In just six months, dbh has implemented an ISO/IEC 27001 information security management system.

The issue of holistic data security, including legal and resilience and protection against cybercrime, is essential for companies. Rapidly growing IT systems offer enormous opportunities for companies that want to make their processes more efficient and develop new business models. On the other hand, there is also an increasing risk of safety problems that can endanger the entire operation.

This is a topic that dbh Logistics IT AG (dbh) has become more and more concerned with over the years. For more than 40 years, the company has experience in operating central IT solutions in its own data centers. In order to underpin the demand for data and information security, dbh has been certified in accordance with ISO/IEC 27001 in the scope “Platform as a Service, including the data center infrastructure” in just six months.

Above-average information security management system at dbh

Dbh is particularly proud of a statement in the audit report: […] The entire information security management system has an above-average maturity level for an initial certification audit. Overall, all interviewees were found to be highly sensitive to information security and a high level of expertise […].

As early as 2007, the company introduced an initial security policy. Since then, all operational processes have been continuously developed in terms of safety and availability and have been transferred to all employees in flesh and blood. An important factor, which is why the ISO/IEC 27001 certification project could be carried out in just six months.

With the dbh Cloud on the safe side

When it comes to IT security, companies are increasingly considering so-called cloud services (keyword: outsourcing). dbh Logistics IT AG also offers this service under the name Advantage Hosting. Whether private, public or hybrid cloud, from dbh applications to partner applications to standard software such as MS Office – the right solution is easy to find.

MOL Logistics (Germany) GmbH (MOL) is already convinced of the dbh Cloud solutions. The logistics expert relies entirely on the Bremen specialists when it comes to IT. All IT systems from all German locations were outsourced to the dbh data centers. In addition to the CARGO ONLINE forwarding software,this includes all Office applications, e-mail systems, the financial accounting and warehouse management system.

“By outsourcing our IT systems to dbh, not only we, but also our customers, benefit across the board,” says Wolfgang Schmidt, General Manager (Administration) at MOL. “We can fully focus on our core business. And since we no longer hold any data with us, all customer data is also protected by dbh. The headache of which Trojan could compromise our data and that of our customers is a thing of the past.”

WHY ISO/IEC 27001?

The Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) carries out ISO 27001 certifications to check the quality of information technology systems and to document them to the outside world. For companies that want to outsource their IT, it is recommended to select providers for such a seal of quality. In doing so, it should be ensured that certification relates to the specific performance to be used.
