The China Post - - LOCAL - BY JOSEPH YEH

Tai­wan has suc­cess­fully helped the St. Lu­cian gov­ern­ment to ob­tain its first ISO 27001 cer­tifi­cate by as­sist­ing its ally in es­tab­lish­ing in­for­ma­tion se­cu­rity man­age­ment sys­tems and im­prov­ing man­age­ment stan­dards, the Tai­wan In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion and Devel­op­ment Fund (ICDF,

) an­nounced yes­ter­day. Speak­ing dur­ing a news brief­ing yes­ter­day, Chen Ai-chen (

), deputy sec­re­tary-gen­eral of the ICDF, said that St. Lu­cia’s gov­ern­ment has been hop­ing to learn from Tai­wan’s ex­pe­ri­ence of e-gov­ern­ment to build an elec­tronic doc­u­ment sys­tem and im­prove the ef­fi­ciency of its op­er­a­tions.

Pre­vi­ously, St. Lu­cian gov­ern­ment de­part­ments gen­er­ally com­mu­ni­cated with each other through pa­per- based doc­u­ments.

Chen said the ICDF has been work­ing with the Com­puter Cen­tre Ltd. of the St. Lu­cian gov­ern­ment over the past year to en­hance gov­ern­ment ef­fi­ciency by es­tab­lish­ing stan­dard­iza­tion and sys­tem­ati­za­tion of public doc­u­ment stor­age sys­tems and ex­change mech­a­nisms.

The ICDF also helped the St. Lu­cian gov­ern­ment to in­tro­duce an elec­tronic doc­u­ment sys­tem and es­tab­lish doc­u­ment for­mat­ting and meta­data stan­dards, and as­sisted the St. Lu­cian gov­ern­ment to con­vert pro­cesses in­volv­ing pa­per­work into elec­tronic pro­cesses and to in­te­grate doc­u­ment ex­change be­tween min­istries.

The as­sis­tance has been proven suc­cess­ful as SGS Tai­wan Ltd., the largest verification, testing and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion or­ga­ni­za­tion in Tai­wan, an­nounced on April 13 that the Com­puter Cen­tre Ltd. of the St. Lu­cian gov­ern­ment has been granted the ISO 27001 cer­tifi­cate.

This is the first time a St. Lu­cian gov­ern­ment unit has been granted the cer­tifi­cate.

The ICDF is a semi-of­fi­cial For­eign Min­istry-funded non­govern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tion re­spon­si­ble for in­ter­na­tional aid.
