Hansab Achieved the Highest Information Security Level

In April 2016, Hansab Group companies acquired ISO 27001 and ISO 14001 certificates from Bureau Veritas. In addition, the ISO 9001 and ISO 20000 certificates were renewed. Hansab is one of the very few companies in the Baltics to have all four, taking the lead as one of the top players in business innovation and security field.

ISO 27001 standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system. It also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization.

With the ISO 27001 we can provide our customers and partners documented proof that we have carefully planned, implemented and verified data security systems. In addition, we can optimise our business processes, since many security incidents will be prevented and the tasks of every employee are exactly defined.

In addition, Hansab Group companies acquired ISO 14001 certificate, which sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. ISO 14001 helps us improve our environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of the customers.

Hansab Group service and quality manager Algo Puusepp commented, that developing management systems is continuous work in all Hansab companies and the certificates are never the main goal. “Getting certified is just one step along the way. It gives us the guarantee that we have covered all the processes in the company. An added value comes from receiving feedback from outside of our organisation. “

Hansab always thrives to develop a holistic processes approach, not just focus on the individual parts. “These standards are a hallmark for implementing and improving our work methods. We have never used external consultants for creating a development plan. The best fit for us has been to establish changes and procedures according to our needs. Such framework is considered as a big advantage.”
