GERMANY : Dachser It Certified To Iso 27001 [TendersInfo (India)]

(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dachser has had its central IT services, computer centres, infrastructure and IT departments certified against the internationally recognized standard for information security, ISO/IEC 27001:2005.

Independent inspectors from TUV SUD (the German Technical Inspection Association) confirm that Dachser's information security management system is of the highest standard. Thanks to the certificate, customers can be certain that their data are in safe hands with Dachser. After all, the company's forwarding and warehouse management systems, as well as its eLogistics Internet applications, are defined and programmed in-house by Dachser's central IT division in Kempten, which then makes them available worldwide. The result is uniform and highly integrated systems.

"Customers do not just send us data. They also trust us to treat their sensitive business information responsibly. As an internationally operating logistics provider, we need to comply with these high standards of information security worldwide and be able to prove that we are doing so," is how Christian von Rutzen, Dachser's team leader for IT security, explains the decision to undergo certification.

Certification to ISO/IEC 27001:2005 covers all aspects of information security, ranging from technical areas such as virus protection, spam defence and the security of Internet applications to system reliability and emergency planning and on to organizational aspects such as confidentiality agreements with external IT service providers and consultants. The standard requires a risk management system to be in place at all levels to enable the plethora of risks to be appropriately classified and managed. Above all, certification to ISO/IEC 27001:2005 is not designed as a snapshot but as an ongoing process of improvement. Only those that work on their security processes consistently will be able to pass the annual surveillance audit and ultimately be able to renew their certificate.

"The ISO 27001 certification is a milestone for our IT," comments Stefan Selbach, manager of Dachser's information technology division. "Modern supply chains rely on intelligent, failsafe IT systems. With core IT systems and elogistics Internet applications that are uniform, highly integrated and now also certified as secure, Dachser is well equipped to meet the current and future needs of its international customers."
