[post_content] => Implico has achieved another milestone by becoming certified according to the ISO 27001 standard for information security management systems (ISMS). Specialising in the optimisation of logistics and business processes for oil and gas downstream companies, Implico has further expanded the diverse range of solutions available to customers.
The certification by TÜV Nord confirms that the company’s internal processes and regulations comply with the ISO 27001 definitions, guaranteeing a high level of information security that is subject to regular testing and continuous improvement.
In order to meet the required standards, Implico has invested heavily in the documentation and optimisation of its work and business processes. As of 20 April 2019, its OpenTAS, iGOS, IT and SAP hosting have been recognised as complying with the ISO 27001 standard. In the course of the two-stage audit, TÜV Nord did a comprehensive check of information security at the company’s headquarters in Hamburg; Implico convinced the auditors with its resilient information technology, exemplary documentation and strong security awareness. Additionally, Implico has clear regulations for information transfer and holds regular employee training sessions.
“The ISMS certification is a big accomplishment for Implico,” adds Nina Ehlert, information security officer at Implico. “We have invested heavily in our information security and we are happy that our efforts have yielded fruit. We will continue to build upon this from now on – steadily revising processes, implementing measures and making advancements. Our ambition for security excellence assumes that we always aim for an exemplary safety level.”
“In an information-driven industry like oil and gas, security and confidentiality are paramount,” adds Stephan Buhre, managing director at Implico. “The ISMS certification classifies Implico as a trustworthy partner with whom even sensitive data is in safe hands. We have heaved security at Implico to a new level.”
