ISO 27001:2013 accreditation

Saab Australia has been awarded the coveted ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification after months of continuously working to build and optimise its Information Security Management System (ISMS). The certification supports Saab Australia’s existing defence and security business as well as strong growth into cyber services.

ISO 27001:2013 is an information security standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It specifies best practices and procedures on how a company can manage information security in a way that reduces overall risk.

This international accreditation means Saab Australia’s people, processes and technology have been formally recognised to provide the highest standard of information security available. The certification demonstrates that we can continue to be trusted with sensitive information and that the company is looking to continuously improve information security to its customers, suppliers and internal business units.

Throughout the rigorous certification process Saab Australia demonstrated its ongoing and systematic approach to managing and protecting company and customer data. ISO 27001 uses a top-down, risk-based approach to assessment and identifies the exact requirements and specifications for the most comprehensive Information Security Management System (ISMS).

 “Receiving the ISO 27001 certification is testament to our commitment towards security and further reinforces Saab Australia as a trusted partner for customers and suppliers. Well done to all the people at Saab Australia who work tirelessly to ensure we can receive and maintain this high level of certification." said Andy Keough, Managing Director Saab Australia.

To be awarded this certification, Saab Australia had to be validated by the independent audit firm DNV GL, which is a global quality assurance company.
