ISO/IEC 9001:2000 and ISO/IEC 27001 certification for atsec information security AB
atsec information security AB announced certification according to ISO/IEC 9001:2000 and ISO/IEC 27001. Achieving these certifications is significant, since atsec AB is yet another atsec company that has introduced an integrated management system for quality and information security and to have gone through a formal audit and certification.
The goal of external audit and certification is to improve quality assurance and processes in the company. Achieving this goal provides a competitive advantage and increases the credibility of the company. This advantage can be especially helpful to a small company, because many large organizations use formal criteria as their only way of appraising a potential new business partner.
This combined certification puts atsec Sweden on par with other atsec companies (atsec U.S. and atsec Germany), which introduced integrated management systems for quality and information security and received their ISO/IEC 9001:2000 and ISO/IEC 27001 (BS 7799-2:2002) certificates some time ago.
