In times of networked industrial systems and increasing digitalization, information security and cybersecurity are becoming increasingly vital for businesses. Even in the printing industry, it’s hard to imagine working without automated and digitally networked processes. In order to offer its customers the greatest possible protection of their data, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (HEIDELBERG) has implemented a comprehensive information security management system. This has now been externally audited by DQS GmbH and certified according to the international standard ISO 27001.
“This information security management system will also allow us to guarantee a high level of cybersecurity at HEIDELBERG in the future”, says Dr. Ludwin Monz, CEO of HEIDELBERG. “Continuous risk assessment of malware and other threats allows us to continuously improve the security of our systems and solutions.”
HEIDELBERG offers state-of-the-art, networked and highly automated machines, control software and cloud solutions for print shops. Support systems with built-in artificial intelligence can be used to automate processes, up to the implementation of autonomous printing. B2B platforms for consumables and spare parts, software for controlling the entire workflow in the printing process, and Internet-based remote diagnostics for machine maintenance are also included in the range of services. The successful HEIDELBERG “Subscription” contract models would also be impossible without comprehensive cybersecurity. In these cases, customers no longer pay for the press itself, but rather for the number of sheets printed.
As Dr. Monz says, “Over the past decades, HEIDELBERG has evolved from a conventional mechanical engineering company that offers the associated services to a technology company with a high proportion of digital processes, products and services. We consider this ISO 27001 certification as recognition of our efforts and motivation to continue. This proves that information security is integrated into the management and organization system of the HEIDELBERG Group, according to recognized principles. This means that we can live up to the justified expectations of our customers.
