SOGET obtains ISO 27001 certification

SOGET, a software publisher, designs, develops and operates solutions for the logistics, port and customs performance of its customers. Today, the company’s entire software production is ISO 27001 certified.

Cybersecurity, an essential link in the durability of SOGET’s systems

By aligning itself with international information security management standards through ISO 27001 certification, SOGET is further extending the protection it offers its customers against the risks of abusive and malicious use of information, thereby guaranteeing the confidentiality, integrity, availability and privacy of the data transported on its Infrastructure.

Every day, more than 25,000 people use SOGET solutions worldwide. For one shipment of goods, no less than 40 documents, authorisations and declarations are exchanged by nearly 25 different players. SOGET’s digital platform processes more than half a million pieces of data per day.

This certification attests to both the high level of security of the infrastructure and the services offered to companies for which data connectivity remains a vital issue, both in terms of organisation and business continuity.

“ISO 27001 certification is the culmination of the operational excellence programme initiated at SOGET and consolidates the company’s position as a trusted partner for businesses. Cybersecurity issues have become a vital necessity for performance. Beyond certification, we want to see real awareness and the implementation of good practices that are adopted by all. Information security management is now a collective issue”.

says Hervé Cornède – President of SOGET.

A guarantee of continuous improvement

ISO 27001 certification establishes a solid methodological framework by setting up a Security Management System, the objective of which is to continuously improve the security of SOGET’s systems. Regular audits will also ensure that a high, efficient and effective level of security is maintained.

A dedicated team has been working on the subject and has enhanced the Information Security Management System already in place at SOGET. This ISMS includes an Information Systems Security Policy, which is a real guideline for continuous improvement and meets three basic principles:

  • prevention and reduction of information security risks to protect our assets and those of our customers, in particular by creating an information security culture and protecting our systems,
  • compliance with applicable regulations,
  • implementing operational procedures and measuring their effectiveness to meet internal and external requirements.

“Security has been a core concern at SOGET for many years. It was important to have our efforts recognised by obtaining this certification. It took us 13 months of hard work, 114 measures and 80 documents to achieve our goal. It is also a rewarding adventure that advocates continuous improvement, risk and quality control, as well as the challenge of keeping this certification in the long term, a challenge that we intend to take up.”

adds Grégory Perre – CISO of SOGET.
