As a leading provider of services and software solutions in innovation management the protection of our customer data assets is one of our major obligations. ITONICS is continuously working to guarantee the security of data and strives for the highest standards in this field.
Therefore, we announce that ITONICS is one of the first innovation management software companies that has achieved the accredited ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification! We have committed ourselves to the strict criteria and requirements of this internationally recognized standard in information security. Within the context of an overarching information security management system, we systematically manage information security and associated risks in order to meet ever-increasing demands for greater data security and compliance requirements, such as the GDPR. Hence, it demonstrates the ongoing engagement of ITONICS to consider information security as a fundament of reliability and trust that has now been independently audit-proven. The adoption of an overall information security management process with continued internal and external reviews forms an integral part of the ITONICS business practices to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information continuously.
In relation to the above subject, significant changes on how to handle data privacy will be implied by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), that will become enforceable from 25 May 2018 following a two-year transition period. ITONICS has gone to great lengths to comply with the new requirements. In essence, GDPR forces enterprises to follow a uniform scheme in collecting and processing data – specifically personal data. Any company processing or retaining personal data of any citizen in the EU must comply with the new data privacy mandate and comply with certain needs such as “data minimization”, the proper processing of the data collected, the required transparency for data owners as well as the purpose limitation and proportionality. ITONICS commits itself to fully comply with the requirements of the GDPR. The achievement of getting certified in ISO/IEC 27001:2013 underlines this ongoing endeavor and ensures execution.
All staff members of ITONICS are personally engaged in treating data protection as a critical factor for the success of our business partners and uncompromisingly implement it in their daily service delivery – anytime and anywhere.
