(TCSI): Solomon Islands’ largest mobile network and internet service provider, Our Telekom has been awarded the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Certification.
The international certification is in recognition of the company’s achievement of the highest international standards in protecting its customers’ data and information through its Datacenter hosting and broadband network services.
In a press statement, Our Telekom’s CEO Arthur Yen commended his company’s team effort in achieving the company milestone.
