ICIG Business Services, the shared service center within the International Chemical Investors Group (ICIG), has successfully achieved its ISO 27001 certification in March 2022 after two years of intensive planning and focused execution.
With its two offices in Wuppertal and Frankfurt/Main, ICIG Business Services offers one-stop solutions, from competent IT consulting and the conception of networks and servers to the implementation of IT landscapes and IT services – optimizing work processes and increasing economic efficiency for its customers on a permanent and sustainable basis.
By having subjected itself to the ISO 27001 certification scheme, ICIG Business Services underlines its focus on cyber security. “This certification clearly shows our commitment to provide secure, reliable and best-in-class services to our customers”, says Martin Zaiser, CEO of ICIG Business Services.“
ISO 27001 is an internationally accepted standard that describes the requirements for implementing a management system for information security (ISMS). It also comes with a set of more than 100 mandatory security controls that need to be implemented prior to certification.
While ICIG Business Services has now successfully achieved its initial certification, work continues to continually raise the overall level of security. “Attackers do improve their methods – and so must we”, says Christoph Haas, Head of Group Information security for ICIG Business Services.
As mandated by the certification scheme, annual surveillance audits will take place to ensure that continual improvement of the information security management system and the implemented security control continues. “This is a great achievement for us, and our customers will definitely benefit from this certification as well. Not only today, but also in the long run”, states Martin Zaiser.
