Following a comprehensive external audit carried out by Interdigicert Europe – CERTI-TRUST group, WINK Technologies has been certified as an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 compliant.

This ISO certification confirms that WINK has maintained a strict Information Security Management System (ISMS) for its business processes, and that information security and client confidentiality are an integral part of the foundation of the firm’s activities.

The ISMS is a set of policies, procedures, and processes that ensures a high standard of security, in line with legal requirements that WINK employees uphold and support by IT systems and structures throughout the company.

Wissam Chihane, Data & IT Security Director at WINK, highlights the importance of the confirmed status:

“Given the nature of our business, information security has been and will always remain a top priority for WINK and all its employees, especially with many operations moving to online platforms and remote working, and cyber-attack risks looming greater than ever. This certification demonstrates our commitment to maintaining and ensuring the highest standard of data protection.”


Wissam highlights as well the top seven among numerous reasons why WINK had to comply with the standard:

  • BRING order to the business, especially for fast-growing businesses, where roles, responsibilities and processes had to be defined very precisely,
  • ESTABLISH an information security culture through awareness,
  • DEFEND against cyber attacks and reduce the cyber security & data breach risks,
  • PROTECT all forms of data, whether digital, paper-based or in the Cloud,
  • RESPOND to evolving security threats through risk assessments,
  • GAIN a competitive edge through enhancing WINK’s value proposition and improving its credibility,
  • MEET contractual obligations by demonstrating WINK’s formal commitment to comply with information security measures, which guarantees our clients that best-practice information security methods are in place.

Christian Mokbel, CEO and founder of WINK added: In a more and more competitive market, it is sometimes challenging to find something that will differentiate you in the eyes of potential customers!

ISO 27001 could be a unique selling point that can set us apart from our competitors, especially if new clients want their data to be treated with great care.
