Gulf Air has been recognised by Bureau Veritas, a global leader in Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC), for successfully upgrading its Information Security Management System to the latest ISO 27001:2013 standard.

The standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an Information Security Management System.

The certification was awarded to Maher Salman Al Musallam, Gulf Air A/chief executive officer, by Zulfiqar Haider, chief executive of certification at bureau Veritas Bahrain at the awards ceremony which was attended by members of Gulf Air’s Information Security Committee. 

Al Musallam said: “As a global airline, much of our work involves handling sensitive and critical information, including passenger data. We are committed to providing the highest standard of Information Security and this involves constantly assessing our capabilities and modifying/enhancing them. I am delighted to receive this upgraded certification, reflecting our implementation of a strict framework to guarantee the protection and security of information across the board - further helping to achieve customer satisfaction.” 

“Gulf Air is considered a reputable operator in the GCC region maintaining information security standards and meeting ISO requirements. The same was witnessed by our assessors during the certification process. This upgrade will enhance customer confidence and satisfaction in doing business with Gulf Air,” added Haider.
