MTN Mobile Money, the leading Mobile Financial Services operator in Ghana, is pleased to announce that it has received the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification.
MTN Mobile Money is the first to receive this certification in Ghana’s telecommunications industry. The certification was granted after a rigorous assessment was conducted by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance (LRQA).
The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an information security standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electro-technical Commission (IEC). The certification specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of Mobile Money operations in Ghana.

Announcing the certification at a recent media engagement, MTN Ghana CEO Ebenezer Asante said, “this gives credence to MTN’s commitment to conform to international standards in the delivery of Mobile Money services. MTN Mobile Money is working to provide the highest standards of service to its customers.
