ICL-KME CS successfully implemented Information Security Management System that meets all requirements of the international information security standard ISO/IEC 27001 and the Russian standard GOST R ISO/IEC 27001. Following the results of the certification audit, the respective certificates were issued by an independent Certification Association «Russian Register».
In 2014, ICL-KME CS started working on a project to build and implement Information Security Management System (ISMS) covering key business processes of the company. Within the framework of the project, a broad range of challenges were successfully addressed including evaluation of the current information security environment at the company, identification of immediate threats, analysing and processing information security risks and personnel training. Experts from business units and the majority of other departments were involved in regulatory system development and ISMS deployment. To implement a number of processes within ISMS they used Integrated Information Security Management System, an in-house product developed by ICL Group.
In the course of the final audit conducted by an independent Certification Association «Russian Register», there were no significant inconsistencies identified. Information Security Management System developed by ICL-KME CS conforms to requirements of both the international information security standard ISO/IEC 27001 and the Russian standard GOST R ISO/IEC 27001.
The fact that ICL-KME CS has been awarded these certificates confirms that ISMS deployed at the company enables to efficiently protect corporate information resources from real threats and to meet customers’ requirements to information security on a long-term basis.

As a result, we developed a plan of action to take these processes to a new advanced level.”
