TikTok announced it gained the ISO 27001 certification in the UK and the US, with India, Ireland, and Singapore to follow soon.
ISO 27001 is an international standard on how to manage information security. For TikTok, that proves that it is handling personal data with the highest standards.
News of the certification was shared by Roland Cloutier, TikTok’s Chief Information Security Officer. Cloutier explained in a blog post that independent third-party auditors performed a series of rigorous checks to confirm that TikTok’s controls, global security, and risk operations met the highest standards, evaluating how the platform protects its development, infrastructure, operations, and services, including:
Cloutier wrote, “Achieving the ISO 27001 certification is another step in our comprehensive security journey, and this important work is ongoing and always will be. We remain focused on taking our efforts to the next level and leading our industry by persistently investing, iterating, and upholding our commitments to protect the vibrant TikTok community.”
