The most important of the latest Yandex updates. Part 2.

Yandex Metrica and AppMetrica participated in the annual audit of ISO 27001. According to the audit, Yandex Metrica and AppMetrica still meet international information security standards. ISO 27001 is a well-known standard for the Information Security Management System (ISMS). In particular, it defines how information security risk management processes should be constructed and what controls should be used.

This year the analysis showed that the risk management system in Yandex services is based on the best practices and is able to provide complete information protection. Yandex Metricа took part in this certification for the first time in 2019. Since then, the service regularly confirms its compliance with the world standards of information security.

Yandex continues to erase language boundaries on the Internet. Innovative development of Neural Networks allows Russian users of Yandex to watch video content in five other languages. When a user enters a query in Russian, relevant foreign videos will appear in the search results. Neuronetworks also perform simultaneous interpretation of the video you are interested in. This revolutionary feature makes Yandex a conduit to the world of quality foreign content.

And finally the latest news. Yandex started the filter «Mimikria». It is superimposed on sites that, according to the search engine, have a strong resemblance to some popular resources. According to Yandex, such similar sites deceive users and abuse their trust. To identify a non-original site, this algorithm evaluates whether the site has its own valuable functionality or content, how high the visual similarity to the original resource, etc. If the filter is applied, the site loses its rankings.

To remove the restriction, the website should no longer confuse the users or remove the obvious similarities with the popular site. The algorithm will trace the changes and the restriction will be gone within a month. Yandex Support Service reports that it checks all sites in turn and all violators will be affected.
