Cybersecurity and securing against digital risk are now the top priority for any organisation. Companies with foresight are thus aware of the need to obtain documents confirming the quality of their services, with certification the end goal in a whole chain of activities.

ISO certification is an internationally recognised confirmation of a robust security system and a mature approach to protecting client data. The certifications just obtained by ERGO Hestia thus place it among Europe’s leading organisations.

The awarding of ISO 27001 and 27017 certificates to ERGO Hestia is the result of work within our long-term strategy to build the maturity of our information security management system,” highlighted Damian Jagusz, Corporate IT Security Officer and Head of ERGO Hestia’s IT Security and Compliance Management Team.

Implementing new technologies always involves security issues. These certifications are an additional confirmation of the fact that we have ensured adequate protection for our clients. We take this as a commitment to further development.” – he added.
