Doha, September 21, 2013
Globally acclaimed Information Security Firm, Paladion Networks recently facilitated Qatar Rail in successfully attaining the International Organization for Standardization Certification (ISO 27001), earning the prestigious accreditation after external assessments.
ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard that provides the basis for effective management of confidential and sensitive information, and for the application of information security controls, said a statement from Paladion Networks.
It allows organizations to demonstrate excellence and prove best practice in Information Security management. The standard enables organizations to achieve conformance to an information security management system which requires them to continually improve their control of confidential and sensitive information.
In order to prepare Qatar Rail to be certified, Paladion carried out a risk assessment of the firm’s security polices then implemented an information security management system (ISM) that would comply with the ISO 27001 standards, said a senior official.
"ISO 27001 is a globally accepted standard that provides a risk-based approach to secure sensitive information in assets. Paladion team is privileged to have assisted Qatar Rail with this significant achievement," remarked Amit Roy, the business head, ME, Paladion Networks.
Qatar rail now has processes to ensure that information security threats are identified quickly and preventive actions are taken to minimize impacts, stated Roy.
