Izmir University of Economics (IUE) qualified to receive an international certificate by establishing a strong technological infrastructure that enables the protection of all corporate data, including students’ information. Izmir University of Economics, which fulfilled all the obligations in terms of confidentiality and integrity of corporate data as a result of a 6-month work, has been granted the ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management System Certificate.
All changes being implemented by IUE to provide information security had been thoroughly examined by PROKS Certification Limited Company, which is authorized by the Turkish Accreditation Agency (TURKAK). Thanks to all these work, awareness of academics and students regarding information security has been increased. Work regarding improvement of the technological infrastructure, which prevents unauthorized access to corporate data, will continue in days to come. PROKS Company will be conducting regular inspections.
“WE MET ALL THE INTERNATIONAL REQUIREMENTS”
In his speech at the meeting that took place at IUE Board of Trustees Hall, Rector, Prof. Murat Aşkar stated that the awarded certificate was very significant in terms of fulfilling all the international requirements and improving the corporate image of the University. Prof. Aşkar said, “We are working and doing our best to improve the opportunities we offer to our students and allow them to have a better quality of education. In doing so, we are not only improving our physical conditions, but technological infrastructure as well. We are a large community with more than ten thousand students, academics, and employees. Ensuring the information security of everyone involved is a great responsibility. We had done extensive work on campus for 6 months. The infrastructure we established for information security had been inspected by an independent company also. We, as Izmir University of Economics, qualified for this certificate. The fact that we fulfilled all the international requirements, had been certified.”
