Editor's note:

As a payment service provider, we constantly deal with important information — such as financial records and personal customer data — that we’re obligated to keep safe.

This is why we are committed to maintaining compliance with global industry standards and regulations. To further display our dedication, we recently implemented the ISO 27001 standard for information security management systems and the ISO 22301 standard for business continuity management systems.  

The ISO 27001 certification is an internationally recognized framework for managing and protecting sensitive information. Achieving compliance with the ISO 27001 standard required us to enforce an expansive set of measures & processes to ensure data confidentiality, integrity, and availability, which cover access controls, network security, application security, multi-factor authentication, incident management, and a range of other security controls. It also means that Kora undergoes regular audits to ensure that our information security management system (ISMS) is up-to-date and effective.

We also achieved compliance with the ISO 22301 standard which provides a framework for establishing, implementing, and maintaining processes that help keep our services available and uninterrupted even if the event of system failures or cyber-attacks.  

Security compliance and business continuity are at the core of what we do because we know how much our merchants depend on us for our stellar service. 

It is with great pleasure to inform you that Kora is now an ISO 27001 & ISO 22301 certified organization. Acquiring these certifications is an important milestone because it represents our continued dedication to information security and business continuity. We remain committed to providing you with All The Support You Need™️.
