Africa’s leading enterprise marketing technology company, Terragon has successfully completed her 2nd ISO 27001 surveillance audit. The ISO 27001 certification is a global certification for Information Security Management Systems and is only common among fortune 500 companies and other leading global firms involved in data processing.
In a statement made available to journalists, the Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder of Terragon, Ayodeji Balogun, explained the importance of the certification noting that it was necessary to ensure that they maintained global standard practices while enabling intelligent connections between brands and their customers.
“This certification affirms our superior data governance culture and our ability to guarantee the security of valuable assets including financial information, intellectual property, customer data, employee details or information entrusted by third parties; as we process volumes of data via our Customer Data Platform (CDP) and other Data platforms,” he said.
“As Africa’s leading data and analytics company, Data Privacy is at the core of our business existence and our clients can rest assured that their customer data processed via our software are fully privacy compliant and the risk of unauthorised access to their data is almost non-existent. In addition to this ISO 27001 certification, we are NDPR certified, and since we have partners in Europe and other parts of the word, are also GDPR and CCPA compliant,” Balogun added
With the growing importance of Data to business survival, how information is stored, who has access to it, and how it is protected against unwanted leakage and breaches is critical.
This Certification is one of the main reasons why top tier Banks, multinational FMCG as well as global digital platforms decide to co-operate only with enterprises certified by ISO.
