Ribose Achieves World's First NIST Cybersecurity Framework Certification by BSI


Verified compliance to NIST Cybersecurity
Framework at Tier 4 (Adaptive)

Ribose has become the world's first organization to certify to the NIST
Cybersecurity Framework (Tier 4) by BSI.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST)
Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) was mandated by U.S. Executive Order (EO)
13636, and was designed to protect critical infrastructure and vital
industries from cyberattacks. It also allows organizations to select a
"Tier" based on organizational practices – from Tier 1 (Partial) to Tier
4 (Adaptive) – indicating a progressive approach from informal and
reactive, to agile and risk-driven.

BSI was part of the team of experts that worked with NIST to develop the
CSF, and is the first certification body to offer certification to the
CSF. The program validates processes and evidence corresponding to the
chosen tier level, and is integrated with ISO/IEC 27001, which
comprehensively validates information security and risk
management practices.

John DiMaria, Global Product Champion for Information Security and
Business Continuity for BSI, said, "BSI has created the world's first
certification on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. The unique tiered
concept combines solid information security principles with application
flexibility, which will be valued by organizations worldwide.
We congratulate Ribose on being the first organization to receive our
NIST CSF certification at Tier 4, and commend its long-standing
commitment to international harmonization of cybersecurity providing the
highest levels of data protection."

Enoch Lee, General Manager of Hong Kong for BSI, added, "BSI has long
been recognized as a pioneer in information security management. The new
NIST Cybersecurity Framework certification program is a key component of
our efforts to maintain this leadership position."

According to Ronald Tse, founder of Ribose, "Achieving NIST CSF
certification at Tier 4 reaffirms our unwavering commitment to
protecting our customers' data based on verifiable cybersecurity. Our
approach builds upon a solid security foundation that includes
the selective Kitemark for Secure Digital Transactions certification, as
well as cloud security and privacy certification through ISO/IEC 27017
and ISO/IEC 27018."
