On 25 May, 2018, a new European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), came into 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 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 is the international standard which is recognised globally for managing risks to the security of information you hold. Certification to ISO 27001 allows you to prove to your clients and other stakeholders that you are managing the security of your information. ISO 27001:2013 (the current version of ISO 27001) provides a set of standardised requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The standard adopts a process based approach for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, maintaining, and improving your ISMS.
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.
Mimecast has met a UK government requirement to publish its gender pay gap data. We believe that greater transparency and accountability will help us demonstrate and improve our commitments to equality and diversity.
The Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) is a division of the US FBI that sets standard for information security, guidelines and agreements aimed at protecting the Criminal Justice Information (CJI). The standards are reflected in the CJIS Security Policy, which describes the appropriate controls to protect the transmission, storage and access to data. While there is no CJIS authorization body or standardized assessment approach determining CJIS compliance, Mimecast has engaged with CJIS ACE to perform an audit of the controls within our Public Sector Grid to ensure they meet the requirements of the CJIS. This resulted in obtaining a CJIS Ready badge demonstrating that Mimecast satisfies those requirements across the 13 policies outlined in the CJIS Security Policy.
Mimecast partners with customers to help them address a wide range of international, country and industry-specific regulatory requirements.
