There is always room for improvement!

We have defined the integrated management system policy applied to standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001, and ISO 45001. The policy is appropriate to the nature, scale and impacts of our activities, products, and services. It includes commitments to comply with all applicable legal and other requirements we subscribe to, to prevent harmful environmental impacts, and continually improve the integrated management system effectiveness. The policy provides a framework for setting and reviewing objectives and targets for quality, environment, health, safety, and information security.

To ensure we keep on track for continuous improvement, the integrated management system is regularly reviewed in internal and external annual audits.

Booming digitalization increases information security risks for companies. At GISGRO, the certified information security management system guarantees a high level of information security for our own operations, as well as managing our clients’ information assets. We want to be vanguards of information security in our industry.

The starting point of the development of our information security comes from the requirements of legislation, our clients, and other stakeholders. In all our operations we protect the usefulness, integrity, and confidentiality of information. The purpose of information security management is also to maintain operations in state of emergency, while securing the information assets of our clients. We regularly evaluate the risks, monitor the information security system and changes in the environment, and constantly develop our operations and improve the information security management system.

We ensure compliance and continual improvement of the information security system, and make sure the personnel have the needed knowledge and resources to fulfill the requirements of the information security policy and guidelines. Management sets an example of safe procedures and communicates the importance of information security to the stakeholders. The management team also ensures that the information security policy and guidelines lead the work at all levels of the organization.
