ISO 27001 certification
ISO 27001:2013 is an international standard that provides a framework for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) to provide confidentiality, integrity, continued availability of information, and legal compliance. The ISO 27001 certification is essential to protect SQM’s most important assets, in addition to the information of its clients and employees, the corporate image, and other private information, essential for the business. The ISO standard includes a process-based approach to launching, implementing, operating, and maintaining a management system.
In February 2023 and after a 5-month implementation process, SQM's Lithium Commercial Dept obtained ISO 27001 certification. The next step is to implement the strategic roadmap for the implementation and certification of this standard in other departments of SQM. Between 2023 and 2024, the areas of Corporate Finance, Iodine, Nitrate, and Fertilizers will be certified in order to standardize the processes linked to information security and cybersecurity.
2023 February: ISO 27001 was implemented in the Lithium business Dept. December: ISO 27001 will be implemented in another corporate area (to be defined). At SQM, we´re building a cybersecure culture Together! Download the certificate here
