The External Information Certification Process refers to any area of an organization that can receive information from outside sources. Controls should be in place to assure that the person or system that brings in the outside information has the authority to do so. For outside databases, a certification process should be in place to validate the information source before it is brought into the organization. Each time the information is loaded, it should be screened for viruses and contaminants. Once the information is loaded, it becomes part of the organizations information assets.

Examples of outside information includes databases that support data cleansing tools for customer or vendor address validation and SIC code databases to assist in building customer hierarchies and a single view of a customer. Outside transactional data sources include when customers place orders using EDI or an order portal. These tools should be vetted and tested to insure quality information coming into the organization.
