The Centre is pleased to announce that it has obtained ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for the Information Security Management System (ISMS).
The ISO 27001 is the best-known standard providing a comprehensive framework for ISMS: it sets specific management processes that must be put in place to control risks linked to information systems, and ensures integrity and confidentiality of information. To obtain this certification, the Centre implemented the required controls and underwent a formal audit to confirm that it is compliant with the requirements set out by the standard.
This certification considerably increases the credibility and trustworthiness of organizations in terms of information security management. The certification procedure for the Centre was performed by Bureau Veritas, a well-known international accreditation body. Before granting the certification, Bureau Veritas verified that the Centre systematically assessed and mitigated any potential information security risks, including threats, vulnerabilities and impacts.
Commenting on the certification, Minori Hara, the Centre’s Chief Information Officer said: “Achieving ISO 27001 certification is an important milestone. It is not just a fancy, framed piece of paper to hang on the office wall. It actually demonstrates that the whole organization is willing to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of its data and is committed to complying with the new security framework”.
