISMS, and encompasses people, processes and IT systems by applying a risk management process.
Using ISO/IEC 27001 standard helps Adform manage the security of assets, including financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information supplied by third parties. The ISO/IEC 27001 standard is a critical certification as all advertisers, agencies and publishers that work with an ad-tech vendor need absolute assurance that their data receives the highest level of protection possible.
“Security is a top priority at Adform. We opted to certify our complete tech stack to provide all Adform clients and users with total security and peace of mind,” said Jakob Bak, CTO of Adform. “Online marketing is of strategic and critical importance to most companies in the Banking, Finance and Telco industry which at the same time have very strict security and privacy constraints to follow. This certification allows their CMO’s and marketing departments to implement integrations and tracking technologies that they have previously been denied.”
“Advertisers need to do everything to retain their consumers privacy in their own interest as their visitor and customer data is private to the user and the customer data is the advertisers biggest asset against their competition. That means, we need to work with ad-tech vendors that have strong controls in place that protect our data assets and meet our commitment to our customers,” said Bülent Inci, Manager for Performance Marketing at Deutsche Bahn “The ISO/IEC 27001 is exhaustive, covering everything from people to systems, so with Adform, we know our data security needs are met.”
Information security management system applies to all Adform’s activities, including the provision of advertising automation services, design and development of advertising platform, provision of collaboration and information exchange enablement services for advertisers and consumers.
