SKIDATA offers comprehensive solutions, such as for access systems, parking management, and self-service ticketing.
As the world becomes more digital, a growing number of customers are seeking easy-to-use, convenient cloud-based services to meet their needs. At the same time, a high level of protection and security for data in the cloud is demanded.
The ISO 27001 standard consists of a set of best practices that constitute an effective information security management system. By certifying to ISO 27001, SKIDATA demonstrates that cyber-security is a company-wide priority.
SKIDATA offers various innovative solutions, such as online parking reservations, digital and on-site payments, and the Pre-Event Check. All of these solutions handle a significant amount of sensitive data. This data must be protected against unauthorized access, hacker attacks, and mishandling.
Meeting High Standards: ISO 27001 Certification and Information Security Risk Management
By being certified against ISO 27001, SKIDATA demonstrates high standards for managing information security risks, both in the cloud services and in all processes connected to sensitive data.
An effective Information Security Management System (ISMS) has been set up and procedures are established to pursue the most important goals of the ISMS: confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our customer's data.
Regular reviews and internal audits ensure continuous improvements of the ISMS.
Enhancing Security and Data Protection: ISO 27017 and ISO 27018 Certifications
In addition, SKIDATA’s ISMS is also certified to ISO 27017 and ISO 27018. Both standards are extensions to ISO 27001 and address security challenges specifically in the areas of cloud services and data protection.
ISO 27017 mainly focuses on the relationship between customers and cloud providers. It outlines the expectations customers can have from their provider and the information providers must maintain for their customers.
ISO 27018, on the other hand, relates to data protection and data privacy requirements. The standard serves as a guideline for implementing measures to protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
Applying ISMS to Global Cloud Infrastructure and Beyond
SKIDATA's ISMS program is applied to global cloud infrastructure, technical support, and cloud product development, covering all critical processes in the delivery of SKIDATA cloud services.
The ISO 27001, 27017, and 27018 certifications were carried out jointly with sister companies Nagra Digital TV and Kudelski Security, allowing all parties to benefit from existing expertise.
All of this ensures SKIDATA’s ability to manage and mitigate potential security risks, ensuring the continuity of its operations and the protection of its customers' data.
"Protecting customer data and managing it securely, whether physically or in the cloud, is a top priority at SKIDATA," said Willem-Jan Balk, VP - Business Line Management & Marketing.
The ISO 27001 certification thus identifies SKIDATA as a company with effective Information Security Management.
