General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
On 25 May, 2018, a new European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is due to take effect. GDPR imposes new obligations on companies and government agencies that market, track, or handle the personal data of individuals residing in the European Union (EU).
Mimecast is committed to GDPR compliance across our products and services when enforcement of the law comes into effect and will provide GDPR related assurances in our contracts.
Please visit our GDPR area for information on how Mimecast is assisting our customers in achieving GDPR compliance.
ISO 27001 Certification
ISO/IEC 27001 is the internationally recognized, best-known standard providing requirements for an information security management system (ISMS). ISO 27001 Information Security and data protection certification provides organizations with a way to globally certify information security and data protection for businesses which are safeguarding both their client and company data against potential threats. By integrating a robust information security management system, organizations can ensure that the quality, safety, service and product reliability of the organization is safeguarded to the highest level.
SOC 2 Attestation Reports
These reports are intended to meet the needs of a broad range of users that need to understand internal control at a service organization as it relates to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. They are intended for use by stakeholders (e.g., customers, regulators, business partners, suppliers, directors) of the service organization that have a thorough understanding of the service organization and its internal controls.
Mimecast North America’s SOC 2 Type 1 report reported on the description of Mimecast's system and the suitability of the design of controls in place.
Mimecast has also received the SOC 2 Type II attestation report that tested the operating effectiveness of Mimecast's global systems and operations for the Trust Services Principles for Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, and Confidentiality.
Both reports are available on request to prospects that sign the appropriate NDA and to existing customers under their service agreement confidentiality.
Shared Information Gathering (SIG) Assessment Report
The Standardized Information Gathering (“SIG”) questionnaire contains a robust, yet easy-to-use set of questions to gather and assess information technology, operating and security risks (and their corresponding controls) in an information technology environment. The SIG questions are based on referenced industry standards and guidelines (including, but not limited to, FFIEC, OCC, ISO, NIST, COBIT and PCI), and in addition to assessing a third-party’s environment, can be used by a company to self-assess its own control environment. The SIG is in an Excel format, which should be familiar to most users. The Mimecast completed SIG Questionnaire Report is available on request to prospects that sign the appropriate NDA and to existing customers under their service agreement confidentiality.
