Company history of activeMind AG
activeMind AG Management and Technology Consulting was founded in Munich in 2000 as a consulting and training company specialised in IT security. Since 2005, our employees have increasingly assumed responsibility for the training courses at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Munich [IHK München]. Additionally, flat-rate services were provided for the first time in the area of quality management (IS0 9001).
Audits were greatly expanded in 2008. Since then, inspections in accordance with ISO 9001, ISO 27001 and ISO 27001 based on IT baseline protection [BSI Grundschutz] have been part of our daily operations.
In 2009, we added organisational and technical data protection, specialising in particular on the appointment as external data protection officers. This was the beginning of our flat-rate service provision in the area of data protection.
Since 2013, activeMind AG has also been offering information security services (provision of external information security officers) for a monthly flat rate. With these services, we support businesses and corporations until they are ISO 27001 certified.
In 2014, activeMind AG opened an additional office in Berlin, Germany. In 2016, the partner company activeMind.legal was founded in order to serve international clients and provide individual legal consultation via this law firm.
