Cyber Security Brunei (CSB), the national cyber security agency which operates under the Ministry of Transport and Infocommunications, has achieved international standards for Information Security Management System (ISMS).
Following a two-stage audit from October to December last year, CSB was awarded the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification recently by the Information Security Certification Body of CyberSecurity Malaysia, which provides certification services based on international standards and guidelines, focussing on information security.
The audit included reviews on whether CSB’s ISMS policies and procedures meet the globally recognised framework in the security management of data assets.
The key objective of ISO 27001 is to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical data assets.
CSB is now certified as compliant to international standards in Information Security Management System (ISMS) for delivering professional cyber security services and operated by ITPSS Sdn Bhd.
CSB’s National Digital Forensics Laboratory had also successfully attained the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation in the field of Forensic Testing from the American National Standards Institute National Accreditation Board last year.
It is the only digital forensics laboratory in Brunei Darussalam and among only a few in Southeast Asia to obtain such a standard.
