Digitalization is progressing further and further – with all its advantages and risks. Avoiding it has become virtually impossible for businesses. That is why it is important to know how to successfully use the chances that industry 4.0 brings with it while at the same time repelling the threats. Regulations for the security of information technology are playing a big role in this. One of them is the ISO 27001 – but why is a certification according to specifically this guideline worthwhile?
Nowadays, there are rarely any business processes that do not rely on an error-free IT. Establishing an all-round secured IT is thus vital not only for data centers, but also for office buildings, industrial sites or hospitals. Furthermore, there are plenty of regulatory requirements by now that dictate certain security guidelines. ISO 27001 defines the standards that are required for the launch, implementation, monitoring and improvement of management systems for information technology. A certification according to ISO 27001 states that these regulations have been fulfilled.
