Data security essential
Protecting information is a top priority for Proximus, especially with regard to securing high volumes of sensitive information.

Data security is critical for the protection of companies, their customers and their partners.
The ISO 27001:2013 certification was awarded by Bureau Veritas Certification Belgium. Proximus took the following measures for the process:
- it evaluated its own information security risks, including the impact of detected threats and vulnerabilities.
- it designed and implemented a comprehensive set of information security controls and took other risk management measures to address security risks within its own cloud infrastructure and corporate environment.
- it implemented an overall program to ensure that the information security controls meet the needs of its customers on an ongoing basis.
