CBs to be accredited by SAC will be assessed based on ISO/IEC 17021-1 and ISO/IEC 27006 Information technology security techniques – Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of information security management systems. As part of the development of new programme for ISMS certification, SAC organised a training on ISO 27006 on 27-28 Sep 18 and the trainer was Ms Noriko Tominaga from ISMS Accreditation Center, Japan.   

Accreditation for the ISMS Certification programme is now open for CB’s application via SACiNet.
