Information & cyber security

Everything we do comes down to information. Digital, physical, and verbal. In products, processes, and in people. At GEA, we are deeply committed to protecting all kinds of sensitive information for the benefit of our customers and partners, and for our corporate success.

Information Security & Cyber Security

The need for information security is constantly growing – especially as digitalization and remote work increase. Since everything we do is based on information, and systems are becoming ever more interconnected, securing information is an imperative for future success. At GEA, information security is a prime strategic priority. We shape and design our value creation processes to ensure information is handled securely. By protecting our own and our partners’ company information, we will all have the right environment and the peace of mind to focus on what we do best: engineering for a better world.

Comprehensive information security approach

GEA strives to be the world’s leading technology group, providing innovative and sustainable solutions for sophisticated process industries. Our strategy is based on our central goal to be the partner of choice for customers worldwide. Accordingly, we have a profound, secure, effective, and efficient Information Security Management System (ISMS) in place. At GEA, we work hard every day to achieve this. We operate and continuously improve our global ISMS, which consists of preventive, detective, reactive, and corrective security measures against growing security threats. From top management to every employee, each member of the GEA Group worldwide is committed to protecting the information of our customers and partners as well as our own, in the best possible way within their area of responsibility.

Protecting all types of sensitive information

Our approach is to protect all kinds of sensitive information: intellectual property, strategic, pricing, personal information and other know-how information processed by GEA, regardless of its format. Information security applies to physical, electronic, and verbal information alike. Our goal is to adequately protect all information assets from theft, loss, unauthorized disclosure, unlawful access, misuse, unauthorized modification, and destruction.

We achieve this by covering the core values of information security – confidentiality, integrity, and availability – also known as “CIA.”



Prevents or minimizes unauthorized access to information



Ensures the reliability and correctness of information



Ensures that authorized subjects are granted timely and uninterrupted access to information
