LANCOM Systems fulfills ISO/IEC 27001

An important milestone for more information security

We are pleased to announce that LANCOM Systems has successfully documented and certified compliance with the ISO/IEC 27001 standard in the areas of LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC) and Service & Support processes. This certificate underlines our continuous commitment to the highest information security standards and the protection of sensitive data.

In an increasingly networked and digitalized world, ensuring information security is of central importance. For LANCOM Systems, the protection of our company, our customers and our sensitive data is a central concern. Every LANCOM employee comes into contact with sensitive data in their day-to-day work. Protecting this data is therefore an essential task for every individual at LANCOM Systems.

The Information Security Management System (ISMS) regulates our information security procedures. We strengthen information security in our company by introducing guidelines and standards and establishing corresponding processes. In concrete terms, this means that we implement and monitor continuous measures to constantly improve our information security. Our ISMS is based on the internationally recognized ISO/IEC 27001 standard, which defines the framework for the development and implementation of an effective management system.

Directives, guidelines, and standards are a central element of our ISMS. These include the procedure for dealing with (potential) security incidents, strict password requirements, detailed information classification, and the Clean Desk & Clean Screen guidelines. These measures ensure that sensitive information is always protected and security incidents are handled quickly and effectively.

When creating our processes, we ensured close integration with our parent company Rohde & Schwarz. We worked closely together, particularly in the areas of global corporate security directives and corporate standards. This collaboration has led to the creation of the LANCOM Information Security Policy for Employees and the supplementary IT Security Policy.

Our current scope of the ISMS includes the LANCOM Management Cloud as well as the Service & Support processes to ensure a comprehensive security architecture. This not only secures our internal processes, but also the cooperation with our customers and partners.

For further information on the ISMS, please contact Heiko Herrberger. Further information on the topic of information security can be found here.

We would like to thank you for your trust in LANCOM Systems and look forward to continuing our successful cooperation.
