Arburg Obtains ISO 27001 Certification for its Information Security

As a pioneer of digitalisation in plastic parts production, Arburg has been voluntarily certified to DIN ISO/IEC 27001 since March 2023.

This globally recognised standard is proof that the machine manufacturer from Lossburg in Germany has implemented an effective information security management system (ISMS) in its information systems division and is doing its utmost to meet the high requirements of information security as well as the underlying security procedures.

IT security is a top priority here at Arburg and is being vigorously advanced by our highly qualified team,” says Jürgen Boll, Managing Director of Finance, Controlling and IT at Arburg. “The ISO 27001 certification is now proof in black and white that we are reliably documenting and constantly improving our information security processes and continuously strengthening our IT resilience.

Certified information security

Machine manufacturer Arburg is at the forefront of the industry with its voluntary ISO 27001 certification. IT security and data protection have a high priority for this innovative family company, both at its central production site in Lossburg and in its organisations at 35 locations in 25 countries around the world.

As this topic is close to our hearts and we already had a very good technical and organisational set-up, we were able to achieve certification in a record time of just six months,” explains Andreas Dümmler, Divisional Manager Information Systems at Arburg. “We also worked with certified IT service providers to achieve this and, in the process, rebuilt and documented our ISMS.”

Re-certification takes place every three years, and a detailed risk assessment of all IT services is carried out annually, an analysis of which is incorporated into the company’s own opportunity management. On top of this, there are internal audits, management evaluations and surveillance audits by TÜV Süd. As an internationally recognised framework, ISO 27001 creates the “guard rails” to advance further corporate information security based on processes, guidelines and policies. This is precisely what more and more customers, partners and suppliers are increasingly asking for and demanding.

Arburg ISO-certified in all important areas

Arburg is now ISO-certified in all important areas and transparently documents the relevant processes in associated manuals. The company’s certifications comprise:

  • ISO 9001 for quality management,
  • ISO 14001 for environmental management,
  • ISO 29993 for quality management in vocational and in-company training,
  • ISO 50001 for energy management, and
  • New: ISO 27001 for information security.
