Winkhaus receives ISO 27001 certification
Stay on the safe side: In Winkhaus, authorities and operators of critical infrastructure now have a partner that meets the requirements of ISO 27001. This simplifies the award process if investments in an electronic locking system are to be made. Operators of critical infrastructures (KRITIS) must provide special protection for their business processes in order to ensure that the population will be taken care of, even in the event of disaster. This is intended to prevent major failures in the security of supply in the face of the growing threat of cyber attacks. According to the Critical Infrastructure (KRITIS) Ordinance, this applies to companies in the energy, information technology and telecommunications, water and food, transport, health and finance and insurance sectors. To this end, companies in the relevant sectors establish an information security management system (ISMS) to patch up weak points within the structures and minimise security risks. The internationally recognised ISO 27001 standard defines criteria for the establishment, introduction, operation, monitoring and continuous improvement of an ISMS.
