Security Compliance

We know you need to validate compliance to trust a cloud service provider. We work hard to get certifications and strive to adhere to widely accepted standards and regulations to keep you at ease. We also test our operations, environment, and controls using independent third-party advisors and publish their reports and opinions as they become available.

ISO27001 - Information Security Management System

ISO27001 is recognized as the premier information security management system (ISMS) standard worldwide. ISO27001 also leverages the comprehensive security controls detailed in ISO27002. The basis of this certification is the development and implementation of a rigorous security management program, including the development and implementation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS). This widely-recognized and widely-respected international security standard specifies that companies that attain certification also:

  • Systematically evaluate our information security risks, taking into account the impact of security threats and vulnerabilities
  • Design and implement a comprehensive suite of information security controls to address security risks
  • Implement an overarching audit and compliance management process to ensure that the controls meet our needs on an ongoing basis

Our Service Providers

We hold our service providers to very high standards. Data centers, co-location and managed service providers undergo regular SOC1, SOC2 and/or ISO 27001 audits to verify their practices. PayMyVAT reviews the results of these audits at least annually as part of our vendor management program. In the event these audits have material findings which we determine present risks to PayMyVAT or our customers, we work with the service provider to understand any potential impact to customer data and track their remediation efforts until the issue has been resolved.

Validating our Practices

Independent third-party audits

We use independent third-parties to audit our practices against most sought after standards and regulations in the world.  These reviews occur at least annually and are conducted by highly-respected audit and security firms that are independent and thorough in their evaluations. We take their reports very seriously and have processes in place to address any issues that present risks to us or our customers.

External and internal application security testing

Our security team performs automated and manual application security testing and network vulnerability testing on an on-going basis to identify and patch potential security vulnerabilities and bugs on our desktop, web, and mobile applications. We also work with third-party security specialists, as well as other industry security research community members.

Continuous Improvement

A critical part of any information security management program is the continual improvement of security and compliance programs, systems, and controls. PayMyVAT is committed to soliciting feedback from different internal teams, customers, internal and external auditors, and improving our security, privacy and compliance processes and controls over time.
