To promote information security awareness across the organization, AAEON aims to establish a stable, international standard Information Security Management System.
(Taipei, Taiwan – November 24, 2022) AAEON (stock code: 6579), a major R&D company and manufacturer of leading IoT and artificial intelligence edge computing platforms has now been ISO27001-certified for one year. Following this milestone, it aims to establish a stable, international standard Information Security Management System (ISMS) to provide a solid foundation for global deployment.
The theft of corporate information has appeared in the news more and more in recent years, highlighting the challenges that both large and medium-sized enterprises face. In many cases, hacking and security breaches have caused enormous losses both financially and in intellectual property. In 2020, AAEON won the National Quality Award, and subsequently obtained their ISO27001 information security certification following the assessment and recommendation of the evaluation committee. Information security management is vital for companies, so AAEON is actively implementing ISO27001 principles to enhance its information security and protect customer transaction data.
The focus of an ISO27001 audit is to ensure that information security policies and objectives are established and compatible with the organization's strategic direction, and that the regulatory requirements are integrated into the organization's operations. The framework standards developed for information security maintenance and risk management are introduced to reduce threats and conflicts arising from information security incidents. Through clear objectives and indicators, organizations can effectively demonstrate their commitment to information security, protecting critical information and important assets, and further enhance trust in the company and its products. By obtaining ISO27001 information security management system certification, AAEON have shown they are able to meet the requirements of the Cyber Security Management Act, helping them to win projects from important governmental and international customers.
"Through the introduction of the certification process, we will take stock of the organization's information security management needs, understand opportunities and risks, set clear implementation objectives, and promote information security awareness and implementation of the information security system to all staff within the organization, to ensure the orderly and stable operation of the system. This is the main purpose behind implementing ISO27001 certification,” said Hank Peng, Senior Manager of AAEON’s Information Technology Department. "AAEON, which has always attached great importance to customer information security, has organized internal auditors across departments to conduct education and training on information security inventory and auditing, and implement annual information security education (e-Learning ISMS) to all colleagues. The spirit of ISO27001 is being thoroughly integrated into the daily work of all employees in the company,” Mr. Peng added.
