Within just six months, dbh has implemented an information security management system that meets ISO/IEC 27001 requirements

The issue of maintaining comprehensive data security while ensuring legal compliance and system stability and protecting against cyber crime is a crucial one for companies. On the one hand, the rapid growth of IT systems offers fantastic opportunities for companies who want to design their processes more efficiently and develop new business models. On the other hand, this growth also increases the risk of security problems that may jeopardise the entire business.

This is an issue that dbh Logistics IT AG (dbh) has increasingly taken on board over the years. The company has over 40 years of experience running central IT solutions in its data centres. In order to back up this demand for data and information security, dbh has achieved certification in accordance with ISO/IEC 27001 in the area of "Operation of customer applications (platform as a service), including data centre infrastructure" within just six months.


dbh is particularly proud of a statement made in the audit report: [...] The entire information security management system exhibits a level of maturity that, for a first certification audit, is outstanding. Every person interviewed was found to treat the issue of information security with great sensitivity and demonstrated a high level of specialist expertise [...].

The company introduced its first security policy back in 2007. Since then, all operating processes have been continually developed with respect to security and availability and have become second nature to all employees. This is an important reason why we were able to achieve ISO/IEC 27001 certification in just six short months.


When it comes to IT security, companies are turning increasingly to cloud services (keyword: outsourcing). dbh Logistics IT AG also offers this service under the name Advantage Hosting . Whether it is a private, public or hybrid cloud, and from dbh and partner applications to standard software such as MS Office — finding the perfect solution is easy.

MOL Logistics (Deutschland) GmbH (MOL) has already been won over by dbh's cloud solutions. The logistics experts have complete faith in the Bremen-based specialists when it comes to IT matters. All IT systems at all German locations have been outsourced to dbh data centres. As well as the CARGO ONLINE forwarding software, this also includes all Office applications, email systems, the financial accounting and warehouse management system etc.

"Outsourcing our IT systems to dbh benefits not only us, but also all our customers across the board," explains Wolfgang Schmidt, General Manager (Administration) at MOL. "We are able to focus all our attention on our core business. And because we no longer store data on site, all customer data is also protected by dbh. All those worries about which viruses could compromise our data and that of our customers are now a thing of the past."

WHY ISO/IEC 27001?

The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) conducts ISO 27001 certification processes in order assess the quality of IT systems and provide documentation of this for the outside world. For companies who are seeking to outsource their IT systems, we recommend finding providers that have been awarded a quality seal of this kind. It is important to make sure that the certification relates to the specific service that would be used.
