The TaiwanICDF Has Supported Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to Get Her First ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) International Certificate

The TaiwanICDF Has Supported Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to Get Her First ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) International Certificate

After almost a year of work, the TaiwanICDF supported Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) to get her first ISO 27001 Information Security Management System Certificate on 8th November, 2015. It is also a milestone for the SVG ICT Technical Cooperation Project, which aims to enhance the ability of information system security management and the e-government development for SVG.In recent years, the TaiwanICDF's overseas assistance, such as the SVG ICT Technical Cooperation Project, has emphasized on borrowing expertise from Taiwan's comparative advantages. By leveraging the information technology and advisory momentum, TaiwanICDF has strengthened the capability of information security management for the Information Technology Services Division (ITSD), a sub department under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade, Commerce and Information Technology of SVG. The TaiwanICDF has also assisted the ITSD in reducing the potential managerial risk and introducing the management system, so as to improve SVG’s information security and administrative efficiency. In addition, officials involved in this project will serve as seed teachers to spread the information security expertise to other departments of the SVG government.

SVG is the third country, with Taiwan’s assistance, to earn the ISO 27001 international certificate after Saint Lucia and Belize. Such achievements embody the profound influence of Taiwan's overseas ICT assistance.
