PROSTEP certified to the ISO 27001 standard for IT security

Darmstadt, December 2016 – Following an extensive examination of information and IT security, the DQS has awarded PROSTEP AG ISO 27001:2013 certification. The Darmstadt-based PLM consulting and software house is thus a member of a select group of just 800 German companies to receive the coveted certification. This certifies that the company complies with the requirements set out in the standard not only in terms of the security of its IT systems but also with regard to how employees handle confidential information. "We are thus showing our customers just how seriously we take the subject of data security and that their data is in good hands," said Dr. Rainer Bugow, head of technology at PROSTEP, commenting on the certification.

Certification is not a one-off event but an ongoing process. PROSTEP's Shield Team , which was set up expressly to deal with this topic, has laid the foundations for the long-term safeguarding of information and IT security throughout the company and now has the responsibility of continuously enhancing awareness. As part of the continuous improvement process (CIP), it is intended that a number of measures designed to strengthen IT security be taken over the next few months. In the short and medium term, PROSTEP expects threats from external attacks to increase further and this will have an impact on IT use.

PROSTEP will continue to conduct internal ISO 27001 audits. The next external certification audit is scheduled to take place in September 2017.
