ISO27001 Online FastTrack Consultancy Case Studies

BNETS achieves joint certification to ISO 22301 and ISO 27001 with remote, online consultancy

Having spoken to Gregory Tai-Apin, IT manager for Banking Network Suriname (BNETS), about the company’s recent joint certification to ISO 27001 and ISO 22301, the global authoritative standards on information security and business continuity management. He told us that they had received their certificates on the very same day that we had called him.

 

Suriname-based central switch provider

With just over 550,000 citizens, Suriname is one of the smallest countries in South America. In the late 17th century, England signed Suriname over to the Dutch in exchange for the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam (modern-day New York). The country was under Dutch rule from then until 1975, when it was granted independence. Dutch is still the official language of Suriname today.

BNETS is the central switch provider for the eight major banks in Suriname. BNETS manages the interbank network by using high quality and state-of-the-art equipment to deliver the best possible service to facilitate electronic money transfers. As an integral player in ensuring the banking industry’s ongoing operational efficiency, business continuity management and data security are of paramount importance.

 

Recognising the need to move towards a more mature level of information security

A few years before, recognising the need to apply additional security measures to protect its infrastructure and data, the CEO of BNETS, Mr. Kenneth Hendrison, asked a leading consultancy firm to review its IT maturity levels. The firm recommended that BNETS adopt ISO 27001 as a solution for improved information security.
