Edge Technology Group, a global technology advisory and fully-managed IT service provider catering for hedge funds, private equity firms and family offices worldwide, has been awarded the International Standard Organisation (ISO) 27001 certification for its information security systems’ infrastructure and operations supporting its Hong Kong based client offerings.
This recognition demonstrates Edge’s commitment to a reliable, adaptable, risk-based security program across its global organisation.
The ISO 27001 Certification is one of the most widely accepted and globally recognised security standards for organisations that identify, prevent and defend potential security vulnerabilities. Edge TG Hong Kong Limited is the latest Edge office to achieve ISO 27001 Certification, following the Edge UK office which received its ISO 27001 Certification in 2016. The management system was inspected by BSI, the British Standards Institution, and accredited by ANAB.
Established by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), the certification demands an organisation meet the highest standard for information security management in areas such as data security and business continuity. It ensures quality throughout every level of an organisation’s IT infrastructure stack, including asset management, access control, human resource security, incident management, and application security.
“This certification demonstrates Edge’s commitment to the ongoing maintenance and development of a global security framework, further underscoring the central role information security and data protection play in our company’s business process,” says Emily Randall (pictured), Managing Director & Head of Asia Pacific at Edge Technology Group. “This is just another example of our dedication to delivering best-in-class solutions to meet the security and privacy needs of our financial clients, regulators, and institutional investors.”
“Edge’s overall strategy is to ensure that our systems comply with the highest international and regional standards, and that our services are based on globally accepted protocols,” says Jim Nekos, CEO of Edge Technology Group. “Leveraging the ISO framework for our security implementation has provided Edge with a common language as we continue to deploy consistent controls and procedures throughout our global organisation.”
