TÜV SÜD AWARDS SAGEMCOM DR. NEUHAUS AND SAGEMCOM FRÖSCHL FOR STANDARDIZED INFORMATION AND SECURITY MANAGEMENT.
Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus and Sagemcom Fröschl, the leading system supplier for energy network operators in Europe, have successfully completed the ISO 27001 certification. TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH has issued the ISO / IEC 27001 certificate on 22.12.2016 to Dr. Neuhaus and Fröschl. As a result, Germany's leading smart metering solution providers have introduced the internationally recognized information security management system (ISMS) according to ISO / IEC 27001 across all locations. Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus and Sagemcom Fröschl use best practices for their security and risk management. The certification underscores the high importance that the companies attach to the information security and protection of their IT systems.
ISO 27001 is the internationally leading standard for information security management systems. It applies to private and public enterprises as well as non-profit organizations and defines the requirements for the introduction, implementation, monitoring and improvement of an information security management system (ISMS).
Security plays an essential role in Germany and Europe in the design and architecture of a smart metering infrastructure. Energy supply is classified as a critical infrastructure and customers do want to see their data best protected.
"We have deliberately subjected this complex process to ensure that our customers' business data and ITC infrastructures are protected by our tried and tested measures for security and risk control," said Andre Karnatz, Director of Administration and IT at Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus and Sagemcom Fröschl. In addition, the certificate confirms that the technical and organizational requirements of the IT basic protection methodology have been successfully implemented. "With the certification, we can ensure a high level of information security and will continue to evaluate and measurably improve it in the future", explains Gunnar Grube, Information Security Officer at Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus and Sagemcom Fröschl.
The fact that Dr. Neuhaus and Fröschl are effectively implementing the information security management system in accordance with ISO / IEC 27001 is now confirmed by TÜV SÜD.
