Stackfield receives further ISO certifications

2 min read  •  March 05, 2024

The security of your data is our top priority. Because using Stackfield for your task and project management should not only be efficient, but also secure. That's why data protection and information security are our top priority. For that, we implement a wide range of measures and naturally fulfil the legal requirements of the GDPR. To prove this, we underwent an ISO 27001 audit lasting several days by TÜV Süd in December 2022 and thus received certification for our information security management system (ISMS). But that wasn't enough for us. At the end of 2023, we went one better and have also been certified to ISO 27017 and ISO 27018. But what does that mean?

You can find out more about ISO 27001 and our path to certification in our blog post.

The ISO certifications 27017 and 27018 in detail

The new certifications are sub-standards of ISO 27001, which regulate the security aspects of cloud services. The three standards cover a total of over 200 information security requirements that must be addressed for certification.

ISO 27017: Information security in the cloud

ISO 27017 deals with information security in the cloud. It supplements ISO 27001 with 37 additional requirements that are particularly relevant in cloud environments. Among other things, the standard defines specifications for responsibilities and controls that must be adhered to when providing cloud services. These security controls aim to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information while taking into account the particular challenges of cloud computing.

ISO 27018: Protection of personal data

The protection of personal data is a highly topical and sensitive issue. ISO 27018 focuses on the protection of this data in the cloud. The guideline specifies how personal data may be handled without violating the privacy of users. It covers aspects such as transparency, information exchange and retention periods. A total of 51 other requirements must be met for this certification.

What advantages do you have as a Stackfield user from the certifications?

The certifications confirm our commitment to the security of your data. They prove that we have implemented a robust information security management system and that we have taken the necessary technical and organisational measures to protect user data. As a user, you can therefore rest assured that your data is safe with us - even in the cloud.
This makes Stackfield one of the few providers of digital task and project management tools that can produce all three certifications.
