March 25, 2021

Data privacy software company for the digital marketing ecosystem certified to both ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27701

London and New York, 19 March 2021: Sourcepoint, the data privacy software company  of record for the digital marketing ecosystem, today announces it has been certified to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (“ISO/IEC 27001”) and ISO/IEC 27701:2019 (“ISO/IEC 27701”). In partnership with Coalfire, the full certification recognizes Sourcepoint’s commitment to providing customers with the highest level of information security and privacy management. 

As global regulation continues to evolve with the introduction of the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe, and Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados (LGPD) in Brazil, businesses are elevating their data privacy practices. The rigorous audit process against both standards highlights Sourcepoint’s capabilities to safeguard personal and sensitive data and comply with international regulatory requirements.

Sourcepoint selected Coalfire for its extensive experience certifying global organizations against ISO standards and its innovation in the privacy space, as one of the world’s first certification bodies to receive accreditation for the new Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) in March 2020. .

“By achieving these certifications Sourcepoint embodies its commitment to adhering to the highest standards of data protection and privacy,” comments Ben Barokas, CEO and Co-Founder at Sourcepoint. “There has been a movement to data privacy regulations in the past few years, which is only set to continue. The landscape is not getting any less complex, which is why it is so important for all businesses to align themselves on the right side of data ethics and good digital citizenship now.” 

ISO/IEC 27001 is the international standard which sets out requirements for implementing, maintaining, and improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS), to keep information protected against security risks. The recently introduced ISO/IEC 27701 extends the requirements of well-known ISO standards in the area of privacy, detailing how to correctly operate a PIMS and safeguard personally identifiable information (PII)

Brian Kane, COO and co-founder comments: “ These standards present a truly integrated privacy and security program for Sourcepoint that not only provides a set of controls that can be mapped to various regulations, but demonstrates a commitment to aligning with leading practices that prioritizes the safety and security of customer data. We are committed to upholding the highest privacy standards to better serve our partners and their customers.”

Will Dunphy, Senior Manager of Privacy Assurance, at Coalfire adds: “Sourcepoint’s achievement of certification to these standards is a testament to the dedication towards both information security and privacy best practices that is prevalent throughout every level of the organization. By enhancing its existing programs through the implementation of the management system framework defined within the ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27701 standards, Sourcepoint has established a foundation that will enable it to succeed in an increasingly complex, regulatory environment.”
