Integrated policy for information quality and security
Since 2016, Swascan has made Cybersecurity its core business, quickly becoming a reliable, recognised player in the sector.
For this reason, information security is an essential part of the corporate DNA and represents an indispensable factor when it comes to protecting its information assets and those of its customers.
In Swascan, security plays a permanent role in the daily operational life of the company and also during all phases of service provision: analysis, design and commissioning of the services provided as well as customer service, considered a primary asset for the company. Considered a natural evolution, the Swascan S.r.l. management team has decided to implement an integrated management system based on the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standards, together with the two extensions ISO/IEC 27017 and ISO/IEC 27018 related to the security of cloud environments and the protection of PII (Personal Identifiable Information).
Swascan undertakes to pursue a policy that places the security of information at the heart of the company’s operations, always maintaining its commitment to achieving the goals set, namely the satisfaction of all stakeholders and in particular of the Customer, while guaranteeing continuous improvement of the effectiveness of its Company Management System at the same time.
Purpose and Scope
Swascan S.r.l.’s Integrated Management System has the following scope: provision of SOC services, offensive security, development and operational management of the platform.
Swascan S.r.l. bases its business and the Integrated Management System on the achievement of the following major general goals:
- guaranteeing the best standards, optimising and rationalising company processes and tools;
- guaranteeing the effectiveness of the Integrated Management System;
- implementing state-of-the-art services in a consistent, ongoing manner, meeting customer requests and applicable mandatory requirements, guaranteeing the ongoing reliability, operational continuity and the most effective use of the company resources available;
- preserving the image of the company as a reliable, competent supplier in the best possible way;
- guaranteeing high levels of performance for the services provided.
With a more specific focus on information security, however, with this policy, Swascan S.r.l. intends to formalise the following goals:
- Protecting its information assets and those of its customers;
- Adopting measures to ensure staff loyalty and professional growth and increasing the level of awareness on security issues among its staff;
- Fully complying with the indications of current mandatory legislation;
- Implementing suitable Business Continuity and Incident Management solutions;
- Defining adequate security procedures and rules for the management of access controls to systems, from inside and outside the network, and of the physical and logical protection of systems with all the state-of-the-art technological tools available;
- Defining adequate procedures and safety rules for the supervision of networks and systems;
- Adopting a selective policy for the exchange of information, in particular with the outside world through the use of a specific classification of information.
All staff must work to achieve the security objectives when managing information.
The application of the management system therefore requires full participation, commitment and effective interaction of all human and technological resources. The continuous growth of the service level will be pursued through regular reviews, aimed at monitoring the pre-established goals and recognising any areas for improvement.
The company’s goal is to ensure an adequate level of data and information security in the design, development and provision of the service and related company services, through the identification, assessment and treatment of the risks to which the services themselves are subject.
Swascan S.r.l.’s integrated system defines a set of organisational, technical and procedural measures aimed at guaranteeing the satisfaction of the three principles underlying information security:
➢ Confidentiality i.e. the fact that information may only be known to those with the correct privileges;
➢ Integrity i.e. the fact that information may only be modified by those with the correct privileges;
➢ Availability i.e. the fact that information must be accessible and usable when required by the processes and users with the correct privileges.
Furthermore, in order to ensure effective application of the company policy, the implementation of the ISMS is based on the following principles:
- Satisfying customer expectations
