ISO 27001 is an overarching management framework through which an organisation can identify, analyse and address its information security risks. It ensures that the security arrangements are fine-tuned to keep pace with changes to the security threats, vulnerabilities and business impacts.
"By being ISO27001-certified, A*STAR is tested and certified to have identified and addressed its organization’s information security risks, and have taken into account all threats, vulnerabilities and impacts. A*STAR has also successfully designed and implemented a coherent and comprehensive suite of information security controls to address all risks. A*STAR's partners and clients will feel more confident and assured as all critical and sensitive information are protected," said Mr. Richard Hong, CEO, TÜV SÜD PSB.
He added, "A*STAR has set a very good example to the rest of Singapore and the world- no doubt- other organizations will be more motivated now to follow in A*STAR’s footsteps and do their part in ensuring maximum information security. We are very privileged to have supported A*STAR in its journey to become ISO27001-certified. We hope we have exceeded your expectations throughout the partnership."
