NextBillion.ai, spatial data platform, announced that it has received ISO 27001:2013 certification, a widely recognized international standard outlining best practices for information security management systems. It covers NextBillion.ai’s Mapping Platform, Enterprise Data Cloud and Map Data Management built for Enterprises. The certification was awarded by American International Accreditation Organization (AIAO-BAR) after following an extensive independent external audit.
“As an enterprise-grade location data platform, we have always prioritized following the highest standards for managing risk, governance and compliance right since inception. The certification reaffirms our commitment to protecting our customer's data through our technology, people and processes,” said Ajay Bulusu, co-founder of NextBilion.ai.
ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical Commission) have collectively formed a system that lays out the requirements for an information security management system across a company, right from creation, execution, maintenance and continuous improvement. This International Standard certification also takes into account how an organization assesses, treats and preserves the confidentiality, integrity and availability of sensitive information.
The process to get certified is extensive, methodical and stringent. For NextBillion.ai, this valuable exercise stretched out for over a year. With rising concerns around location and map services’ consumer data and privacy policies, the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification serves as an assurance to NextBillion.ai’s clients that they can trust the company to handle their data securely. It recognizes that the enterprise-centric location data platform can deliver tailored solutions while ensuring that end-to-end quality management metrics are met and that customer's sensitive information is never at risk.
