Our commitment to information security
Much of Kantar Public’s survey work involves the validation and management of personal level data from large scale surveys.
We take the issues of data protection and information security very seriously and have excellent security controls that integrate our data and network security policies and procedures with the security requirements of our clients.
Kantar Public is compliant with and certified to ISO 27001:2005 the Information Security Management Standard (certificate number: 0498).
Kantar Public has notified and is compliant with the 1998 Data Protection Act (Z2413668). We abide by professional codes of conduct established by the Market Research Society and Social Research Association, to ensure that all data is kept strictly confidential.
We maintain robust physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to store and secure client information from unauthorised access and use, alteration and destruction. Our own policies and procedures have been developed to ensure all data held by Kantar Public is stored and managed in a secure and controlled way, and help achieve compliance with the ISO 27001 information security management standard.
We have a nominated individual responsible for Information Security and Data Protection who is supported by specific departmental representatives who have responsibility for their individual departments. Part of this responsibility includes ensuring security and confidentiality is maintained on an ongoing basis.
