DB Video is the first audio-visual company in Belgium to obtain an internationally renowned privacy and security certificate
Flemish audio-visual producer is at the forefront of information security with ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification
At a time when cybersecurity is the biggest concern for businesses, governmental authorities, hospitals and organisations, DB Video has taken the next step in information security. Recent figures show that about 60% of companies are affected by cybercrime. It is impossible to imagine doing business without secure data management and data policies. This is what broadcast and video production companies have to deal with on a daily basis. “We’re used to processing data according to strict standards, clear procedures and guidelines, but now that we’ve obtained an official international certificate, we’re one step further in our growth chart”, DB Video’s team says.
It’s not surprising that DB Video isthe first and only audio-visual event and video producer in Belgium to obtain the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certificate, joining the exclusive group of companies with such a guarantee. By fully integrating renewal and innovation as well as taking into account the needs of society and companies during the national lockdown, DB Video has grown significantly in recent years. The company is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, with 48 employees and many freelancers. On an annual basis, it boasts no less than 2,500 productions, 60 per cent of which are broadcast and 40 per cent are for the web or events.
“We’re extremely proud of obtaining the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certificate”, says Dimitri Beyaert, Founder and CEO of DB Video. “It shows our commitment to delivering the highest quality to our clients. Implementing security measures seems logical, although it does require employees to work in a thorough and secure way. This certificate is an important recognition of our entire team’s hard work and dedication. It motivates us to continue improving our quality and service standards. It gives us a step up, not only compared to big institutional players but also to smaller organisations, and it will support our growth story further.”
The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certificate defines requirements for setting up, implementing, maintaining and continuously improving an information security management system within an organisation. With this certificate, DB Video can show its clients and other stakeholders that for all three brands (DB Video, MOTCHA and Webble-Up) the company uses a certified and secure information security process. Client, visitor and participant data is protected at all times according to this international standard, whether it is for events, broadcasts, streaming services or video recordings.
Focus on innovation
During the pandemic, Webble-Up, DB Video's hybrid streaming platform, expanded rapidly. This rapid growth also raised pressing questions about data security. “There is no better guarantee than officially obtaining the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certificate”, DB Video’s team explains. They suited the action to the word and set to work for 18 months to officially ensure the security of all processes, documents and data. Now that the company has obtained the certificate, it will not sit back but is determined to maintain these high standards and continue to innovate in order to provide clients with the best possible and secure service.
As a leading Belgian company, DB Video now offers a range of services such as live event streaming, broadcast, studio recordings and post-production. The company has built up a strong reputation for providing high-quality audio-visual solutions to clients in different sectors, including companies, the media, governmental authorities and non-profit organisations. Our clients includes NATO, the Flemish and European Parliaments, European Space Agency, Amazon, BNP Paribas Fortis, Mediafin and many more.
“Information security is of great importance to ensure the day-to-day continuity of an organisation and to protect, process and ensure confidential personal and business data. In addition, clients, government bodies and other stakeholders are increasingly asking or demanding that their information be protected against data leaks or other external threats”, says Mikis Goos, IT Innovation Manager DB Video.
