Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - BUSINESS NEWS -

IronOne Tech­nolo­gies (Pri­vate) Limited has an­nounced the re­ceipt of 1SO/IEC 27001:2013 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for ‘ Board­PAC’, the com­pany’s soft­ware so­lu­tion for pa­per­less Board and Se­nior Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee meet­ings.

Con­sid­ered the pin­na­cle of in­for­ma­tion se­cu­rity cer­ti­fi­ca­tions, this cer­ti­fi­ca­tion by Bureau Ver­i­tas cov­ers the In­for­ma­tion Se­cu­rity Man­age­ment Sys­tem sup­port­ing Board­PAC soft­ware prod­ucts de­vel­oped and cus­tomised by IronOne for its clients in Sri Lanka and over­seas.

ISO 27001 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is the in­ter­na­tional bench­mark for In­for­ma­tion Se­cu­rity Man­age­ment. In or­der to achieve this ac­cred­i­ta­tion, a com­pany must show it has a sys­tem­atic and on­go­ing ap­proach to man­ag­ing and pro­tect­ing the as­sets and sen­si­tive com­pany as well as cus­tomer in­for­ma­tion.

Founded in 2006, IronOne Tech­nolo­gies (Pri­vate) Limited, is a Mi­crosoft Gold Cer­ti­fied com­pany with of­fices in Sri Lanka, USA and Malaysia and part­ner of­fices in 15 other coun­tries in­clud­ing South Africa, Bangladesh, Sin­ga­pore, Ja­pan, U.K., Ger­many, New Zealand and In­dia. The com­pany is a lead­ing player in the domain of mo­bile and soft­ware de­sign and devel­op­ment ser­vices. Board­PAC, a flag­ship prod­uct of IronOne Tech­nolo­gies, is an ef­fec­tive and highly se­cure way for Board Di­rec­tors and Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee mem­bers to ac­cess board and com­mit­tee pa­pers and sup­ple­men­tary in­for­ma­tion di­rectly from their iPads, thereby elim­i­nat­ing the need for print­ing mul­ti­ple copies of each doc­u­ment and couri­er­ing such doc­u­ments to the Di­rec­tors. It also pro­vides an easy way for Di­rec­tors to view all doc­u­ments re­lated to a board pa­per in a clear man­ner.

Com­ment­ing on t he re­ceipt of ISO 27001 Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, IronOne Tech­nolo­gies’ Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer, Ra­jitha Ku­rup­pumulle said: “As one of the most se­cured soft­ware prod­ucts, it is quite nat­u­ral that Board­PAC is in the fore­front of achiev­ing ISO 27001 In­for­ma­tion Se­cu­rity Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. The ac­cred­i­ta­tion rep­re­sents a process of con­tin­ual im­prove­ment of our busi­ness and also demon­strates our un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to a strong cul­ture of qual­ity and se­cu­rity for Board­PAC.”

Ruwan Padukk­age, Se­nior Pro­gramme Manager at IronOne Tech­nolo­gies added: “ISO 27001 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is one of the best de­ci­sions by the com­pany be­cause it im­proved our en­tire sys­tem, such as se­cu­rity in­fra­struc­ture, risk iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and as­sess­ment method­ol­ogy, timely risk treat­ment plans, soft­ware devel­op­ment pro­cesses, and em­ployee aware­ness of in­for­ma­tion se­cu­rity. With this achieve­ment, we can as­sure a higher de­gree of se­cu­rity i n t he Board­PAC prod­uct.”

An im­por­tant as­pect of Board­PAC is its to­tally se­cure op­er­a­tional fea­tures. Clas­si­fied i nfor­ma­tion stored in an en­crypted form en­sures max­i­mum con­fi­den­tial­ity. An er­ror made by a com­pany sec­re­tary does not re­quire a reprint and re-cir­cu­la­tion of board pa­pers due to its ca­pa­bil­ity of ver­sion­ing. The ex­pense in­volved in procur­ing print­ing pa­per and the re­sult­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns are min­imised, if not en­tirely elim­i­nated.
