Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam – Jan 10th, 2014. IMT Solutions announced that it had been awarded ISO 27001:2005 certification. This prestigious certification demonstrates IMT’s successful adherence to ISO 27001:2005, an ISO’s Information Security Management System (ISMS) standard. The certificate is valid for all IMT’s software outsourcing services.
Understanding that IP Protection is one of the key concerns in software outsourcing, IMT has started the ISO 27001:2005 certification program since Feb 2013. The program was consulted by Dong Nai STAC, and was partially sponsored by Vietnam Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC).
IMT’s ISO 27001:2005 evaluation process was conducted by DAS Certification, an UK company. This thorough assessment included multiple rounds of audits to verify both IMT’s compliance to defined ISMS policies and procedures, as well as implementation and institutionalization across all areas of the company’s business. On the on-going basis, IMT will receive annual surveillance audits from DAS Certification.
IMT President’s An Mai commented: “This accreditation demonstrates our commitment as a premier software outsourcing provider to giving our clients and partners the highest standard of information security. This also puts IMT into the top 1% of the Vietnam software companies having ISO 27001 certification according to ISO’s official statistics. We are very delighted with this milestone and the benefits that it brings to our clients and partners. We understand that being certified is just the beginning of our information security journey and we need to continue improving our security controls and processes.”
