Jordan-headquartered advisory firm Aldar International for Governance Consultancy (AIGC) has obtained an ISO certification for the quality and robustness of its information security.

From its base in Amman, and further offices in Jeddah and Riyadh, AIGC helps clients across the Middle East on topics including risk, compliance, internal audit, corporate governance, and business forensics.

Working with clients across sectors, in particular financial services institutions such as banks, insurers, regulators and asset management companies, AIGC has a key responsibility for keeping the data of its stakeholders safe and complying with the highest standards around confidentiality, ethics and more.

With the ISO 27001:2022 certificate now on board, AIGC can now demonstrate to its stakeholders that its IT security operations are up to the most stringent standards in the landscape.

“This is a big milestone for the firm,” stated AIGC in a release. “The certification is widely recognized and demonstrates an organization’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards of information security, assuring stakeholders that their data is handled with the utmost care and security reaffirming our dedication to upholding the highest standards of data security and confidentiality.”

Indeed, achieving ISO 27001:2022 certification requires an elaborate process that includes a risk assessment, implementing security controls, creating policies and procedures, and undergoing regular audits to ensure ongoing compliance. Globally, some 35,000 companies have obtained the ISO 27001 standard, with AIGC certified on the latest version (2022 version).

Since its inception in 2009, AIGC has served more than 2,000 clients across the region. Last year, the firm was named among the Middle East’s top consulting firms for risk & compliance services.
