ZainTech achieves ISO certification for its cloud and security management operations in Kuwait and Jordan
ZainTech, the one-stop digital and ICT solutions powerhouse of Zain Group, announces that its operations in Kuwait and Jordan have received International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certifications for their respective cloud and security operations stacks. This endorsement provides peace of mind, internally and externally, to customers and partners that ZainTech is implementing the highest levels of security management over its systems.
ZainTech’s Kuwait and Jordan received ISO27001, ISO27017, and ISO27018 certifications, with the first certification being formally known as ISO/IEC 27001:2022. This information security standard provides a framework and guidelines for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an information security management system (ISMS). This helps organizations identify, manage, and reduce their information security risks, protect their confidential information, and maintain the integrity and availability of their data.
ISO27017 – Cloud Security Management: ISO/IEC 27017 is a security standard developed for cloud service providers and users to make a safer cloud-based environment and reduce the risk of security problems.
ISO27018 – Personal Data Security in the Cloud: ISO/IEC 27018 is the international standard for protecting personal information in cloud storage, reducing the risk of data breaches and unauthorized access, and helping cloud service providers to comply with privacy laws and regulations.
Commenting on the certifications, Andrew Hanna, ZainTech CEO said, “A critical area in our business is trust, and our customers must be completely confident that our interactions with them are transparent, secure, and professionally managed. ISO certifications help provide this confidence and work as an internal tool to ensure our processes are operating at the desired levels. I congratulate the teams in Jordan and Kuwait for attaining these certifications that demonstrate our commitment to security and to providing best-in-class enterprise solutions.”
ISO certifications are awarded by BSI, a highly-regarded company headquartered in the UK, which produces technical standards on a wide range of products and services and also supplies certification and standards-related services to businesses.
