As a close partner of the biggest banks in the world, Pollinate has an ongoing commitment to information security management, and to ensuring security of the data it holds. Pollinate’s ISO 27001 certification is proof of its commitment to taking data confidentiality seriously, as confirmed by an independent audit and verification process.

ISO 27001 is the leading security standard that certifies that an organisation has robust security controls and processes in place to protect the company and other company’s assets. It supports compliance with a number of laws, including the UK GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

It is globally recognised as a benchmark for security practice, and requires ongoing independent audit and certification by an accredited body, ensuring an ongoing commitment to information security.

ISO 27001 requires an organisation to:

  • Systematically examine the organisation’s information security risks, including threats, vulnerabilities and impacts
  • Design and implement a comprehensive suite of information security controls to address the aforementioned risks
  • Adopt an overarching management process to ensure that the controls continue to meet the organisation’s information security needs going forward

Pollinate’s ISO 27001 certification aligns it with the strict security regulations its banking partners must adhere to, strengthening it as a partner for banks across the world that want to transform their merchant acquiring offering.
