The Ministry of Social Development and Family (MSDF) has received an “ISO 2700” compliance certificate, which is granted by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) after MSDF applied modern international standards in the areas of information security and risk management.
Mr. Ahmed Khalil Abdullah, Chairman of Information Systems Affairs Committee at MSDF said: “compliance with the information security standard ISO 27001 has contributed to setting the documentation and vetting mechanisms to ensure adherence to the enforced regulations and laws locally and globally and applying the best practices in this field. He affirms that such step contributes to achieving the National Cyber Security Strategy, which the State of Qatar is seeking to achieve through MSDF”.
He clarifies that such standard ensures that the ministry pursues the policy of creating a comprehensive security awareness about information security and safeguards the personal information of the beneficiaries who capitalize on the services afforded by the ministry.
