Dubai Taxi Corporation is pleased to announce that it has recently been awarded the International Standard Organization (ISO) 27001:2013 Certification from global certification registrar, TÜV Middle-East member of TÜV NORD GROUP.

The ISO certification is a testament to DTC focus on adopting and implementing global standards and best practices to ensure effectiveness, efficiency, confidentiality, and integrity in its day to day operations. DTC contracted the services to security specialist firm ixtel as consultants and the entire certification process was completed in less than eight months.

ISO 27001 requires that management systematically examines the organization’s information security risks, taking account of the threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts; designs and implements a coherent and comprehensive suite of information security controls and/or other forms of risk treatment (such as risk avoidance or risk transfer) to address those risks that are deemed unacceptable; and adopts an overarching management process to ensure that the information security controls continue to meet the organization’s information security needs on an ongoing basis.

His Excellency Dr. Yousif Al Ali, Chief Executive Officer of DTC, said that that certification is important to ensure the latest and best standards in information security: “By acquiring ISO 27001:2013 certification, DTC has enhanced its ability to formulate the company’s information security policy and develop its internal requirements and objectives in line with international standards. The certificates also help the company implement appropriate technological and management controls aimed at reducing information security risks and ensuring the effective management of these risks.

“The ISO 27001 certification validates our sustained efforts in leveraging our leadership role in Dubai to achieve operational efficiency while maintaining core business values that are aligned to the Dubai Smart Government initiative.”

ISO 27001:2013 is a specification for information security management, which is only awarded to companies that can meet the standards as judged by accredited, independent auditors.
