Ejada Systems Company Limited has been certified with the prestigious ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard, the highest Information Security Management System (ISMS) certification in the world. ISO 27001:2013 is an international standard designed and formulated to help create a robust ISMS that takes a systematic approach to ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive company and customer information.
The certification was validated following an assessment done by Moody Inspection & Assurance Ltd., an independent certification body. The certification has been issued for the development environment of Ejada software, hosted at Riyadh Data Center, and is inclusive of Ejada software development functions, in-house or outsourced. The scope also covers Data Center infrastructure and all support departments involved in service enablement and delivery.
Kualitatem Inc. assisted Ejada in achieving the certificate in all the implementation phases of ISMS. Kualitatem Inc. worked closely with the Ejada teams and identified the gaps and challenges during implementation. The process involved identification of areas under the scope, performed gap analysis, and developed and updated Information Security policies and procedures. Other areas included identifying information assets and associated risks, and implementing third-party controls. A rigorous information security awareness and training exercise was undertaken to understand and comply with the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard. Later, an internal audit exercise was performed by Kualitatem Inc. to review the implementation and compliance, as well as to support the company during the external audit.
This accreditation is a giant stride for Ejada towards achieving excellence in operations and increasing customer trust and confidence in Ejada’s infrastructure and security capabilities.
