Jokey receives Information Security Management System certification
ISO/IEC 27001 is the leading international standard for ISMS. It is recognized as the most important Information Security Management System certification. With this certification, TÜV Rheinland confirms the successful implementation of the ISMS developed by Jokey in accordance with the standard. Central elements are confidentiality, integrity and availability of information and data. Elementary processes are clearly defined and standardized, guaranteeing protection in the handling of sensitive data. The certification also creates clear guidelines for the implementation, monitoring and improvement of information security at Jokey.
Auditing in two stages
The first certification according to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 requires a two-stage audit. Jokey successfully passed the first stage at the beginning of November 2020. TÜV Rheinland recognized the ISMS implemented at Jokey as qualifying for certification. This is a prerequisite for admission to the second stage. Due to the coronavirus, this took place as a remote audit lasting four days at the beginning of December 2020 and included a detailed review of the reliability of the ISMS. The scope of the ISMS includes the provision of IT infrastructure, IT support and ERP development by the IT department in Germany. Part of the ISMS are all IT employees involved in the specified tasks at the sites in Gummersbach, Wipperfürth, Sohland as well as the HR department of Jokey Holding GmbH & Co. KG.
A sustainable company needs reliable IT
"With the globally recognized information security according to ISO/IEC 27001, we at Jokey send a strong signal to our partners, customers, stakeholders and employees about the security of information, data and systems," emphasizes Marc Antrecht, CIO of the Jokey Group. Especially in times of the global coronavirus pandemic, it has become clear that plastic packaging is part of a system-relevant supply chain and international trade networks depend on its reliable distribution to secure the daily supply of the population. "As one of the leading manufacturers of plastic packaging, we must be able to absolutely rely on resilient information technology and its group-specific requirements in our plants as digitalization increases; a stable ISM not only creates confidence internally and externally, it also protects us from unwanted interruptions or even specific attacks," affirms Marc Antrecht. The customized Jokey security concept is continuously updated and adapted to changes. In a next step, information security-relevant topics will also be identified in other areas of the company in addition to the IT department. "The topic of information security is very comprehensive," explains Sidney Engelberth, Information Security Officer at Jokey. „For this reason, we first started in the IT area to standardize and establish processes relevant to information security. This allowed us to create the basis for expanded application in other areas."
