Home  /  Press releases  /  Schober Information Group Germany receives first TÜV certification

For its transparent and data-protection-compliant management of information security in the company, TÜV SÜD awards the leading marketing service providers in Europe with the security certificate according to DIN ISO 27001:2013.

Ditzingen, 21. April 2015 – The highest safety standards have always applied to our daily work with data at Schober. This enormous diligence has paid off: the Schober Information Group Germany has now been certified with the TÜV SÜD seal according to DIN ISO 27001:2013 for its Information Security Management System (ISMS).

The internationally recognised certificate – valid from 14 April 2015 – confirms that the Schober Information Group Germany has a very strong sense of responsibility in dealing with data and complies with all requirements forming the basis of the testing process.

The ISMS is a list of procedures and rules within an enterprise that serve to permanently define, manage, control and maintain information security as well as continuously improve it. The ISMS was certified at Schober in March by independent TÜV SÜD auditors after evaluating a number of criteria and scopes of application such as planning, development, operation and sale of products as well as the solutions and services in the target group addresses, marketing information, marketing technologies and marketing services segments.

„We work with data from thousands of companies every year and know that this means we have a great deal of responsibility. We have met this responsibility for over 65 years and take great care to provide data of all sorts with maximum protection,” explains Ulrich Schober, CEO of the Schober Information Group. “We have developed many innovative methods to further automate the four processes and allow them to function more securely. The recognition from TÜV SÜD accordingly encourages us to continue with our structures and processes.“

All services and processes of the Schober Information Group comply fully with the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Our own data protection officer, for example, ensures the proper safekeeping and archiving of all sensitive customer data, and Schober gives priority to the issue of security far beyond the privacy aspect. With the TÜV certification, the Schober Information Group Germany also provides third parties (legislators, employees, suppliers, customers and partners) with proof that security is not only an integral part of all business processes, but is also continuously monitored, with any security risks being eliminated immediately and structures and processes documented transparently.
