MM digital: Highest data security TÜV certified
27.03.2018 - Innovations / Investments, Company / Mills
With the “Trusted Application” seal, TÜV Austria confirms that MM digital satisfies the highest standards of data protection and information security. An important distinction for the high Quality standards of our new online platform.
Transparency and protection of personal data
All through the development of MM digital, we paid particular attention to full process transparency and data protection. This is also why we decided to have these criteria checked by an independent institute. TÜV Austria awarded MM digital the “Trusted Application” seal, confirming the Application’s compliance with the latest security and data protection standards. Martin Novak of TÜV Austria: The topic of data protection is a top priority at MM Board & Paper. At the technical level, MM digital satisfies the requirements of IT security in accordance with the requirements of the TÜV-Trusted Application certification. Users are given full transparency about their data every step of the way. The employees are aware and have a thorough understanding of data protection and the compliant handling of personal data.
Extensive test process
The TÜV certification requires an extensive test process that critically examines security and data protection aspects and fundamental online presentation criteria. The stringent requirement catalogue of the TÜV certification is based on international standards (e.g. ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 27033/18028), legal requirements (Federal Data Protection Act or BDSG, Data Protection Act or DSG) as well as special criteria of TÜV TRUST IT.
The certification process was divided into the following steps: Aside from a technical weak point analysis of the application and infrastructure, the relevant organisational processes for administering the online platform and infrastructure were also inspected. The organisational analyses were conducted by means of document audits and supplementary interviews. Finally, the data protection check examined the data protection compliant treatment of customer and employee data.
The result: MM digital is characterised by a high level of security, transparent and efficient processes, intuitive usability, and meets all of the requirements for the strict TÜV certification. Annual follow-up audits will ensure that the high standards are maintained or further improved. At the end of the third year, the platform will go through a recertification process.
