BENEFIT, the Kingdom’s innovator and leading company in Fintech and electronic financial transactions service, has become one of the first institutions to obtain the ISO 27001 certificate, the international standard for managing information security. The BENEFIT Company has been accredited with the ISO 27001 certification for information security management system (ISMS) in recognition of BENEFIT’s ongoing efforts to fully secure all information assets.
ISO 27001 has become the international standard for managing information security, as it enables organisations to manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties.
ISO 27001 Standard is recognised worldwide as an indication that the ISMS is aligned with information security best practices, and BENEFIT has applied the ISO 27001 standards to all sectors of the company without exception. BENEFIT’s Head of Information Security & Risk Management, Ali Beshara commented on this achievement, “Security is at the forefront of every action we take. At BENEFIT, we recognise the significance of data and understand that data protection is of paramount importance.
Achieving ISO 27001 certification is an outstanding achievement that reflects our team’s consistent efforts to establish secure guidelines and protocols in every layer of our business. He added, “Achieving this certification comes at a critical time where the marketplace has heightened sensitivity to cyber threats, and we will continue to meet these standards to better serve our consumers. This is a testament to BENEFIT’s commitment to go above and beyond when it comes to security.” This achievement is yet another key milestone. BENEFIT recognises the significance of data protection and responding to evolving security threats. BENEFIT continues to invest in the management of information security.
