SK tes Certifies to ISO 27001:2022 Information Security Management Standard Across All Sites in Europe and Australia

RECKLINGHAUSEN, GERMANY / ACCESSWIRE / July 9, 2024 / SK tes, a global leader in IT asset disposition (ITAD), e-waste and battery recycling solutions, is proud to announce that it has successfully certified to the updated ISO/IEC 27001:2022 Information Security Management Standard at all its sites across Europe and Australia. This certification underscores SK tes’ commitment to the highest levels of information security, ensuring that customer data and company information are protected with the utmost integrity.

ISO 27001:2022 is an internationally recognized standard for managing risks associated with information security threats. Key requirements that companies must have in place to be compliant with ISO 27001 include:

Risk Assessment and Treatment: ISO 27001 requires companies to conduct a thorough risk assessment to identify potential threats to information security. Based on this assessment, organizations must then implement appropriate risk treatment plans to mitigate or eliminate these risks. This involves identifying the assets that need protection, the potential vulnerabilities and threats to these assets, and the impact and likelihood of these threats materializing.

Information Security Policies and Objectives: Companies must establish a set of information security policies and objectives that are aligned with their overall business goals. These policies should cover various aspects of information security, including access control, data protection, incident management, and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. The objectives should be measurable, achievable, and regularly reviewed to ensure continuous improvement.

Controls and Procedures: ISO 27001 outlines a comprehensive set of controls and procedures that organizations must implement to protect their information assets. These controls are detailed in Annex A of the standard and cover a wide range of areas, including physical security, network security, access control, cryptography, and supplier relationships. Organizations must select and implement the appropriate controls based on their specific risk assessment and security needs.

In addition to these key requirements, ISO 27001 also emphasizes the importance of continuous monitoring and auditing to ensure the effectiveness of the ISMS. Companies must regularly review and update their information security practices to adapt to new threats and vulnerabilities.

By achieving this certification, SK tes demonstrates its dedication to safeguarding information against unauthorized access, breaches, and other cyber threats.

Eric Ingebretsen, CCO of SK tes, expressed his enthusiasm about the certification: “Achieving the ISO 27001:2022 standard reinforces our commitment to providing a global service that meets the highest standards consistently, wherever you are in the world. Having a robust and audited Information Security Management System reflects our proactive approach to managing security risks and protecting our clients’ data.”
