Security and Data protection

Post boxes

Together with technology and IT security, information security protects the valuable, and personal data that is our company's bread and butter. As importantly, employees are trained and kept up to date on information security process and general awareness.

Security is a major factor to consider at the development stage of all new products, and we conduct our own security tests on existing products, as well as using third parties for stress testing of existing and new products.

Every day, Dun & Bradstreet works hard to earn trust from clients and partners by protecting data through strong security. Data is safeguarded by encryption and latest generation anti-malware. The systems are monitored 24/7 and Dun & Bradstreet has policies and procedures in place for authorization to gain access to the different systems and information.

At Dun & Bradstreet data protection also involves data processing, and this is handled in line with strict internal regulations and in compliance with EU and local laws. Rapid technological development makes the current EU Directive 95/46/EC outdated. As of 2012, the EU has been revising the Directive and establishing a modern and harmonized data protection framework across the territory.

The reformed Data Protection Regulation will apply from May 25, 2018 and a project group within Dun & Bradstreet is in place to ensure compliance. Data privacy is also of utmost importance and our strict data security measures again reassure our clients and partners that we can be trusted with personal data.

Dun & Bradstreet has appointed a Group Data Protection Officer (DPO) effective February 2017. The core duties of the Group DPO is to manage the network of DPO’s within Dun & Bradstreet with an associated audit function as well supporting Dun & Bradstreet's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Program.
