Gap analysis of an ISMS according to ISO 27001

Our cooperation with KARL BACHL GmbH & Co. KG

KARL BACHL GmbH & Co KG is a medium-sized company for products and services in the construction sector.

The customer is now represented at over 40 locations with approx. 1,800 employees.

In addition to the German production sites, there are also plants and trading subsidiaries in Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Croatia and Romania.


The continuous growth through company takeovers presents the client with the challenge of integrating them into the existing group of companies.

Information security and data protection requirements play a central role in this process.

Our task was to determine the information security level according to ISO 27001

Our contribution ...

Our challenge was to analyse the status of the currently established information security level and whether this corresponds to an appropriate basic information protection at standard level in order to be able to close important gaps if necessary.


The support provided by think tank gave us an overview of all information security requirements according to ISO 27001 and what degree of fulfilment they have in the company. This enabled us to identify the essential points for achieving an appropriate level of security.


What we particularly liked about the cooperation with think tank was the open and honest communication regarding the weaknesses that were uncovered in combination with proposed practical solutions, which were underpinned by the excellent expertise of the consultants.
