NCC Group announced as TikTok's Project Clover trusted technology provider
Today, we have been announced as the independent, third-party, security provider for TikTok’s Project Clover - a program focused on creating a reinforced secure enclave for TikTok user’s data in Europe and the UK.
Our objective scrutiny, monitoring and assurance on this project means that TikTok’s 150 million users in the UK and Europe, along with Governments and authorities, can have additional confidence that data is being kept safe and secure.
NCC Group will provide independent checks and monitoring of TikTok’s European data security measures and independently audit its data controls and protections, monitor data flows, provide independent verification and report any incidents.
NCC will also provide ongoing managed security services for TikTok’s security gateways, performing real-time monitoring to identify and respond to any suspicious or anomalous access attempts and help ensure the continuous integrity of its security controls operations.
Stephen Bailey, Global Director of Privacy at NCC Group, says: “We're proud that TikTok has recognised NCC's cyber security track record and expertise and chosen us as the independent third-party security provider on Project Clover. Our objective scrutiny, monitoring and assurance means platform users in Europe and the UK can have confidence in the enhanced data security standards that TikTok is setting, which go above and beyond European regulatory requirements.”
Mike Maddison, CEO at NCC Group, says: “Our collective purpose at NCC Group is to create a more secure digital future. Our independent, objective scrutiny will give European and UK users, Government cyber security authorities and data protection regulators the additional assurance and confidence that their data is being kept safe and secure. We are excited about being asked to be involved in such an amazing, groundbreaking project that underscores our technical leadership in cyber security.”
