HONG KONG, February 23, 2017
Geoswift, a leading provider of cross-border payment solutions between China and the rest of the world, announced today that the company has been awarded the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification ISO/IEC 27001:2013. The ISO27001 certificate is a globally recognised international standard for Information Security management system (ISMS). Geoswift presently partners with major global banks, financial service providers, payment solutions providers and merchants.
Attaining ISO/IEC 27001:2013 enables Geoswift to continually enhance the organization’s data security management system and build a risk-based framework for process and secure cross-border payments with international markets. Geoswift received the certification following an extensive external audit, conducted by the BSI group. The certification further seals an international certification of reassurance for Geoswift’s partners on data security and protection.
Raymond Qu, Founder and CEO of Geoswift said, “We believe data security and quality control is essential for any business. At Geoswift, we have always taken a proactive approach to safeguard the information integrity and security of our partners.”
“As we expand our global footprint, data security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property and third-party data from partners must be guarded with highest diligence and respect. The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification was certainly an intensive auditing process but a step in the right direction. Our partners welcome the move and it’s definitely a business investment as we continue to expand our business and deepen relationships with partners this year.”
“In the global payment market, security and reliability are non-negotiable. It is of utmost importance for technology organizations to improve their standards of security and reliability. The success of Geoswift in achieving the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, the latest standard of information security management system, demonstrates the strategic long-term development as well as rigorous and serious work attitude of the organization in protecting their users’ information. Also, it indicates their determination to incorporate international best practices of data protection to meet the increasing expectation of its business customers in the large, rapidly expanding marketplace,” said Emmanuel Herve, Managing Director, BSI ASEAN.
The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification signals Geoswift’s commitment to strengthen the integrity and security of its information security management system.
