Market research platform AYTM (Ask Your Target Market) announced today ist has earned ISO 27001 certification, making it one of the first market research platforms to do so. The certification is for the information security management system (ISMS) supporting AYTM’s survey platform, as well as for their proprietary panel PaidViewpoint, in order to ensure the utmost quality of data security for market researchers and survey respondents. ISO 27001 is one of the most widely recognized, internationally accepted independent security standards.

All customer-facing business processes and services are included within the scope of the ISMS. This includes all critical and sensitive AYTM customer information, as well as the personal information and responses of PaidViewpoint survey respondents and respondents coming from third-party panel partners. These processes include:

  • Survey questionnaire development
  • Survey application development
  • Survey deployment
  • Survey data collection
  • Survey analytics
  • Contracted survey creation, management, analysis and reporting
  • Survey respondent personal information
  • Survey respondent responses to surveys

Lev Mazin, AYTM’s CEO and co-founder says “As the keepers of important market research data for many Fortune 500 clients with access to over 25 million respondents, we must have best-in-class security. In achieving our ISO 27001 certification we have taken our program to the next level. By showing we are able to adhere to the very strict standards set by ISO, we are able to offer our clients guaranteed unprecedented protection.”

For customers’ peace of mind, AYTM and PaidViewpoint have established a formal program to continue being audited and certified to this ISO standard going forward, and this will consistently be performed by an independent, third-party auditor. AYTM’s compliance with the ISO standard was certified by A-LIGN, an ISO certification body accredited by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB).
