Information security services provider HELP AG has announced that it has recently been awarded the Information Security Management ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification.

As per the certification, Help AG implemented over 110 security controls across a number of areas. These include technical security, supplier relations, business continuity, and compliance, amongst others.

Stephan Berner, CEO at Help AG, said: "We understand that there are some reservations that regional businesses have about trusting security controls to service providers. Our ISO27001 certification enables us to guarantee the right level of controls exists and is audited by an external agency at regular intervals."

"This together with initiatives such as delivering all services locally, offering an on premise deployment option, fully recording all access, and strictly adhering to all local laws has helped us address customers' concerns and challenges regarding management and access to sensitive data by our MSS team."

HELP AG's MSS division delivers a subscription-based services include forensic analysis, log management, operational event reporting and security platform management.

"Even large enterprises in the region lack the financial and human resources to have specialized teams of IT security experts. This leaves them with little time to continuously monitor their infrastructure for cyber threats and makes incident response a tremendous strain on already overworked employees," adds Berner.
