At AB Tasty, security is fundamental to delivering the best-in-class customer experiences. This is not only a belief that we share with our clients but have also woven into the fabric of our company operations.
AB Tasty’s firm footing in the world of tech innovation entails upholding the highest standards of security and data protection. To that end, the company has successfully completed ISO 27001 certification — a feat that not only cements our level of excellence in information security but as well points to a strong privacy ecosystem.
The ISO 27001 certification, alongside our GDPR compliance as well as PCI-DSS and SOC 2 practices, is among the many layers of AB Tasty’s ambitious security program — designed for continuous review of how we handle sensitive data in our procedures and systems.
A people-first approach to security
Prior to establishing any policy or systematic implementation, the team knew they had to evangelize the central role of security. With that in mind, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Matthieu Chaignot united the IT, infrastructure and legal teams to be fervent defenders of security before all else.
“The truth is we are only as strong as our weakest link so we need to make sure that everyone understands the importance of security and be conscious of how they are coming across data or assets. It wasn’t enough to design the best processes or implement new tools, we needed to turn everyone into security addicts.”Matthieu Chaignot, Chief Information Security Officer
The cross-functional approach to security ensured that while the tech and engineering experts were behind the deployment of all critical domains, the employees were the frontline protectors.
The road to ISO 27001 certification
The highly sought-after ISO 27001:2013, created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), represents the global standard in information security. Specifically, the group establishes guidelines on how companies manage their information systems and secure their assets.
AB Tasty’s client- and server-side experiments enable businesses to launch better products faster and drive more conversions, engagement and revenue across multiple platforms. The ISO 27001 certification of both products was fundamental to building on the trust we have with our customers.
The certification confirms that we have not only identified all the potential risks, but we have implemented the right information security practices to address those risks. The ISO 27001 certification ensures that we have:
- Implemented IT security policies and procedures to uphold business continuity;
- Mitigated risks through formalized security controls and countermeasures; and
- Maintained and continually improved ISMS (Information Security Management System).
Building a reliable security infrastructure
When it comes to security, it’s more than a set of measures. It’s a mindset. The data protection of employees and clients is crucial to any successful business relationship. From our information security management systems to our products, they are built with the highest standards of protection. It also means that as our company continues to scale in volume, the security controls we have in place will become more robust over time.
“From the very beginning, AB Tasty has effortlessly worked to ensure privacy and compliance. The accreditations and industry-wide recognitions do not change our approach, but rather highlight our commitment to the security of external and internal data on a daily basis”.Remi Aubert, co-founder and president of AB Tasty
