BERLIN, December 12, 2023 — Holocene, a logistics automation provider, proudly announces its achievement of ISO 27001 certification, marking a significant stride in its commitment to the highest standards of information security. This certification is a testament to Holocene's unwavering dedication to integrating robust security measures seamlessly into its operational framework.

At the heart of Holocene's pursuit for ISO 27001 certification is the belief that in the digital age, security forms the foundational bedrock of all innovation. "At Holocene, security is not just an operational necessity but the cornerstone of all innovative endeavors. By integrating world-class security processes from the outset, we ensure that our agility and innovation are complemented by robust and reliable security measures," said Navneet Lekshminarayanan, the managing director of Holocene. 

The journey to this certification witnessed internal resistance, stemming from concerns that an intensive focus on security might impede the company's innovative spirit. Holocene’s leadership persisted, alleviating concerns by transforming its approach to view security as a fundamental element of every aspect of its operations — from every line of code to each product launch. This mindset shift was facilitated by advanced tools and automation support from Drata, fostering a culture where security is ingrained in every process and decision.

The greatest challenge to certification was with changing the collective mindset within the company as top-down initiatives alone would not suffice in cultivating a culture of security. It required collaborative efforts and innovative tools to demonstrate that security and development speed are not mutually exclusive but can, in fact, synergistically coexist.

The impact of achieving ISO 27001 certification on Holocene's operations and security practices has been profound. It safeguards the company's intellectual property, enhances asset accountability, and ensures the continuous protection of technology assets. More importantly, it assures clients and stakeholders of the security and integrity of their data, a critical consideration in today's digital landscape.

“Undergoing a rigorous auditing process is a bold statement of Holocene’s priorities. It reflects our deep commitment not just to product development and sales but also to ensuring the highest levels of security. The ISO 27001 certification positions Holocene as a forward-thinking leader in its industry, one that values the trust and security of its customers as much as its innovative potential,” said Lekshminarayanan.

With the certification, Holocene continues to live up to the benchmark it has set within the supply chain ecosystem. This achievement is more than just a milestone; it signifies Holocene's enduring dedication to excellence and that they will continue to deliver services that are not only cutting-edge but also secure and trustworthy.
