Ribose has achieved certification and renewal to SS 584:2020, the third edition of the Singapore Standard for Multi-Tiered Cloud Security (MTCS) at the highest Tier 3, accredited by the Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC), having transitioned from its certification to SS 584:2015.
The MTCS certification scheme is the world’s first multi-tiered cloud security certification, differentiating tiers of security requirements depending on risks faced by the provider. MTCS is defined by the SS 584 cloud security standard, which is approved by the Information Technology Standards Committee (ITSC) with support from Enterprise Singapore and IMDA Singapore. The latest edition of SS 584:2020 improves on SS 584:2015 through closer alignment with ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and providing additional controls on emerging technologies, such as zero trust and continuous monitoring.
Ribose completed its transition assessment audit to SS 584:2020 from SS 584:2015 in January 2022, observed by a Witness Assessor from the Singapore Accreditation Council, and fully renewed its certification in November 2022, both by BSI. Ribose was the world’s first organization to achieve certification to MTCS when the program was first launched with SS 584:2013, and first to achieve transition towards SS 584:2015, also supported by BSI.
“Our users work with valuable digital assets and are therefore heavily reliant on the underlying security of cloud platforms. MTCS has been a pioneering certification scheme since its inception by setting a high bar for cybersecurity of cloud service providers.” noted Ronald Tse, founder of Ribose. “By upgrading our MTCS certification to SS 584:2020 at Tier 3, our users are assured that their information remain secure under the most stringent requirements designed for mission-critical data.”
Charlene Loo, Managing Director of BSI Singapore said, “The MTCS certification scheme is the world’s first cloud security standard that covers multiple tiers of cloud security. With the proliferation of data breaches and malicious attacks, organizations need to employ the most proficient and best-in-class cybersecurity strategy available. As a SAC-accredited certification body, BSI is proud to support Ribose’s commitment to ensure cloud security through its SS 584:2020 transition.”
