Wiesbaden, July 2017. The elaborate and complex certification according to ISO / IEC 27001 by TÜV Saarland guarantees national and international clients of Futura Solutions systematic information security. The related Information Security Management System (ISMS) has been emphasizing the availability, confidentiality and integrity of company data since 2015.

For the cloud service provider Futura Solutions, information security is an integral part of the business processes, which have been certified according to ISO / IEC 27001 since 2015. After the first two years the conclusion is positive. “The implementation of a globally accepted ISO / IEC standard is definitely more significant than local standards for cloud security. We are increasingly realizing this in case of requests which require a valid proof of IT security and protection of the transferred data before a contract awarding”, remarks managing director Schwadtke on the importance of the ISO certification for Futura Solutions. “We are well aware of the fact that we have chosen an above-average scope for the ISO / IEC 27001 certification, but to us, it was clear from the outset that the certification was not only a formal target, but an overall guideline for optimizing and structuring”. Not only parts, but the entire company is subject to certification requirements: Organization and design, development and quality assurance as well as the operation of the FUTURA®-Cloud – protection and availability at the highest level.
For an optimal preparation, specialists for data protection and information security from the DEUDAT company in Wiesbaden were brought in. They have followed the complex certification process closely and provided support as external data protection partners since then. Consequently, the management is being assisted with the annual audit and the quarterly internal IT workshops.
“Standardizing, documenting, and embedding security-relevant workflows and structures in our company’s daily business, is a permanent process”, says Ingo Krischker, manager for IT security (udis academy, Hamburg University, Regensburg University) and internal auditor for ISO/IEC 27001. “The comprehensive approach of ISO 27001, ensures that company standards are put into practice on all hierarchical levels”.
The ISO certificate was handed over by Jana Braun, head of department for ISO 27001, TÜV Saarland. TÜV Saarland is accredited by the DAkks (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH) and has the authority to certify ISMS according to ISO / IEC 27001.
