Fairfax, VA - USA, 2016

ControlCase, a leading global provider of Compliance as a Service (CaaS), Certifications, and IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) software has announced it has certified Arab Financial Services (AFS), a leading provider of electronic payments outsourcing services and consumer-finance outsourcing services in the Middle East region, to the ISO 27001 Certification, a globally recognized information security standard published by the International Standardization Organization.

“The ISO standard emphasizes the measuring and evaluation of an organization’s Information Security Management System’s performance, which is achieved through rigorous reviews of data management and privacy practices,” said Kishor Vaswani, CEO at ControlCase. “ControlCase provides a solution that affirms an organization has implemented the necessary controls, technologies and procedures for effective information security.”

ISO 27001:2013 standard was published in September 2013 and supersedes ISO 27001:2005 information security standard. It is the most rigorous and recognized international standard for implementing and managing security controls that protect information assets. Organizations across the globe need to manage and protect their sensitive information and, as a result, ISO 27001 certification has increasingly become a requirement for doing business with many enterprises. Both public and private sector organizations are placing a high priority on hardening their internal information security and management systems and are requiring their IT partners be ISO 27001 certified before qualifying as a trusted IT vendor.

“Successful completion of the recent audit has verified that AFS’s information security practices, policies, procedures and operations meet the ISO standard for security,” said B Chandrasekhar, CEO of Arab Financial Services. “Our clients and partners across the globe can rest assured that we have maintained and will continue to maintain an effective information security and compliance program as we strive to sustain the highest level of internal controls.”

“By achieving ISO 27001:2013 certification, AFS demonstrates that its information security controls meet global security requirements for the management of data,” said Vaswani. “ControlCase remains committed to supporting organizations like AFS in achieving compliance with information security regulations and making compliance a business-as-usual function.
