Established by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), 27001 is a comprehensive security management standard that specifies a set of best practices and controls. ISO 27001 certified companies have demonstrated that they can securely manage assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties.
CHILI publish announced that it is ISO 27001:2017 certified. This certification builds on CHILI publish’s ongoing security efforts and brings the highest level of data reliability and security to customers of the company’s creative automation software solution.
‘Security has always been a top priority for our organisation and our employees; it permeates everything we do,’ said Bram Verniest, Chief Operating Officer and co-founder of CHILI publish. ‘As our creative automation solution moved to a SaaS business model, we wanted to give our growing list of Fortune 100 customers an official endorsement of our information security focus. Achieving the ISO 27001 certification gives our clients the highest level of confidence in how their data is managed. We could not be more proud of how the entire CHILI publish organisation rallied to achieve certification this year and continues to commit to a controlled business process.’
To achieve ISO 27001 certification, an auditor representing a certification body reviews the organisation’s practices, policies and procedures and assesses whether it meets the requirements of the Standard. Brand Compliance was the accredited auditor in charge. Guided by knowledge management consultant White Ravens Consulting BV and cyber security and privacy service provider Approach, Wesley Walraeve, IT manager at CHILI publish, led the CHILI publish audit.
He added, ‘Although our technology specialises in Smart Templates, we did not want to use some run-of-the-mill market templates for this audit. We took our time to draft and craft all the different processes to make sure our information security levels are as stable, reliable and tailored as the solutions they’re applied to.’
‘Information security should be a top priority at every company, and CHILI publish did not disappoint in delivering on its promise,’ said Tonny Oude Kempers, Auditor Information Security at Brand Compliance. ‘During the certification process, each team member we encountered was highly committed to attaining the highest information security standard in ISO 27001 certification.’
The creative automation platform offered by CHILI publish gives consumer brands and the agencies that serve them the opportunity to customise digital and print content at scale, enabling them to automate fast-moving inventory changes and multi-channel and multi-format personalisation faster and easier than before.
