The community’s protection, security, and privacy are TikTok’s top priorities. They are constantly working to improve and advance our security efforts in order to keep the internet as a place for self-expression, innovation, and joy safe and secure. That’s why TikTok is pleased to announce that they are now ISO 27001 accredited in the United States and the United Kingdom, with Singapore, Ireland, and India on the way! The ISO certification is one of the most widely accepted information security standards, demonstrating our commitment to safeguarding our global society through individuals, processes, and technology.
A critical part in building a world class global security organization includes testing their defenses by collaborating with external partners. TikTok continues to welcome security, privacy, and policy experts to review their code and algorithm at TikTok’s Transparency and Accountability Center. During the ISO certification process, independent third party auditors performed a series of rigorous checks to confirm TikTok’s global security, risk, and controls operations meet the highest standards. Core to this was evaluating how they protect their platform’s infrastructure, development, operations, and services, including:
- Demonstrating evidence of implementing and maintaining an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS) to safeguard data
- Validating a range of security controls to show TikTok’s alignment with security best practices
- Cross-functional collaboration across security, IT, legal, privacy, and HR teams to build a culture of security awareness
Obtaining ISO 27001 certification is another crucial phase in our extensive security path, which will continue indefinitely. TikTok is committed to bringing their efforts to the next level and leading the industry by continuing to invest, iterate, and uphold their commitments to preserve the thriving TikTok culture.
