DataSeal - the Direct Marketing Association’s (DMA’s) own data security standard developed in conjunction with the BSI.
Whether you’re a data owner, supplier or business with customer data, third party marketing service provider or agency, this standard is an accessible, achievable and cost effective way to show you have the right information security measures in place.
Good news too - you no longer need to be a member of the DMA to apply.
DataSeal is the only recognised standard for information security management systems other than ISO27001. Importantly, it is faster and consequently less costly to implement so that you significantly de-risk your business in the shortest possible time with less disruption and cost to the organisation .
DQM worked closely with the DMA 5 years ago to develop DataSeal and since its launch we have helped over 85% of successful applicants achieve the DMA DataSeal standard. Our success and commitment has encouraged the DMA to make us the exclusive approved auditor for its important standard.
Our team of expert auditors will work hard to help you achieve the DMA DataSeal standard in the minimum timeframe. We start by understanding what type of data you hold and where, we then review your adherence to the standard and recommend how to fix any problems so that you are sure that you're ready for audit.
