Multisys earns ISO 27001:2013, welcomes new CEO

Multisys Technologies Corp. CEO Victor Aliwalas

Following a two-stage audit conducted by international certification body TÜV Rheinland from December 2021 to June this year, Multisys Technologies Corporation was formally awarded the certification of global standards for its management system of information security.

Multisys is now a certified compliant of international standard in Information Security Management System (ISO 27001:2013). This certification makes Multisys one of the first homegrown software companies in the Philippines to have achieved the ISO certification.

The audit included reviews on whether or not Multisys’ ISMS policies and procedures are able to meet the globally recognized framework in the security management of data assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties. The company has achieved this feat despite the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
