MSM has renewed the ISO/27001 certificate for the quality of information security for the third time in a row after having succeeded in complying with all the requirements and standards of the ISO/27001 certificate to include all divisions of the Information Technology infrastructure Department and the Systems and Development Department.
The ISO Quality Assurance Certificate is renewed every three years and verified by Bureau Veritas (BV) each year to ensure that best practices consistent with ISO standards are maintained.
Muscat Securities Market (MSM) has been awarded the ISO certificate for the quality of information security in 2011 as the second stock market in the region at the time, where the scope of the certificate was limited to the network and technical support, while the company audited the ISO certificate is the British company BSI.
After 3 years, the certificate was renewed in 2014 with the same scope as the certificate (Network and Technical Support Section) but with the new ISO/IEC 27001:2013. After completing all ISO/27001 certification requirements, MSM expanded the scope of the certificate to include all sections IT infrastructure, systems and development.
