Berlin, 22 July 2016 – The PSI Group has been awarded DIN ISO/IEC 27001 certification in accordance with information security management system requirements. Achieving the standard certifies that the Group’s central infrastructure has implemented high security standards that also meet the requirements of critical infrastructure operators – an important customer group for PSI.
As part of the 2015 transition to Group certification, PSI AG and, in particular, several business units in the field of critical infrastructures were awarded certification. The scope of certification includes the development and operation of control systems and software solutions for providers, industry and infrastructure operators as well as the performance of ancillary services. Plans to expand to further business units are set for 2017. Group certification is based on the certification first achieved by PSI subsidiary PSI Logistics GmbH in 2013, which was simultaneously renewed.
Amongst others, the information security management system tested ensures PSI system and data privacy, integrity and availability. The successful audit was carried out by TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH. The PSI Group has also been certified according to quality standard ISO 9001 since 1994.
On the basis of its own software products, PSI AG develops and integrates complete solutions for energy management (gas, oil, electricity, heat, energy trading), production management (mining, metals, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics) and infrastructure management for transport and safety. PSI was founded in 1969 and employs 1,650 persons worldwide.
