When It Comes To Protecting Data, Cisco Services Goes All-In

March 7, 2017 - 7 Comments

Yes, it’s official! Cisco successfully completed the ISO 27001 Certification across our entire services business worldwide. This important certification reinforces our commitment to protecting Cisco and our customers. With Cisco as a trusted partner, customers can be confident that every possible safeguard is in place to protect their data.

Every single one of us has been directly impacted or knows someone who has been the victim of data breaches that have become an unfortunate norm in headline news. For a business, that breach loses customer confidence and also costs a company money. The security of our customers’ data has never been a higher priority. ISO 27001 Certification means Cisco security policies and procedures have been independently verified, providing a systematic and proactive approach for effectively managing security risks to confidential customer information.

The ISO 27001 Certification is a global, industry-wide specification for an Information Security Management System (ISMS), which is a management framework through which an organization identifies, analyzes and addresses information security risks. To achieve this certification, Cisco underwent a comprehensive independent, third party audit of our security practices and methodologies by TÜV SÜD.

As the number one cybersecurity company, Cisco is dedicated to raising the bar for information security for customers. We invested the time and resources to achieve this certification to give our customers something invaluable: peace-of-mind.

So, thank you to our entire Cisco Services team for your time and efforts to make this happen. In case there was ever any doubt, we are all-in when it comes to protecting data!

Cisco’s services expertise spans the IT lifecycle – from advisory and manage through training and technical services – so you can easily move wherever business takes you. To learn more, visit us at:

  5. This is awesome news!!!!

  6. Congratulations and important step for the EU market. Looking forward to hear more as well on our progress for EU GDPR. As the implementation of ISO 27001 identifies personal data as an information security asset covers most of the EU GDPR requirements I would encourage to move fast to the next level. This would Cisco put ahead and demonstrate our customer’s commitment.

  7. Dear Joe,
    first of all congratulations to all who were involved and have contributed to achieve this important milestone. This is perfect timing for Cisco Germany as we are about to set-up a client datacenter incl. the necessary Data Protection measures. So ISO 27001 is a crucial element and you have just delivered it.
    Thanks and Best Regards – Peter Heinrich
