NGX Group retains global ISO certification

Following the yearly information security management system (ISMS) audit by the British Standard Institute (BSI), the Nigerian Exchange Group (NGX Group) and its subsidiaries have retained its ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification.

This marked the seventh consecutive year that the group will hold this certification since it was first received in 2015.

NGX stated that the re-certification followed a thorough independent audit after which BSI certified the company to be in full compliance with the applicable controls developed to meet the control objectives of the Information Security Management System (ISMS) Standard.

This implies that NGX Group upholds the principles of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) on ISMS and that controls are working as intended.

NGX noted that given the changing security landscape arising from the pandemic, the recertification validated its commitment to protecting information and digital assets by ensuring that its processes are sophisticated and digital interactions are secured through the deployment of robust cybersecurity controls and tools.

“Since first attaining the ISO 27001:2013 certification in August 2015, we have continued to evolve and improve our security management processes to ensure that our information security controls remain efficient, safe and effective in the light of emerging business needs,” NGX stated.

NGX added that it had adopted a proactive approach to security because it recognises the importance of protecting its own data and that of its stakeholder.

“With our recertification, our clients and stakeholders can be confident that we follow information security best practices in managing our cyber risk exposure in the cyber dependent world that we have today,” NGX stated.

ISO 27001:2013, (ISMS) certification by the British Standards Institution is the international standard of best practice for managing confidentiality, integrity and availability of information assets. It is a framework helps organisations manage and protect their information assets so that they maintain the highest levels of safety and security.

While the International Organisation for Standardisation is an independent, standard-setting body that promotes worldwide proprietary, industrial and commercial standards, the British Standards Institution is reputed for providing assessment and certification to management system standards across 150 economies globally.

NGX集团保留全球ISO认证

在英国标准协会(BSI)对信息安全管理系统(ISMS)进行年度审计后,尼日利亚交易所集团(NGX集团)及其子公司保留了ISO/IEC 27001:2013认证。
这标志着自2015年首次获得该认证以来,集团将连续第七年持有该认证。
NGX表示,重新认证是在彻底独立审计之后进行的,之后BSI认证该公司完全符合为满足信息安全管理系统(ISMS)标准的控制目标而制定的适用控制措施。
这意味着NGX集团坚持国际标准化组织(ISO)关于ISMS的原则,并且控制措施按预期运行。
NGX指出,鉴于大流行引起的安全形势不断变化,重新认证通过确保其流程复杂,并通过部署强大的网络安全控制和工具确保数字交互安全,从而验证了其保护信息和数字资产的承诺。
NGX表示:“自2015年8月首次获得ISO 27001:2013认证以来,我们一直在不断发展和改进我们的安全管理流程,以确保我们的信息安全控制在新出现的业务需求下保持高效、安全和有效。”。

NGX表示:“通过我们的重新认证,我们的客户和利益相关者可以确信,我们在当今依赖网络的世界中,在管理我们的网络风险敞口方面遵循了信息安全最佳做法。”。
