LEONHARD KURZ Fighting against Cybercrime
More brazen, more organized, and more technically sophisticated – cybercriminals targeting both individuals and businesses. Theft of operating data, failure of IT services, or extortion can cause major economic damage, so prevention is essential. As a one-solution partner, it goes without saying that we handle the sensitive data of our customers and partners with great care. Moreover, we would like to provide you with evidence that we comply with strict international safety standards.
As early as 2019, we introduced an Information Security Management System (ISMS) for this purpose, with which we put our established processes to the test and, if necessary, revised them and introduce new processes. At the same time, our Information Security Officer is also responsible for certifications in the area of information security. LEONHARD KURZ was thus able to objectively and credibly demonstrate its professional handling of highly secure data through TISAX® assessment for the automotive industry and certification in accordance with the industry-independent ISO/IEC 27001 standard.
Certified According to ISO/IEC 27001 – Internationally Leading Standard for Information Security
Since October 2021, LEONHARD KURZ has been certified in accordance with ISO/IEC 27001 in the area of 'Operation of the KURZ digital services infrastructure'. ISO/IEC 27001 is the leading international standard for information security management systems and is thus the highest standard currently available for ensuring information security within a company. LEONHARD KURZ thus verifiably proves the continuous planning, implementation, monitoring, and improvement of its information security system. The aim is to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our customer data at all times.
Assessed According to TISAX® – The Information Security Standard in the Automotive Industry
With VDA-ISA, the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) has defined a standard catalog for information security requirements for car manufacturers and their service providers and suppliers. In terms of content, the questionnaire covers the topics of secure processing of confidential information, protection of prototypes, and data protection in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The security level of LEONHARD KURZ Stiftung & Co. KG is assessed according to VDA/ISA TISAX (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) with protection level "Info very high", "Proto parts" and "Avail Very High" (Assessment Level 3). This means that the KURZ Information Security Management System (ISMS) has proven itself in an in-depth, comprehensive on-site assessment carried out by an independent audit service provider.
