KERN Global Language Services successfully passed the audit and certification in accordance with ISO 27001:2017 in the area of information security.
Frankfurt am Main. Due to the increasing digitalisation of work-related processes, the issue of information security is playing an increasingly important role. Demands on companies are growing to comply with important standards relating to the security of (customer) data and information.
KERN Global Language Services has recently received the certification for the international industrial standard DIN EN ISO/IEC 27001:2017. It defines the requirements that an information security management system (ISMS) has to meet. The international standard defines how all information has to be protected and processed. Confidentiality, integrity and availability must always be ensured.
Dr Thomas Kern, a member of the Management Board at KERN Global Language Services, places particular importance on this matter: “Nowadays, information security is playing an increasingly important role, since many work-related processes are executed largely on a solely digital basis. With this certification, we therefore aim to show our customers that the processing of their data and information within our company is carried out in compliance with the highest information security standards.”
Scope of ISO 27001:
“Provision of translation and linguistic technology using artificial intelligence and configuration of automated processes and portal solutions supported by project management, cloud operations and a global IT infrastructure.”
