ITC service provider Sycor offers ISO-certified information security to its customers
Protecting information is a key business objective of the Göttingen-based ITC service provider Sycor. Now this is backed up by the internationally established ISO 27001 certification. The Sycor Group's Technology Services division convinced the auditors with the stable structure of its information security management system in a multi-level certification process. Thus the full-range IT service provider has taken another important step in the direction of effective quality assurance.
A comprehensive security concept is an absolute must for IT service providers and their customers in the cloud computing era. That is why the Technology Services division of the full-range ITC service provider Sycor had its information security management system audited by TÜV Hesse. The Technology Services (TS) division provides information and communication technology services for customers of the Sycor Group, such as consulting and the development, implementation, and operation of IT infrastructures, cloud services, IT systems, and customer-specific IT solutions.
ISO 27001 certification, which has been in effect since January of 2017, attests to the security and quality of business processes for customers and partners: "We not only offer our customers quality in service provision, but also comply with internationally recognized security standards," says TS Division Manager and Vice President Dr. Frank Wilkes. Michael Kunze, Chief Security Officer at Sycor, adds: "ISO 27001 certification acknowledges our regulated risk management and proves that our customers can fully rely on us when it comes to information security." The ISO 27001 certificate is valid for three years. Regular surveillance audits will be conducted during this time.
Information security is a top priority for us. Since January of 2017, this is confirmed by TÜV Hesse with the ISO 27001 certificate. The Sycor Group's Technology Services division convinced the auditors with the stable structure of its information security management system in a multi-level certification process.
