Information security and privacy management

Techstep has a strong commitment to privacy, security and transparency and is currently establishing a management system built on the ISO standard. The goal is to further raise security awareness in the organisation, and ensure that appropriate technical, organisational, people and physical security controls are in place. The management system formally implements a systematic risk-based approach to information security based on the internationally recognised standard ISO/IEC 27001 and will include all processes related to privacy and the GDPR.

Data privacy through GDPR

We work in compliance with national laws of the countries in which we operate, as well as with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In addition, principles from application software security are applied to ensure Techstep designs secure products.
