SC-Networks Awarded ISO Certification 27001 for Highest IT Security Standards
With the award of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification by TÜV Hessen, SC-Networks can now provide its customers and partners with official proof of the security and quality of its IT systems and business processes.
The e-mail marketing and lead management software Evalanche has been certified by TÜV Süd in the areas of functionality and data security since 2011. The certification in accordance with the leading international standard for information security management systems now confirms compliance with the highest IT security standards across the entire company. During the certification audit, the auditors for SC-Networks registered absolutely no inconsistencies.
ISO 27001 offers a systematic, structured approach, through the implementation of which companies can boost the availability of IT systems, ensure the integrity of operational data and better protect confidential data. To fulfil the requirements of the ISO 27001 standard, SC-Networks implemented organisational measures as well as a multitude of technical measures to demonstrably improve security. The Starnberg-based company spent approximately one year preparing for the audit for the certification of its information security management system (ISMS), supported by data protection and information security officers from management and technology consultancy activeMind GmbH.
