Data Security and ISO Certification

Data Security and ISO Certification

At Dallas Audio Post, data security has always been important to us, and our decades-long track record of protecting the integrity and security of our client’s data stands on its own.

In 2019, we decided to go one step further and contracted award-winning security services company Critical Start to evaluate and test our data infrastructure, and to certify us as ISO 27002 compliant.

ISO/IEC 27002 is a popular, internationally-recognized standard of good practice for information security, and is often required by clients who are very sensitive to data breaches -such as Netflix and the US government.

The Critical Start evaluation process was thorough and probed into not only our data security practices, but also our physical infrastructure, staff training, and even insurance coverage. Our baseline standards were very good, but the evaluation helped us to tweak and streamline some processes and infrastructure to reduce risk even further. For example: we added additional security cameras and more thoroughly documented our backup and archival system.

ISO compliance isn’t just a one-time check. It requires regular disclosure of our firewall logs, and periodic testing of our systems to make sure that no bad actors can attack our client’s proprietary data.

Contact us to evaluate our certification for yourself, and always remember that we treat the data required for your projects with the care and respect that it deserves.
