HONG KONG, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- 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."
