NEC Payments today announced that it has completed the annual external audit of its Integrated Management System in compliance with ISO9001 Quality Management System and ISO27001 Information Security Management System. The annual audit was completed by TUV Nord, a leading international ISO audit firm with offices in Bahrain.
The ISO9001/ISO27001 Integrated Management System is a key component of the business process and controls framework created by NEC Payments to enable it to operate its financial services products and FinTech platform in compliance with local regulatory standards and international best practices on information security and quality improvement. Hussain Sayed, Head of Operations at NEC Payments said ‘Building and operating an ISO9001/ISO27001 compliant environment has provided the company with a firm foundation upon which to grow its business in Bahrain and internationally. The business process framework and controls that we have developed and implemented ensure that quality and information security are primary considerations in every area of our day to day activities, whether that be the products and services that we offer our customers, internal technology development and infrastructure management, our administration and human resources.’
Andrew Sims, CEO, NEC Payments commented ‘Achieving the first annual audit of these complex and far-reaching standards represents a great achievement by the whole team at NEC Payments, especially considering that the external auditor was not able to find any instances on non-compliance at all, and only made a very few improvement recommendations. I, and my fellow Directors, are proud of the company’s achievements and are committed to continuing to invest time and resources in initiatives like the ISO9001/ISO27001 Integrated Management System that support our business objectives and help to create a trusted environment for our customers and partners.’
