Our Datacenter and Network connectivity provider LambdaNet Communications Germany AG has now been awarded the globally acknowledged standard for information management security, documented by the IT certificate ISO 27001 which was presented by the German TÜV SÜD on November 06th, 2007.
This award reflects LambdaNet´s commitment to information security. The standard covers a functional security organization and related ability to flexibly implement information security in the company. It makes sure that IT processes and resources are organized according to the SLAs concluded with both internal and external customers. At the same time, change management as a pivot of IT management thus becomes more calculable. As LambdaNet already applies a process management system, the company management decided to introduce a process-oriented InformationSecurityManagementSystem (ISMS) according to ISO 27001 and to advance it up to certification level. More than 100 different guidelines from areas such as organizational security, incident management, risk management as well as other legal stipulations must be met in order to receive this certificate. The certified company e.g. should work in a process-oriented way and take all organizational measures as well as technical systems required to protect corporate valuables such as customer data or corporate know-how. Legal requirements must be met and the availability of electronic processes in the company must be assured. Certification of LambdaNet was provided by TÜV SÜD, a leading international service provider with more than 11,000 employees working in more than 600 offices in strategic fields such as industry, mobility and human beings. Specialist teams of TÜV SÜD provide optimization of technology, systems and know-how to enhance the competitiveness of global customers such as LambdaNet. Our Partner Lambdanet: Today we are surrounded by a variety of different computer systems which have become an integral part of our work. As LambdaNet´s business processes rely on IT systems, standard software and proprietary software, the usage of such systems involves hidden risks which can result either from careless usage or from the criminal activities of unauthorized persons. LambdaNet´s IT Security Guideline is the target defined by management for all employees and external suppliers when dealing with information security risks or implementing precautions for the reduction of risks, explains Mohammad Salameh, LambdaNet Security Officer. He further emphasizes it is vital for the company to consequently adhere to these guidelines in order to persist against competition and to meet high level customer requirements. We are excited about our new ISO 27001 certification which for us is an independent confirmation of our efficient IT security management.
