Retarus Press Release
Retarus attains ISO 27001 certification
KPMG Cert confirms advanced maturity of the information security management system
The new ISO 27001 certification is in addition to the numerous general and sector-specific IT compliance certificates which Retarus already possesses, including SOC1/SOC2, TISAX, PCI-DSS and ENS. ISO 27001 certifies an information security management system (ISMS) which is run according to best practice and continually improving, thereby complementing the related SOC1/SOC2 framework (ISAE 3402/ISAE 3000).
The scope of applicability for the ISO 27001 certificate comprises the development and operation of the Retarus services in Munich and the data center at the same site. The certificate issued by KPMG Cert, which is valid for three years, will be provided to customers while the Statement of Applicability (SOA) is available on request.
Florian Korhammer, Senior Vice President Delivery at Retarus, points out: “Over the past years, we have been raising the level of maturity in our ISMS continuously. With this ISO certification, we have achieved another important milestone in making our IT compliance portfolio complete. Especially when it comes to the public sector in Europe, organizations often seek out ISO-certified providers.”
Philipp Deml, Head of IT Group Compliance at Retarus, adds: “In line with our integrated approach to certification, we are planning to combine our annual SOC1/SOC2 audit with the ISO audit in the future. At the same time, we now anticipate being able to fulfill the most stringent compliance requirements – even in the most demanding customer projects – with significantly reduced effort.”
