Ribose awarded PAS 99 certification for integrated management systems

Achieves internationally certified corporate governance and compliance management

Hong Kong, 17 June 2014 – Ribose has achieved PAS 99:2012 certification, the internationally accepted framework for integrated management systems (IMS).

Ribose is the first collaboration platform in the world and the first organization in Hong Kong to achieve this certification. Ribose’s IMS integrates its existing business continuity and information security management systems, satisfying both ISO 22301:2012 and ISO 27001:2013, the international standards for business continuity and information security, respectively.

Ribose’s certification was awarded by BSI (British Standards Institution), the originator of the PAS 99, ISO 22301 and ISO 27001 standards. Certification is awarded only after an independent accredited auditor has thoroughly checked all applications, systems, processes and services.

PAS 99 is a framework for integrating management systems built on different management systems standards (MSS). It specifies requirements for streamlining and managing MSSs, allowing for improved business focus, a more universal approach to risk mitigation and improved operational efficiency.

“Ribose is dedicated to providing our users with the highest standards of service. Achieving PAS 99 certifies that our management systems are tightly integrated – including our highly dynamic information security management system, which has been awarded numerous security certifications such as ISO 27001, CSA STAR and CDSA CPS,” explained Ronald Tse, founder of Ribose. “We believe the holistic approach is key to effective collaboration, and we’ve taken that to heart in integrating our management systems – which will augment service for all users.”

Emmanuel Herve, Managing Director of BSI Hong Kong, stated: “By achieving PAS 99 certification for its IMS, Ribose has again demonstrated its commitment to industry-leading corporate governance. The certified efficiency of its management systems allows Ribose to focus its resources on enhancing its platform, and delivering effective solutions to users.”

One of the first organizations worldwide to achieve compliance to latest information security standard

Hong Kong, 25 March 2014 – Ribose has achieved certification for the latest information security standard ISO/IEC 27001:2013, covering all aspects of the company, including its social collaboration platform.

In addition to being the world’s first collaboration platform to achieve this certification, Ribose is also one of the first organizations worldwide, and the first organization in Hong Kong to do so. Ribose’s certification was awarded by BSI (British Standards Institution), the originator of the ISO/IEC 27001 standard.

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is the revised information security standard that supersedes ISO/IEC 27001:2005. This update includes significant improvements to security, covers risks such as identity theft, mobile devices and other online vulnerabilities, and provides a more streamlined approach leading to better risk management. Ribose’s previous ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification was also awarded by BSI.

“Ribose is committed to staying at the forefront of information security and protecting data, explains Ronald Tse, founder of Ribose.  Our state-of-the-art security system has already achieved highest merits in both CSA STAR certification and CDSA CPS certification. This latest certification shows that our system is dynamic and scalable, allowing us to protect information fully for our users. Our mission is to allow people to collaborate freely, and this certification gives people confidence that their information is always safe and fully protected.”

Emmanuel Herve, Managing Director of BSI Hong Kong, said: “Ribose has again demonstrated its commitment to information security by being one of the first organizations worldwide to achieve certification for the latest version of the information security standard. Organizations want to be reassured that any data stored externally is secure and service providers need to show they have appropriate security systems in place to manage information they handle. By attaining this certification, Ribose can do just that.”
