Antura receives ISO 27001 certification for information security

Antura has been awarded certification to the internationally recognized information security standard, ISO 27001, a result of the company’s conscious and concerted efforts in this area.

Information is one of the most important assets of any organization. Information vanishing, confidential data being stolen and important documents being damaged – all of these can have serious consequences for any operation. It is therefore extremely important that all systems containing valuable information are protected using an Information Security Management System, or ISMS. 

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized standard for information security, and it encompasses three aspects: 

  • Confidentiality

  • Integrity

  • Availability

In October 2016, Antura was awarded certification to ISO 27001:2013.

–Our ISO 27001 certification confirms that information security is now a natural and integral part of our daily processes, and that we run our operation in accordance with the prevailing standard, says Patrik Strömbeck, CISO, Antura Group.

Intertek is one of the world’s leading companies in the certification of products and management systems. In 2016 Antura has undergone a comprehensive certification process, during which Intertek has meticulously reviewed Antura’s information security management system.

–Antura has demonstrated a well-developed and well-implemented ISMS, and the company’s ISO 27001 certification is the result of its conscious, successful efforts in information security, says Berndt Roslund, Lead Auditor at Intertek, about the system audit.

High demands on information security 

For 15 years, Antura has been successfully delivering the Antura Projects PPM tool – a complete solution for project, portfolio and resource management. Customer demands in information security have increased in recent years, and globally it is now regarded as a matter of course for a supplier to meet high demands on information security.

–Nowadays our customers place serious demands on information security, both as regards Antura and our products. For our larger customers who operate on major international markets, it is absolutely crucial that we can prove we can meet the requirements in this area, says Patrik Strömbeck.

Several years ago, Antura made the strategic decision to develop and implement a management system in accordance with the recognized system in place today, ISO 27001. On completing the system audit, Intertek confirmed that Antura’s management system met the necessary criteria. Berndt Roslund sums up Antura’s work on ISO 27001 certification as follows:

–One success factor is that Antura’s management has acted in an exemplary manner, with great commitment and visibility throughout the entire process. This has assured the buy-in and distribution of Antura’s ISMS which I believe an operation needs to achieve success in this area.


”Antura has demonstrated a well-developed and well-implemented ISMS, and the company’s ISO 27001 certification is the result of its conscious, successful efforts in information security.”
