Quality in the ICT sector

SQS assesses and certifies quality standards in the ICT sector.

The significance of information and communication technology (ICT) for companies and organisations is increasing every year. SQS supports producers, distributors and users of ICT-based products and services in successfully managing the complex challenges, for example in relation to the security of information and privacy. Maintaining high quality standards is the basis for sustained improvement in market position.

Management systems for IT providers

The certification of IT service management systems pursuant to ISO/IEC 20000-1 is a recognised and proven foundation for the customer-oriented, effective structuring of processes and for ensuring the reliability of associated services. Certification covers companies and organisational units that provide IT services in support of business processes, i.e. internal and external IT providers. They can be certain that their IT service management system is based on appropriate goals, targets and measures. During the process, our customers benefit from the considerable expertise of the SQS team.

Specific quality standards

SQS is well qualified to anchor the required standards within specific areas of IT processes. Use of the GoodPriv@cy® data protection label is an example of this. The certificate provides documentation of achievements in the privacy sphere in an objective way to customers, business partners and the public alike. It is becoming a vital quality assurance tool for companies and organisations that process sensitive personal information. The same applies to information security certification pursuant to ISO/IEC 27001. A structured information security system based on this certification is an effective tool for identifying and controlling specific IT security risks, as well as for ensuring the reliability of associated systems. It is tailored to the needs of organisations that are prepared to leave nothing to chance in the ICT field.
