Your business is no one else’s
Here’s how we keep our
customers safe and secure
We never stop working to ensure LinkedIn is secure for your business.
We use a combination of industry standards and our own best practices.
Information Security Program
LinkedIn maintains a robust and extensive security program with policies and detailed security requirements that guide the program's execution. The objective of this program is to maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information, intellectual property, and systems of LinkedIn and/or its users, members, guests, employees and business partners while meeting industry standards.
LinkedIn policies, procedures, and standards are based on the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 27001. In addition, we use an independent third-party body to audit our compliance with leading industry standards periodically.

A full security monitoring and incident response program is in place to alert, investigate, triage and remediate security events. Our Incident Response team performs a full investigation to determine the scope and impact of any security event or suspected incident and coordinates with the relevant teams for remediation.
Secure Software Development
LinkedIn maintains policies and procedures to ensure that system, device, application and infrastructure development is performed in a secure manner. A full Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) framework, based on industry standards, is used to ensure secure design and engineering principles are integrated directly into the design and development process and are built into all products at LinkedIn.
