Augsburg, May 30th, 2022 – Rosenberger Optical Solutions & Infrastructure (Rosenberger OSI), an expert in fiber optic connections, cabling solutions and infrastructure services, announces that the company's Information Security Management System (ISMS) has been certified according to ISO standard 27001 after a successful audit. With this, the company is setting a strong signal for the security of information, data and systems and adds another milestone for the digitalisation offensive launched at the beginning of 2021. “The certification reflects the importance we attach to protecting data - our own and that of our customers. Our ISMS defines a set of guidelines and processes that ensures the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all data that is processed,” explains Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director of Rosenberger OSI.
ISO 27001 certification is the leading international standard for ISMS. It specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continuously improving an information security management system within an organization. This also includes requirements for assessing and addressing information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization. The requirements set out in the standard apply to all certified organizations, regardless of their type, size or nature.
Optimization of internal processes and improved risk management
With the achieved certification, Rosenberger OSI underlines the high importance of information security and the increased protection of internal information assets. In addition, business processes were optimized with regard to IT security. This resulted, for example, in a more active identification of vulnerabilities of the internal IT systems through a more structured information security risk management.
Benefits for customers in the context of audits and internal security
On the customer side, the certification increases confidence in working with Rosenberger OSI, as it documents the company's pronounced awareness of cyber risks. In addition, customers benefit from the elimination of individual audits of the company's IT landscape, as these are replaced by external audits by Rosenberger OSI. Furthermore, many potential new customers require a certain IT security standard, which is now clearly visible through the certification. “By complying with the specifications from the standard, the fulfillment of legal requirements, such as data protection, is increasingly simplified. Another positive side effect of the certification is that it also enables us to obtain improved conditions from insurance companies and similar business partners,” says Managing Director Thomas Schmidt.
