Information security

We are proud owners of the 27001 certificate.


In our work, we come across a wealth of information and data, from general to specific, from publicly available to confidential. Information can be personal in nature - about our employees, or business related - about our company, our business partners. Often they are an integral part of our technological processes - data that is processed or stored on our infrastructure.

The Information Security Policy is an integral part of our business processes, not only as required by law, but because it is in line with our business ethics, and this way we build and maintain the confidence of both our coworkers and business partners.

Arctur's Information Security Policy sets the framework for organizational and technological management of data and information that we encounter or use in our work processes. The purpose of the Information Security Policy is to determine the importance of specific information for our company and to protect it appropriately in terms of ensuring its confidentiality, integrity and availability:

  • Confidentiality: to provide access to information to authorized persons only;
  • Integrity: protecting the accuracy and completeness of information by preventing unauthorized changes;
  • Availability: providing authorized persons with access to information and related resources when they need it.

The organizational aspect of Information Security Policy determines, who in the company collects and who has access to specific information, how information and data are used, how long we store it, and the like. The technical aspect sets the framework for ensuring secure communication and transmission of data, for storing and analogue or digital archiving of data, for protecting it, for access authorisations management, for on-going security checks and for eliminating potential vulnerabilities.

Taking care of information and data protection is part of Arctur's business culture and is well known to all “Arcturians”. We regularly review and upgrade our Information Security Policy. Probably it is not necessary to emphasize that we also continuously follow relevant technological developments.

Gender and Equality Aspects

A prosperous workplace is achieved when people are able to access and enjoy the same rewards, resources and opportunities regardless of gender, sexuality, personal disabilities or beliefs as well as ethnic, religious or socioeconomic background. For this reason, diversity is nurtured among employees and opportunities are available to everyone.

Arctur provides equal pay for work and removes barriers to equal participation of women in the workforce. Hence, more than half of the management staff in the company is female even though that might not be typical for the IT sector. At Arctur women represent 43% of all employees. Furthermore, in the top management position women represent 67%, meanwhile in the middle management 45%.

In addition, continuous professional and personal growth is promoted in various forms as well as mentorship and sharing knowledge between co-workers. Moreover, the company prides itself on employing many young talents and thus employs 45% of personnel under the age of 35

Arctur continuously awards a scholarship to students and support them by offering internships, coaching and hands-on training. Flexible working options are offered to allow employees to accommodate their health needs, caring responsibilities i.e. balance their work and family life as well as their personal preferences. This enables persons with disabilities to equally participate in the work processes and at the same time ensures personal satisfaction and high motivation among the workforce. All this is possible due to the company culture that empowers and values each and every employee, is equality oriented and does not tolerate any type of discrimination.
