Qt Group Achieves ISO 27001:2022 Certification, Strengthening Data Security and Privacy

Qt Group has successfully achieved the ISO 27001:2022 certification. This achievement is a significant milestone in the company’s cybersecurity strategy and underscores its commitment to ensuring the highest levels of information security management (ISMS).  

What is ISO 27001:2022? 

ISO 27001:2022 is the world’s best-known standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS), and our certification reflects compliance with 100% of the standard’s requirements.  ISMS is a documented management system comprising a set of security controls that protect the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of assets from threats and vulnerabilities. 

The basic goal of ISO/IEC 27001 is to protect three aspects of information: 

  • Confidentiality: Only authorized personnel have the right to access information 
  • Availability: The information must be accessible to authorized personnel whenever it is needed 
  • Integrity: Only authorized personnel can change the information 

The current version of ISO 27001 is ISO/IEC 27001:2022, published in October 2022.  

The Importance of ISO 27001:2022 

 In today’s digital age, organizations collect, store, and process vast amounts of data. When organizations fail to secure or protect this data, it exposes them to many business risks like breaches, financial losses, reputational damage, or potential fines and prosecution. ISO 27001:2022 helps organizations become risk-aware and proactively identify and address weaknesses. The certification promotes a comprehensive approach to information security by providing a balance between people, processes, and technology. 

What Does This Mean to You? 

“We now have an ISMS covering our company, products, and customer information” said Qt Group CIO Jussi Mikkonen. 

Achieving ISO 27001:2022 certification brings several benefits to our customers: 

  • Data Security: ISO 27001:2022 certification helps us to identify security gaps and vulnerabilities, protect data, and avoid costly security breaches. This means that our customers can trust us with their data, knowing that we have robust security measures in place. Qt Framework, Qt Development Tools, Qt Design Studio, Qt Insight, Qt Digital Ads, Squish, Coco and Test Center are all in the scope of the certification. 
  • Compliance: ISO 27001:2022 helps us meet compliance requirements by requiring a comprehensive risk assessment to better understand the security landscape and new emerging risks. This ensures that we are always up to date with the latest regulations and standards, providing peace of mind for our customers. 

We are proud of this achievement and remain committed to maintaining the highest information security standards.
