Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam, March 29, 2013. IMT Solutions started the journey toward ISO 27001 certification. The goal of the program is to develop and maintain an integrated Quality and Information Security Management System (QISMS).

IMT has felt increasing pressure from the clients for a mature information security management system. The goal of the program is to develop and maintain an integrated Quality and Information Security Management System (QISMS). This system will help us to meet the growing information security demand from the clients and regulators.

In February 2013, we formed up the ISO27001 team with the representatives from all company’s departments and business units. The program started with a 2 day training event for ISO 27001 team. On March 29th, the first training day was organized with the experts from Dong Nai STAC, an approved consultancy firm of National ISO 27001 program sponsored by Vietnam Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC). The training gave our team a good understand of the ISO 27001 standard and its requirements.

With full the support and cooperation from the management team and employees involved in this initiative, the company aims to be ISO 27001 certified by November 2013.
