Square announces ISO 27001 certification

Jan 12, 2022

Square is excited to announce we’re ISO 27001 certified.

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is the most internationally recognized standard for information security management. As a management standard, ISO 27001 has comprehensive requirements for active executive leadership involvement across areas such as policy, process, records, ownership, risk management, resourcing, and communication.

How did we achieve this?

To become certified, Square’s compliance was validated by a third-party audit firm who extensively reviewed our information security management system, demonstrating our ongoing and systematic approach to information security.

What does this mean for our Sellers and Partners?

Achieving this certification validates the strength and effectiveness of Square’s information security management system (ISMS) and signifies our commitment to securing both company and customer data.

Security has always been a top priority for Square and this certification is a major milestone that showcases our ongoing commitment to protecting our systems, our sellers, and their customers. With this certification, Square joins an elite class of global enterprise organizations with mature information security practices.
