Largest Agro-Industrial Food organisation in Thailand awarded ISO/IEC 27001 certification
BSI Group (Thailand) Co., Ltd. has recently awarded the CPF IT Center; with the internationally recognised standard for Information Security Management System – the ISO / IEC 27001:2005.
With the recent certification ceremony in December 2011; the CPF IT Center now joins a growing list of organisations in Bangkok that are keen to showcase their commitment to maintain a strict information security control framework within their workplace environment. As a subsidiary company of Charoen Pokphand Foods PCL, the CPF IT Center has been charged with the critical role to respond to all other subsidiaries on both Software and Hardware IT operations. The company recognises the need for such a certification and acknowledges that ISO27001:2005 will indeed help to ensure appropriate safety controls to securely protect information and intellectual property. Whilst the ISO/IEC 27001 standard in general represents the best practices of Information Security Management techniques; the certification of ISO/IEC 27001:2005 awarded to CPF IT Center solely focuses on IT Security best practices.
Ms. Pharithacha Petchrungruengphol, Managing Director of BSI Thailand commented, “Thailand is a potential strong growth market and our IT infrastructures is quickly improving in recent years. Initiatives from the government such as the “FREE 20,000 WIFI hotspots” and the “Smart Government” program announced recently by the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology will help to push the IT landscape in Bangkok and throughout Thailand. It’s inevitable that organisations will have to give more attention to measures such as Information Security to help manage its data flow in and out of the organisation”
The increased number of certificates issued by BSI Group Thailand has shown that many more have been concerned with the strength of their Information Security policy. BSI Group Thailand has taken a step further by partnering with Thailand governmental agencies under the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology such as the e-Government Agency and Electronic Transaction Development Agencies; in order to help improve the overall information security landscape for Thailand.
