Metaregistrarʹs Policy on Information Security ensures itʹs business continuity and minimizes the risk of damage by preventing security incidents and reducing their potential impact.

The Metaregistrar platform is designed and managed by a team of highly experienced engineers and is mostly based on the technology and experience from our sister company Mijndomein. The Mijndomein platform has an excellent track record for security and availability for the last 10 years, and is continiously improving their capabilities in this area.

The .frl gTLD does not require strict certification or industry compliance, however Metaregistrar and its subsidiaries are working hard to achieve ISO 27001 level within the next 2 years. An independent assessment report on security level and capabilities is planned within the next 8 to 12 months. As an additional service to its customers, Metaregistrar will allow high-profile clients to review the external assesment report or perform itʹs own security assessment if requested.

The policy uses the three main components to describe the measures: people, process and technology, a summary for each chapter is listed below:

· a description of roles and responsibilities concerning staff members and governance and resourcing of IT security
· a policy ensuring background checks, proper staff entry- and exit measures
