Bonn, 30th of April 2019
HYPE Innovation is delighted to announce that it has received its ISO 27001 certification for its information security management system (ISMS). The certificate acknowledges HYPE's commitment to providing clients with the highest standards of information security management. Following an extensive audit process, the certification was issued by TÜV Saarland.
In general terms, the ISO 27001 standard serves to establish, implement, and continuously develop a functioning information security management system (ISMS) in companies. Among other things, data should be adequately protected and the availability of IT systems ensured. The context of the company is also taken into account by ISO 27001: the decision as to which measures are to be implemented is based on an individual risk analysis. The assessment and implementation of measures is then followed by a detailed independent audit of operations and the information security management system.
Many of HYPE's clients are ISO 27001 certified organizations, and as such they have to ensure data security among supplier organizations, too. HYPE's certification makes their lives easier as data security audits are now carried out by an independent third party (TÜV Saarland).
John Rumpf, HYPE's Chief Information Security Officer, said
"At HYPE we deal with all kinds of confidential data: personal user data as well as IP-relevant innovation information. Our certification now proves that we live up to the highest standards in information security management and that clients can rest at ease. At the same time, it helped us at HYPE to align many data security processes that were in place before, but not standardized yet."
