With infrastructure and services that include robust data protections for all customers, enterprises like Google are able to invest in security measures that might be challenging for businesses to attain on their own.  

We’re pleased to announce that Google Analytics and Google Analytics Premium have earned the independent security standard ISO 27001 certification. As one of the world’s most widely recognized standards, ISO 27001 certifies the compliance of the systems serving Google Analytics and Google Analytics Premium.

Assurances like these provide users with additional confidence and peace of mind when they use Google Analytics.  As Rob Jackson, Head of Elisa DBI, Havas Media explains, "Our clients take data security extremely seriously. Having Google Analytics attain ISO 27001 certification further strengthens our trust in the product and that our client's data is being protected at the highest standard."

Our compliance with the ISO standard was certified by Ernst & Young CertifyPoint, a member of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF). The validity of certificates issued by Ernst & Young CertifyPoint is recognized in all countries with an IAF member.
