LexisNexis® PatentSight® Receives ISO 27001 Certification for International Information Security Standard

Certified Information Security Management System (ISMS) attests proper use of information, data and systems within the PatentSight Business Intelligence platform for strategic patent analytics.

Bonn, Germany, August 10, 2020 – PatentSight, a LexisNexis® Legal & Professional company, today announced that it complies with all requirements of the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard and has been officially certified by FOX Certification GmbH.

Trust and security to set the benchmark for successful business relationships

Utilizing a Business Intelligence Platform for the preparation of evaluations and analyses of patent information, including not only the elaboration of company-specific landscape analyses, competitiveness analyses, but also in particular the addition of in-house data, requires a high degree of trust in the provider of the software that is used.

“It is our responsibility as a software provider working with sensitive customer information to present a high degree of integrity. We have always maintained our quality standards at a remarkably high level. The official ISO 27001 certification now further bolsters our confidence and demonstrates our strong commitment to the security of our systems and processes,” said Marco Richter, Managing Director of PatentSight.

High quality standards at PatentSight have always been deeply rooted in the organizational culture

PatentSight has always placed great importance on accuracy and quality, which are deeply rooted in the organizational culture. This is reflected by the high data quality of patent information that PatentSight makes available in its software. Also, the demand for service quality has been given exceptional importance since the beginning. The high-quality standards have been appreciated by customers and partners for many years, which is reflected in the multitude and density of applications of PatentSight analyses and metrics.

Information security standards that PatentSight users benefit from, through ISO 27001 certification

ISO 27001 is the leading international standard for information security management systems (ISMS) and thus the most important cyber security certification. It defines the requirements for the introduction, implementation, monitoring and improvement of an information security management system (ISMS). This implies amongst others

  • Ensuring the availability of the IT systems
  • The conscientious handling of customer data, protection against data loss and misuse
  • The early identification and reduction of threats and risks
  • Systematic controls and measures for the continuous maintenance of operations

ISO certification not only requires a security standard for the status quo, but is also subject to a continuous improvement process, which adapts to growing and changing situations.

PatentSight users benefit from a business intelligence solution that has been safety standard certified and one that boasts highest overall data quality standards. Learn more about PatentSight.
