Telco Data Center Gets ISO 27001:2013 Certification
Globe Telecom’s Data Center has added another feather to its cap as it has been recently assessed and certified in accordance to new requirements of the latest version of Information Security Management System. This forms part of the telco’s strengthened approach in managing sensitive enterprise information for a fully-digital and fully-secure enterprise community in the country.
Globe received an ISO 27001:2013 for Information Security Management System (ISMS) from AJA Registrars Inc. An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. It includes people, processes and IT systems by applying a risk management process.
“We underscore the utmost importance of information security in our operations, fully aware that our service is most crucial during the occurrence of security breaches. It is an honor to receive a re-certification for our ongoing efforts in information security which attests to the maintenance of our current mode of operation, preparedness and readiness toward a risk-based business,” said Globe Senior Advisor for Enterprise and IT Enabled Services Group Mike Frausing.
“Globe Telecom’s consistent and effective implementation of its ISMS and how it has addressed the additional requirements of the 2013 version has allowed them to earn their certification to ISO 27001:2013", attested AJA Registrars Inc., Vice President Paul Bagatsing.
AJA conferred to Globe the re-certification due to its ability to plan, establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and continually improve its document management system. The ISMS preserves the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information to minimize risk and ensure business continuity by proactively limiting the impact of a security breach.
As a company which places a premium and commitment on certification, Globe has earned various ISO accreditations for its Data Center over the years such as ISO 9001:2008 for Quality Management System, ISO 14001:2004 for Environment Management System, ISO 22301:2012 for Business Continuity Management System and ISO 20000-1:2011 for IT Service Management System. All these strengthen the telco’s assurance to its customers in fulfilling their service requirements.
