About ISO 28000

ISO 28000 certification applies to all organizations that implement a security management system and integrate their security management into their overall quality management system, applicable for both small-medium enterprises and large multinationals in the sectors of manufacturing, service, storage, or transportation, to name a few. Certification against the requirements of the ISO 28000 standard also enables organizations to perform risk assessment with supporting management tools (i.e. document controls, key performance indicators, internal audits and training) and applies the controls in accordance with the risk involved.

Certification against the ISO 28000 standard:

  • Allows security to be managed as a process so that the effectiveness of security management can be measured and improved
  • Allows management to focus resources and efforts on areas with high-risk concerns (through security risk assessment)
  • Allows management to benchmark its security management efforts with international standards
  • Demonstrates to stakeholders the commitment to enforce a systematic security management

SGS is the global leader in the field of transportation and supply chain security. We also advise on policies and procedures against both applicable legal requirements and international best practices to identify areas of key bribery risks and ensure anti-corruption compliance within organizations’ supply chains.
