In order to pursue its strategic commitment to cybersecurity, ALIPA Group, the specialist for lifting and packaging solutions, confirms the reliability of its implemented processes by obtaining the ISO 27001 certification.
Internationally recognized and issued by the certification organism Euro-Quality Systems, the ISO 27001 certification proves a good information security management. It provides companies of all sizes with clear guidelines for planning, implementing, monitoring and improving information security. It is therefore the most important certification in the field of cybersecurity.
The treatment of risks related to IT systems has always been a priority subject within the ALIPA Group, but only a few companies have so far obtained the ISO 27001 certification. “We are therefore even more proud to have fulfilled the criteria for obtaining it”, says Fabienne ANNET, HR & Quality Manager and head of the ALIPA Group’s integrated management system. An information security management system that is compliant with the ISO 27001 standard is constantly being optimized and adapted to new circumstances. This way, weaknesses can be identified before they become a security flaw.
Such an information security management system certainly protects the company against undesirable interruptions, the consequences of possible computer attacks, data loss or abuse. With the ISO 27001 certification, ALIPA Group therefore wishes to support, among other things, its sustainable development.
Implementation of external requirements
“Today, it is also important to meet external requirements in terms of European regulations, particularly in the context of the new General Data Protection Regulation”, explains Fabienne ANNET. The ISO 27001 standard ensures that data is both used optimally and stored securely. The information security policy thus contributes to protection against operational risks – a priority requirement that auditors and European regulations impose on companies.
A solid basis of trust
For ALIPA Group, another objective of certification is obviously to establish a solid base of trust with its customers. The fact that a company treats information conscientiously is an essential criterion for many customers and partners in their decision whether or not to share their data. “We can now present ourselves as a reliable service provider that has obtained the certification in this respect. This will certainly help us to retain our existing customers, but also to attract new ones“, concludes Mrs. ANNET.
ALIPA Group is composed of 6 companies active in lifting and packaging: CODIPRO (swivel hoist rings), NO-NAIL BOXES (collapsible boxes in plywood and steel for the industry), LIFTEUROP and STAS (lifting material and accessories), AllPack Services et WaluPack Services (industrial packaging). ALIPA Group, the expert for lifting and packaging solutions, employs more than 150 people in 3 different countries: the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Belgium and France. They post a consolidated turnover of 27 million euros.
