Certified Vendor Programme

Achieve 9ine's Recognition for Privacy and Cyber Security Excellence and showcase your dedication to Safeguarding Data in an Evolving Digital Landscape

Elevating Privacy and Cyber Security Standards

9ine’s Certified Vendor Programme recognises organisations that take a professional approach to privacy and cyber security management. The certificate issued by 9ine demonstrates that the organisation takes its legal responsibilities seriously, seeks to improve its privacy and cyber protections, and responds responsibly to emerging trends, concerns and threats. The program does not certify that a particular organisation is legally compliant with any specific law. Compliance with data privacy and protection, and related law, is predicated on understanding what your compliance obligations are, evidencing this, understanding where your gaps are, and having a plan in place to remediate those gaps with the resources allocated, proportionate to the resources of the organisation and identified risk.

There are two components to our recognition program, the first relates to data privacy and protection; and the second, information and cybersecurity.
