Implico to Set Up Information Security Management System (ISMS)

Published 03 February 2017 | By Implico

Company aims to achieve certification according to ISO 27001 in Q1/2018

As digital transformation continues to advance, cyber security is becoming more important than ever before. Germany's new IT Security Act requires the operators of critical infrastructures to set up an Information Security Management System (ISMS).

While the Implico Group is not legally obligated to establish an ISMS, some of its customers are. Responding to its customers' increasing demands vis-à-vis their suppliers, Implico is now introducing such a system. For this purpose, the company's executive management has signed an ISMS mission statement.
