SGS Celebrates Cybersecurity Milestone with Internationally Recognized Accreditation for High Security Evaluations

SGS, the
world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company,
has been approved by the BSI (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der
Informationstechnik), the German Federal Office for Information Security, to
undertake cybersecurity evaluations according to Common Criteria for the
Technical Domain ‘Smart Cards and Similar Devices’.

As the
foundation for high security evaluations on semiconductor chips this Technical
Domain is used traditionally for mobile payments and electronic identification
cards. It is also relevant to emerging markets, such as Automotive and IoT.

SGS’s Cyberlab in Graz, Austria, this approval follows successful completion of proof of
competence. A major milestone for SGS, this Common Criteria accreditation
complements those SGS recently gained in the Netherlands, Spain, Norway,
Singapore and Turkey, with the acquisition of Brightsight, the world’s leading
cybersecurity evaluation laboratory for chip-based security products.

Herbst, Head of the Cyberlab in Graz
said: “To secure this license, our experts had to
conduct highly advanced attacks, such as Side-Channel and Fault Attacks on
semiconductors chips. We are proud to have finished the process within just one
year, an achievement which demonstrates the excellence, commitment and focus of
our team.”
