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.
