Listening to railways

We pioneer the use of fiber optic vibration sensing to deliver railway insights across multiple disciplines. We monitor track condition, detect trespass and cable security events, and alert operators to natural hazards such as landslides or rock falls.

We create a digital twin / SonicTwin® of entire rail routes, to deliver unparalleled historical, actual and predictive railway information. Using standard, often pre-existing, fiber optic cables we enable railways to make better decisions.

Sensonic are ISO27001 Certified

2023-05-18 · Daniel Pyke · 4min

We arethrilled to share Sensonic has successfully achieved the prestigious ISO 27001 certification for all our locations worldwide. Achieving this internationally recognised standard for information security not only demonstrates our unwavering commitment to protecting our client's data but also reflects our dedication to excellence in everything we do.

Johannes Nöbauer, CIO, states: “First and foremost, I want to congratulate my fellow ‘Sensoniacs’. This milestone would not have been possible without their collective efforts, diligence, and dedication to maintaining the highest standards of security and privacy. Our passion for safeguarding our information is a testament to our organisation’s values, and the trust our clients place in us.

As we celebrate this achievement, we also remember that the ISO 27001 certification is not just a one-time accomplishment. It signifies our ongoing commitment to continuously improve and adapt our processes, ensuring we stay at the forefront of data protection and security practices. We remain vigilant and steadfast in upholding our high standards, as clients depend on us to safeguard their valuable data assets.”

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is an international standard for information security management systems (ISMS). It was published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in 2005, and has been revised twice since then, most recently in 2022 which is the version we have just achieved. We were one of the first organisations to achieve this new revision.

ISO 27001 provides a framework for us to identify, assess, and control risks to our information assets. It is a process-based approach that requires us to establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain, and continually improve our Information Security Management System (ISMS).

The benefits of implementing ISO 27001 include:

  • Improved information security
  • Reduced risk of data breaches
  • Increased customer confidence
  • Improved compliance with regulations
  • Reduced costs
  • Improved business performance

ISO 27001 is a widely recognised standard, and our certification helps us demonstrate our commitment to information security.

Why is information security important?

Information security is vital as it protects the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. Confidentiality means that information is only accessible to those who are authorised. Integrity means that information is accurate and complete and has not been modified without authorisation. Availability means that information is accessible when it is needed.

Information security is important for several reasons. First, it protects the privacy of individuals. Second, information security protects the intellectual property of organisations. Intellectual property, such as trade secrets, patents, and copyrights, can be valuable assets that need to be protected from theft or misuse. Third, information security protects the critical infrastructure of organisations. Critical infrastructure, such as power grids, water systems, and transportation systems such as the railway, need to be protected from cyberattacks that could disrupt or damage them.

Information security is a complex and ever-changing field. However, by taking steps to improve and maintain information security, we can protect valuable information assets of both Sensonic and our clients and reduce the risk of security incidents.
