Prizeology obtains ISO 27001 again

Prizeology obtains ISO 27001 accreditation again

Here at Prizeology we handle a lot of data. I’d like to be able to quantify that data, but I don’t think I can. I’m not even sure what units I would use. However, every year we run a lot of promotions and each one has a lot of entrants, so I’m sure you’ll agree that adds up to a lot of data.

So what do we do with that data? Do we casually leave it lying around where any cyber snooper can come across it? Or do we keep it in a secure location and look after it carefully? Well, of course that data safe and sound, and I can absolutely assure you of that, because we’ve recently had our ISO 27001 accreditation renewed.

You’re impressed, I can see, but just in case you’re not clear exactly what that means, Prizeology has been independently audited to ensure we are continuing to meet the ISO 27001 standard in terms of how we store, use and ultimately dispose of the data prize draw entrants entrust to us.

Meeting the standard

ISO 27001 is an international standard administered by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), which is a global standards body. ISO 27001 doesn’t dictate that a business must use certain tools or structure its filing in a certain way. Rather, it’s more like a framework that pulls together an array of policies and processes, testing their logic and making sure that they work to maintain data integrity and, crucially, protect the people whose data it is.

So there you have it. Admittedly it’s a little dry, but we felt you should know about this, because the ISO 27001 accreditation gives our clients and those who enter our prize promotions complete confidence that their data is safe with us.

If you’d like Prizeology to run a data-secure prize promotion for you, give us a call on 020 7856 0402 or email us via hello@prizeology.com
