Certification is always important when it validates, in a positive manner, a company’s achievements.
Which is what occurred to Asia Satellite Telecommunications Company Limited (AsiaSat). The company has been awarded the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, a globally recognized international standard for Information Security Management System (ISMS) for its hosting service provided from AsiaSat’s teleport in Hong Kong. The certification validates the company’s commitment to continually enhancing its service security and integrity to customers.
AsiaSat received the certification following a security compliance audit validated by an independent audit firm, covering areas of operational and security control; information security policies and procedures; risk assessment and management; monitoring, measurement and evaluation.
“In this digital era when data is driving the world and our economies, safeguarding information security has become a top priority of any thriving business. This new ISO-certified hosting service will leverage our satellite and ground facilities to deliver fully integrated, service-oriented solutions. We look forward to continuing to exceed customers’ expectation in everything we do with the highest standard of quality and information security,” said Ina Lui, Senior Vice President, Commercial, Business Development & Strategy of AsiaSat.
AsiaSat’s teleport is located at the Tai Po Industrial Estate of Hong Kong. This world-class facility includes 19 C-, Ku- and Ka-band antennas and more than 50 TVROs to offer a wide range of value-added services to data and video customers including signal downlink, turnaround and uplink, fibre connectivity, transmission platforms and related services.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an international compliance framework set by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards, and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
