Information security policies

Information Security Policies

A detailed set of security policies designed to provide management direction and support of the information management system and all operational activities with respect to WEBFLEET®.

Organisation of information security

Organization of Information Security

Information Security is everyone’s business.
Employment of a full-time information security team to provide compliance and governance of the ISO 27001 in addition to alignment with the German Data Protection Act is at the foundation of the organization of information security. All of our employees play an integral part in supporting the information security management system.

Human resources

Human Resources

Security in the employment life cycle is critical to ensure that security is emphasized prior, during, and after the termination of employment.

Asset management

Asset management

Inventory, ownership, and maintenance of all our assets throughout the life cycle is important to ensure that assets are categorized, labeled, and assigned risk owners to ensure that all assets including those with company IP or customer data are handled in a correct and secure way to maintain security.

Access control

Access Control

Through authentication / authorization controls and identity management, all access is limited to a need-to-have basis. Additional controls assist to prevent unauthorized access, for example system logging and monitoring which provides real-time detection across our security perimeter.



We invest in state of the art hardware and software solutions including proven cryptographic technologies in order to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our customer’s data as well as our operational systems.

Physical and environmental security

Physical and Environmental Security

We place great value on ensuring physical and logical separation is maintained in WEBFLEET®. This includes ensuring that the physical location in which information assets are located is protected from unauthorized access and that equipment is protected from environmental conditions to prevent the failure of services for our customers.

Communications security

Communications Security

The protection of physical and virtual assets is critical to a secure telematics solution. This also includes maintaining a secure communications network and the facilities from which the network is hosted for secure transfer of the data between your APP vehicle and our WEBFLEET® back-end.

Information Security Incident Management

Information Security Incident Management

Should a security incident occur, it is important to have an effective approach for managing the incident, which includes the communication to all interested parties, as well as the internal reporting of security weaknesses which helps support a secure perimeter.
