Why MDG Clients are the Perfect Customer

27001:2013 CERTIFIED
We are ISO 27001 certified, making MDG one of the few platforms in our industry to meet the highest internationally recognized security standard.

Our certificate was issued by Sustainable Management Group (SMG), an independent third-party auditor, validated by the International Accredited Service (IAS) to perform certifications.

To achieve this certification, a company has to go through a rigorous audit and certification process. Sustainable Management Group reviewed our security and privacy practices in detail and confirmed that we follow all the security compliance to deliver the best level of information security.

What Does Being ISO 27001:2013 Certified Mean?

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized standard for managing the safety and security of the information and data. A company needs to have an information security management system in place, documented process, and policies for managing information.

Being ISO 27001:2013 certified means that business manages and handles data and sensitive information in a secure manner. It demonstrates the priority of information security and commitment to protecting information against external and internal threats, risks of loss or misuse.

What Are The Requirements for a Company to Be Certified?

To achieve ISO 27001 certification a company must provide the third-party auditor with documented evidence and interviews with department heads to demonstrate how business meet the requirements of ISO 27001. To maintain the certifications, the company is subject to regular third-party audits.

ISO certification is a detailed, lengthy process which involves huge effort, reviews, audits, and commitment. Statistics from the most recent ISO Survey (for 2019) show there are only 148 accredited and certified businesses in Canada.

We are proud to be one of the few companies complying with internationally recognized standards.

What Does It Mean to Our Customers That We Are Certified?

As a digital company with millions of customers, the security of our clients' information is of the utmost importance, and we keep it in strict confidence.

This certificate shows that data security and privacy is our priority – our customers can trust that we do not share their information and take extensive steps in protecting it.

It is the proof that we have all measures needed to securely and safely protect the confidentiality of our client data and privacy.

Continuous Improvement for Maintaining The ISO 27001 Certification

The ISO 27001 standard demands continuous improvement. Yearly audits will be performed by an external auditor (in our case Sustainable Management Group), to ensure that business is operating and maintaining a professional and high quality service.

We believe that our investment in ISO 27001 gives our clients confidence that their information and data is as safe and secure as it can be.
