The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard provides companies of any size and from all sectors of activity with guidance for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving ISMS. Conformity with ISO/IEC 27001:2013 means that IXCI’s ISMS and our indexes have put in place a system that can manage risks related to the security of data owned or handled, and our ISMS system is in line with all the best practices and principles enshrined by this International Standard.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is important to an organization, with cyber-crime is on the rise and new threats constantly emerging. It helps organizations become risk-aware and proactively identify and address weaknesses by promoting a holistic approach to information security: vetting people, policies and technology. An ISMS implemented according to this standard is a tool for risk management, cyber-resilience and operational excellence.
Irene Wong, Founder & CEO, IX Capital International Limited, said: “Completion of ISO/ IEC 27001:2013 audit marks an achievement and milestone for the company in 2023. It represents that IXCI’s ISMS system is well architected. In terms of index management, we undergo dual authorization in quarterly index review. We obtain prices by averaging from ten selected exchanges’ API and have internal checking procedures. We have our internal risk management control by separating different IXCI functionality components on cloud, which means when malfunction occurs, the extent of impacts can be mitigated. We also have backup and emergency procedures by storing data in two separate and independent servers locating from two different countries.”
Mr. Chris Yau, Deputy Director of Products and Services Development, China and Hong Kong of Knowledge Solutions of SGS in Hong Kong, said: “By obtaining this certification, IXCI assures its customers, partners, and stakeholders of is utmost priority to service availability, data integrity, and information security and the implementation of stringent measures to protect sensitive data. This not only serves as a competitive advantage but also reinforces IXCI’s commitment to prioritizing and protecting the integrity of data.”
