SunTrust Bank Nigeria Gets Two Industry Certifications

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Two certifications have been granted to SunTrust bank Nigeria Limited, indicating the premium place on high operational standards by the financial institution.

Business Post gathered that the lender was awarded ISO/IEC 20071:2013 Certification by the Professional Evaluation and Certification Board (PECB) Canada, a certification body and leading organization in audit management, systems and processes.

It was also given the payment card industry data security standard (PCIDSS) certification by Digital Jewels, an Information Value Chain Consulting and Capacity Building Firm with a focus on IT Governance, Risk & Compliance and deep competencies in Information Security, Information Assurance, Project Management, e-business & Knowledge Capacity Development.

While ISO/IEC27001:2013 Information Security Management Systems is the international best practice standard for information security which provides a set of standardized requirements for an information security management system,  PCIDSS compliance is essential to any organization that processes, stores, and transports payment cards.

In a statement issued by the bank on Thursday, it explained that, “These certifications are in line with our ethos of securing our systems against cyber threats and a proof of our commitment to provide maximum protection for our client’s data.

“These certifications by PECB & Digital Jewels are a clear indication of the strength of our investments in people, process and technology for enhancing the customer experience by improving adequate information security.”
