As digitization progresses, information security is becoming increasingly important in companies. While new technologies offer versatile opportunities on the one hand, IT risks are coming to the fore on the other. Increasing digital networking and the associated complexity of information technology lead to an expanded area for attacks.

Especially in the sensitive area of data protection, enormous risks can arise. In a company-wide collaboration, it is therefore important to ensure IT security. This is where the internationally recognized standard for information security ISO/IEC 27001 comes in. By introducing an Information Security Management System (ISMS), IT risks are made visible and manageable.

Anchoring information security in companies

By proactively designing a secure IT landscape, you generate additional value for your customers and suppliers.

Anchoring IT security in your company preserves and improves its external image. Compliance with requirements, be they legal, contractual or regulatory in origin, creates trust and binds your customers in the long term. By counteracting the breach of applicable DSGVO rules and data protection regulations, the ISMS helps you avoid the loss of sensitive data. In this way, you minimize the risk of financial damage that could lead to the inability of your own company to act.

Another advantage for you: External (customer) audits for the proof of legal requirements are no longer necessary due to established processes and assigned responsibilities. The ISO/IEC 27001 standard is valid worldwide and provides independent and all-encompassing information about your company’s own security situation.

Are you pursuing the vision of an ISO/IEC 27001-certified company or are you striving for a change in your data security? With our experience we accompany you along the preparation process, design your ISMS with you and help you to overcome the barriers to the audit. We are happy to assist you and look forward to hearing from you!
