Nuremberg, November 25, 2020 – The Nuremberg-based full-managed service provider is now also ISO 27001 certified. As part of the ISO 27001 certification, the security-relevant IT and business processes in sales, consulting, installation, administration, maintenance and service of network solutions were audited by DEKRA. The audit confirms that the IT security measures and the information security management system of the abl social federation meet all requirements of the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard. The certificate confirms the abl and its customers the high value that information security has in the company.

Safety first

The more modern and visionary companies become, the higher the importance of information security must be hung. Whether companies, municipalities or private individuals – it is becoming increasingly important for everyone to take adequate security precautions to protect information from loss. Nobody can afford a possible business standstill due to attacks via the Internet or data misuse. Therefore, information security is indispensable and is the top priority – as it is for the abl.

Security creates trust

The information security management system (ISMS) according to ISO 27001 creates the framework and the prerequisites to protect and guarantee information and its confidentiality, availability and integrity. The international standard ensures the availability of the IT systems involved in the company processes and evaluates the implementation and effectiveness of the ISMS with the ISO 27001 certification – externally and objectively. “We offer our stakeholders, business partners, customers and investors the indispensable security that their confidential data is protected against misuse, loss and disclosure, and are continuously working on optimizing digital information exchange,” assures Benjamin Akinci, founder and CEO of abl, in the course of the current certification.
