Schlieren, 1 July 2022: Axians is expanding its information security management system in Switzerland and is now certified to ISO/IEC 27001:2017 guidelines in all cyber security-related services.

For more and more companies, safeguarding the confidentiality, correctness and availability of IT systems, applications and stored data is becoming a challenge that is difficult to solve, because cyber attacks are not only steadily increasing, they are also being carried out ever more professionally.

In order to offer its customers effective and comprehensive protection against threats from cyber space in the long term, VINCI Energies and its brands Axians and Actemium in Switzerland have greatly expanded their existing range of services in many areas, created new organisational units and made substantial investments. The increase in security in the “Axians Cloud” and the creation of an IT/OT Security Operation Centre jointly run by Axians and Actemium are just two examples.

Axians has had an ISO 27001 certified information security management system in Switzerland for several years. To ensure that the new services also meet the same high standard, they have also been certified according to ISO/IEC 27001:2017.

«For us, it is absolutely essential that our entire portfolio in the area of cyber security meets the highest standards. Our customers must be able to rely on the maximum possible protection at all times. Thanks to the expansion of our information security management system, we are setting the ideal framework conditions for this.» specifies Güven Zorba, Head of the Business Area IT & Managed Services of Axians in Switzerland.

The ISO/ICE 27001 certification complements the recertifications in the areas of quality management (ISO 9001), occupational health and safety management (ISO 45001) and environmental management (ISO 14001), which were also recently successfully completed.
