NEP The Netherlands compliant with ISO27001 standard

Hilversum, 26 July 2016Hilversum, The Netherlands – As of July 22nd, NEP The Netherlands, world leading media technology specialist, officially meets the international standard for information security (ISO27001). This certificate proves that all (confidential) information handled by NEP The Netherlands is highly protected and the organization itself is “in control”. This tremendously reduces the risk of illegal or unauthorized access to the data. The certification applies to the Digital Media Services (including ingest, quality control and digital distribution to content platforms), the Playout and LiveCenter environments and all managed hosting services of NEP The Netherlands.

ISO/IEC 27001 is an internationally recognized best practice framework for an information security management system (ISMS). Information security plays an increasingly important role in the business and media industry. Developments such as cloud services force companies to continue improving their policies and processes. As NEP The Netherlands handles highly critical (business) information and video content, all processes regarding information security must be in order. An independent auditor evaluated NEP as very positive without a single deviation. NEP therefore meets the international standard for securing systems that contain (confidential) information. This guarantees the protection of customer data in a standardized way.

Ralf van Vegten, CIO NEP The Netherlands: “Our services often rely on shared technical platforms and infrastructures that operate in the background. Due to this increasing complexity, demarcating the information systems is more and more complicated. This makes obtaining the certificate, without any deviation, extra special. With this certificate we show our clients, suppliers and stakeholders that information security is a top priority. I am extremely proud of our people and their commitment. This certificate is yet another confirmation of the high quality that we pursue at all times!”
