Sembach receives ISIS12 certification
A certification audit according to ISIS12 took place at Sembach Technical Ceramics at the end of March. This makes the ceramics specialist the first company in the industry to be certified for this information security management system.
IT and information security have played a large role at Sembach Technical Ceramics for a few years now. For this reason, the company has now risen to the challenge of installing an information security management system with ISIS12, which guarantees the complete documentation and protection of all security-related data in the future.

ISIS12 certification takes place in twelve individual steps. In addition to the creation of a corporate guideline for information security, it also includes raising the awareness of employees and above all the establishment of an internal information documentation structure.
Sembach Technical Ceramics decided to tackle the complex certification according to ISIS12 at the end of 2017. By March 2019, the ISMS team, in close collaboration with an external information security officer, prepared an information security policy, password policies, an IT handbook, and emergency management guidelines. With the completion of the certification audit, the company is now the only one in the industry that has an ISMS certificate according to ISIS12 and thus demonstrably guarantees its partners and customers the highest level of data security.
The family-run SME attaches great importance to the continuous improvement of internal processes with the involvement of all employees. The employees have their awareness raised and are trained in how to deal with valuable information for the company in regular information security briefings and training sessions.
Special software from the ISIS12 security cluster shows where further optimization measures must be carried out. CEO Martin Sembach sees the voluntary certification of his company as an important step into the future: “IT and information security has long been one of the most important topics on the agenda of the present. The ISIS12 certification helps us to structure our processes even better, to document them and to identify potential for improvement.”
