Our latest post was about the mission Blocktopus is on, to find the sweet spot between delightful User Experience and the friction that regulations introduce in the field of ICOs/STOs. This post will communicate the steps we’ve taken in order to harden Blocktopus and to communicate that we use the state of the art processes in order to protect the data we are honored with.

“Data is the new oil” is a phrase that people in the Technology field are using very often. This phrase is capturing the one side of data, the value they carry, but it misses the opportunity to underline the responsibility that this data comes with. Over the last years there have been numerous scandals with an enormous amount of data being leaked, with Facebook being their king so far, with the very recent examples of Cambridge Analytica and the one that Spotify and Netflix were part of. Blocktopus was founded by people that are obsessed with Privacy, and as a result Privacy and Security are the top priority in our organization and will always be.

In this direction, we are proud of have being certified with the ISO 27001, which certifies us that we are following the state of the art practices in order to secure the assets that are processing the data that our users trust us with. Blocktopus was also certified with the ISO 9001, in order to communicate to its ICO/STO clients that we are following the best practices when it comes to quality control as well. Last, Blocktopus was scanned extensively for more tan three weeks by Audax Security and no data leak occurred nor any unauthorized action was performed during this effort. That was a huge acknowledgement that at Blocktopus we have been passionately committed to protecting what you love, your data.
