RAK Chamber wins key ISO certification

RAS AL KHAIMAH, February 26, 2018

Ras Al Khaimah Chamber said it has received the ISO 27001 Information Security Management Systems Certification.
 
The award comes in recognition of the Chamber’s efficient information security management systems and operations. The certification provides the basis for an international standard for information security management best practices in several data driven sectors. 
 
The certification is yet another evidence for stakeholders and partners highlighting the Chamber’s successful track record in implementing effective information management systems coupled with its adoption of global best practices. 
 
Mohamed Hassan Al Sabab, the acting director general of Ras Al Khaimah Chamber, said the chamber was committed to ensuring the security and privacy of customer data. 
 
"We have implemented an information management system owing to our firm believe in the need to safeguard information and educate everyone involved in information processing. Our plan is to provide necessary protections for the safety of our customer’s data in view of the ever evolving landscape of information security breaches and threats," stated Al Sabab.
 
"Information security is underpinned by three key elements: people, operations, and technology. Hence, the Chamber has to adhere to the guiding principles put in place to protect private information and data and ensure the safety of customers against all forms of information-related threats," he added.
 
Eiman Al Hayyas, the assistant director, Supporting and Corporate Service, stated that the ISO 27001 certification win was possible because of a collaborative effort among the chamber’s divisions. 
 
Fatima Al Mazrouei, the director of the IT Department, said: "A business continuity plan was implemented with the objective of managing disaster, infrastructure and IT disruption incident response at the chamber. The plan will ensure uninterrupted provision of the Chamber’s essential services during and after disaster and disruption incidents."
 
"It will also mitigate the risk of further disruptions and limit their potential impact on the Chamber’s operations and services," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
