Cologne Bonn Airport

Introduction of an ISMS

Cologne Bonn Airport is one of the most important commercial airports in Germany. Every year, almost 12 million passengers choose to fly to the airport, which ranks 6th in Germany. Almost 30 airlines fly from here to 129 destinations. More than 14,000 people are directly employed at the site. The airport company itself employs 1,800 people.

As a distribution network operator, Flughafen Köln/Bonn GmbH has introduced an information security management system (ISMS) based on ISO/IEC 27001:2013. The requirement was derived from the Energy Industry Act (§ 11 para. 1 a EnWG) and the IT security catalogue of the Federal Network Agency referenced there. The object of this project was to support the implementation of the ISMS in accordance with ISO/IEC 27001:2013.

secunet supported FKB in an advisory capacity during the implementation of the ISMS and successfully accompanied it through the initial certification audit, which was carried out by an accredited certification body in accordance with the IT security catalogue of the BNetzA.
