SPOKEO ACHIEVES ISO 27001:2013 CERTIFICATION FOR STATE-OF-THE-ART INFORMATION SECURITY PRACTICES

People Search Provider Qualifies for Highest Level of Information Security Standards

PASADENA, Calif. (March. XX, 2018) – Spokeo, a leading people search platform, announced today that it is now an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified organization whose Information Security Management System (ISMS) has received the prestigious, third-party accreditation from the International Standards Organization. This certification demonstrates Spokeo’s commitment to maintaining the highest security standards in the integrity and confidentiality of its customer data.

Spokeo joins a plethora of leading, global businesses that have earned the highly coveted ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, an information security management system standard published in October 2013 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The ISO is the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards for information security. This ‘Gold Standard’ for security certifications comes from A-LIGN, an independent, third-party auditor, who found Spokeo to have technical controls in place and formalized IT security policies and procedures. Spokeo has implemented several security measures and countermeasures that protect it from unauthorized access or compromise.

Company data breaches are on the rise; in the first half of 2017 alone, 2 billion data records around the world were lost or stolen, according to the latest findings by Gemalto. Data security is a top concern for companies and their customers alike. Spokeo, an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified company, voluntarily practices industry-leading best practices to ensure the security of their clients’ sensitive information.

“Since 2015, Spokeo’s executive management and dedicated data security teams have worked diligently to build an infrastructure that exceeds standard security guidelines,” said Harrison Tang, co-founder and chief executive officer, Spokeo. “We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of information security and ensuring our customers that the security of their data and information has been addressed and properly controlled across all areas of our organization. Obtaining recognition for this is a great accomplishment for Spokeo.”

The scope of Spokeo’s ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification includes all private customer information and any systems that store, transmit or process customer data.
