Quality is of essence within cybersecurity. This may sound obvious but it is not always intuitive until you compare quality with quantity and the nature of the relationship between defence and offence.
The attacker can try over and over again until breach is reached. This implies that quantity (trying many times with different strategies) is a useful strategy. The opposite is true for the defender. Every attack needs to be warded off successfully. The standard of the defence must exceed the standard of every attack. Something very alike the definition of quality. Any weak spot in the defence will eventually be exposed if the attacker just tries enough variations of attacks.
Society is being more digitized, the number of data streams increases and the sum value of all things digital has never been this large. The incentives for cybercrime heighten fast and the attacks are getting increasingly sophisticated. High quality and continuous improvement is therefore crucial for success within cybersecurity.
Link22 once again received a quality certificate of ISO 9001:2015 accreditation from Swedac Ackreditering.

We find third party verification very useful within security. Under our product area cross domain solutions we offer the product Countersign. The product lets an organisation condition file transport based on third party signatures. This aligns with our own way of verifying our quality by third party verification, this time manifesting as ISO 9001:2015.
