Information Security

The increasingly digitalized business processes at HUGO BOSS depend to a large extent on the quality of IT services as well as information and communication technology. Information technology is an important resource in all business areas. Above all, customers, but also employees, suppliers, business partners, shareholders and investors trust that their data and information are secure with us. To be able to justify this trust, we have taken sufficient measures to ensure the integrity, availability and confidentiality of data and information.

For this reason, the HUGO BOSS Management Board has determined the basic information security group strategy and its organizational structure in the Information Security Policy.
