Showpad Sets Industry Security Standard with ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and 27701:2019 Certifications

Here at Showpad, we believe that the buyer experience is the ultimate differentiator for every business. That’s why our products and services are designed to empower our customers to be at their best. But our commitment to our customers goes well beyond powerful tools and features.

The British Standards Institution (BSI) has recognized Showpad for having a first-class information security management system (ISMS) and privacy information management system (PIMS).

On May 19, 2021 we announced our official ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and 27701:2019 certifications. This is an exciting development as Showpad is the first Revenue Enablement platform in the industry to have achieved the ISO/IEC 27701:2019 certification.

Showpad uses the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 leading standard, applying the guidelines and general principles defined in ISO 27002 for implementing, maintaining and improving a risk-based information security management system. Together, these qualifications demonstrate our dedication to providing our customers with a secure, flexible and easy to use platform that they can always rely on.

What is the ISO 27701? 

The ISO 27701:2019 certificate validates the maturity of our privacy program in managing personal data and compliance with privacy laws. Showpad applies a GDPR-first strategy when handling personal data of all of its customers worldwide.

Keeping customer data secure is one of our top priorities. By continuing to meet the highest information security and privacy standards in the industry, we let our customers focus on what matters: implementing the tools and technology to drive revenue.

Just how unique is this achievement?

These certifications aren’t easy to come by. Showpad is the first Revenue Enablement vendor in the industry to have achieved the ISO/IEC 27701:2019 certification, making us certified to the new ISO privacy standard as both a data processor and controller.

Showpad is also proud to be one of the few companies worldwide to have the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and 27701:2019 certification. This positions Showpad uniquely as an innovator in sales enablement and as a leader in management practices.

The 27701:2019 certificate is further proof of Showpad’s broader data security and privacy program. Outside of this certificate, we’re proud to possess ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification and maintain a SOC 2 Type 2 assurance report as well as an International Standard for Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3402 Type 1 report.

Data security and privacy are at the heart of Showpad

Nothing is more important to us than the security of our customers.

As an EU-founded company, it goes without saying that adherence to the strict EU privacy rules is the focal point for our privacy program. Showpad has always been a leader in processing the personal data entrusted to us by all our customers in a secure and trustworthy way. With the successful conclusion of the third party audit and obtaining the ISO 27701:2019 certificate, a first in the sales enablement space, Showpad continues to demonstrate our global leadership and affirm our ongoing efforts to lead in privacy and security.

This certification will allow Showpad users to roll out a global Revenue Enablement platform with full transparency on the processing of personal information, and can significantly reduce internal compliance workloads when implementing Showpad.  

What does this mean for Showpad customers?

Compliance and security are as essential to our product thinking as flexibility and time to value. Our certified privacy program: 

  • Generates trust towards our customers that we have a top notch and mature program in managing personal data
  • Helps in managing compliance with privacy laws
  • Clears the roles and responsibilities within Showpad when it comes down to managing personal data
