The certification recognizes the company’s dedication in protecting customer data. We have established a systematic and ongoing management of information security risks to handle corporate and personal information.
February 2021 – XGATE’s Digital Marketing Services (DMS) platform handles a wide range of data – customer profile, transaction, loyalty points/tiers, BI data etc. and we put a priority to protect those data. The company has been working aggressively to meet the strictest security requirements in the industry. Those efforts have translated into the company receiving the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification – the accreditation for its Information Security Management System (ISMS).
Being certified means XGATE has implemented data security controls, measures and policies that conform to internationally recognized standard. The global concerns of data privacy have led to many international legislation and data protection laws being implemented around the world like EU GDPR, HK PDPO and Singapore PDPA. Marketing agencies using digital platforms to collect and broadcast information need to guarantee those data are secured using methods conforming to formal, globally recognized processes. The Covid-19 pandemic has witnessed the rapid growth of a new digital era where certified approaches to data security will soon become standard for companies handling consumer data.
The global standard for information security is ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and it comprises a spectrum of requirements for the creation of a comprehensive information security management system, or ISMS.
“The certification of XGATE ISMS recognizes the company’s dedication in protecting customer data. We have established a systematic and ongoing management of information security risks to handle corporate and personal information,” according to Harry Chan, MIS Director at XGATE.
Parry Tam, Operations Director, “The ISO certification is an important milestone for the company. Not only do we have a secure process for the team to develop and launch quality products; but also, a proven approach to ensure service availability, and business continuity to assure our clients entrusting us with their data.”
XGATE’s certification was issued after the completion of a formal audit performed by QAS International. Questions about XGATE’s certification can be directed to Harry Chan, MIS Director, who is responsible for governing implementation and overseeing all ISO controls.
