These ISO certifications build on a long list of security accreditations for the company, as privacy and security are at the core of Pexip’s strategy and culture.
Oslo, January 30, 2023: Pexip, a global video technology company, today announced that it has renewed the Information Security Management System standard: ISO/IEC 27001:2013, in addition to the addendums to this standard, ISO/IEC 27017:2015 and ISO/IEC 27018:2019. Pexip was also granted certification for ISO/IEC 27701:2019, a privacy extension to ISO 27001, as part of this review.
Pexip obtained the ISO 27001 certification three years ago, awarded to companies who meet rigorous standards around information security and data protection. The newer ISO 27701 certification requires companies to implement, maintain, and continually improve a Privacy Information Management System.
“The renewal and extension of this certification is the result of our meticulous focus on privacy and security,” says Geir Aasen, Chief Information Security Officer, Pexip. “We are proud to be one of the best-in-class when it comes to meeting high data protection standards, as this accountability is essential for our customers. Protecting their confidential and sensitive information is our top priority.”
Pexip was reviewed and granted the ISO standards by international certification body DNV. The addendums to ISO 27001 and the ISO 27701 standards include an assessment of how the company protects data in its cloud services, as well as how it handles personal data.
“We believe in continually holding ourselves to high standards. The ISO validation builds on our other certifications such as FIPS 140-2, CSA STAR Level 1, and Certification de Sécurité de Premier Niveau (CSPN), as well as Pexip's ability to enable your compliance with HIPAA, Section 508, and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will continue to push ourselves to develop and improve our privacy and security practices, in the best interests of our customers,” says Aasen.
