CSF Computer Solutions Facility AG is celebrating one of the most important landmarks in its company history: In December 2015 the IT company obtained official ISO 27001 certification – a leading norm for information security management systems (ISMS) in the international field. This has enabled CSF Computer Solutions Facility AG to certify its IT products and IT services as well as its own company processes and thus to ascend to the premiere league: only 135 companies in Switzerland have been awarded ISO 27001 certification.
In an era of whistle-blowers and hackers, information security has become the crown jewel for companies and organisations from all walks of life. After all, information leakage can cause tremendous damage – from marred reputation in the public sphere to loss of trust with customers and business partners to liability actions against company managers or members of the board. ISO 27001 helps CSF Computer Solutions Facility AG to underscore its premium standards of comprehensive information and data security – both internally and externally.
Herbert Spettel and Markus Haas, the owners and managing directors of the company, are overjoyed by the ISO certification: “As a small company, this places us in the premiere league and underpins our philosophy of Swiss devotion to quality and customers.” The chief benefits for customers of CSF Computer Solutions Facility AG include minimisation of risks as well as on-time identification of threats. The ISMS (information security management system) set-up allows us to treat sensitive information in a clear and structured manner. “The ISO certification thus bears out our many years of experience and commitment in the field of information and data security,” Herbert Spettel explains.
CSF Computer Solutions Facility AG was established in the year 1993. Today the IT company employs 16 employees and a global team of freelancers. Its core competencies include IT products and services, IT development and professional software development. The portfolio of customers and sectors is multi-layered – from banks and insurance companies to medical practices as well as translation companies and agencies. “The IT solutions we work out for our customers are tailor-made based on the business environment and processes involved,” says Herbert Spettel. He explains that the vital purpose of IT solutions is to meet the primary requirement of the customer: simplifying the day-to-day business.
