Munich, 17 April 2020 – You could say that 2W Technische Informations GmbH & Co. KG has managed an information and data security hat-trick! It has now followed up its certification to BSI 27001 and TISAX with ISO 27001 certification - impressive and consistent further proof of the effectiveness and performance of 2W’s information security management system.
In 2015, 2W was one of the first mid-sized companies in Germany to obtain Federal Office for Information Security Baseline Protection Certificate A for all its IT systems in accordance with ISO 27001. This confirms to its customers and business partners how important the handling of sensitive data and information is to the company.
In 2018, 2W continued its customer-orientated business strategy, which focuses on the protection of information with stringent security requirements, with BSI Certificate B and TISAX certification, the automotive industry’s Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange.
Now, following an intensive two-day audit by DEKRA in March 2020, the ISO 27001 certification of 2W’s information security management system (ISMS) sends out a strong message that information, data and systems at 2W are secure.
2W Managing Directors Uwe Düring and Michael Süßl commented on this achievement:
“Highly available and high-performance IT, that is secure in every respect, is an absolute prerequisite for our business and forms the backbone of the reliable business relationships we foster with customers, partners and our staff. With this in mind, we are investing continuously and with foresight in state-of-the-art hardware and software, communication and network components, and also in training our staff in the professional and ‘barrier-free’ handling of IT, whether they are at the office, visiting clients or working from home.
‘IT performance’ and ‘IT security’ are inextricably linked. Our ISMS certification to ISO 27001 by DEKRA demonstrates the exceptionally high resistance of our structures, processes and behaviour to the loss of data, the misuse of confidential information and downtime of our business operations. In a nutshell: resistance to the massive damage caused by cybercrime - damage that entails serious legal and financial consequences, but can also lead to a breakdown of trust among customers and partners.
What is more, unaffected system performance is a vital guarantee of business, communication and delivery availability in this unique time of crisis, characterised by increasing digitalisation, and therefore also sends a positive signal to our business partners and staff.”
