Eng. Mohammad Abdulla AI Bader, IT Director at AI Meera expressed his views, stating: “This certificate validates that AI Meera meets strict international requirements to ensure the security, fairness, and quality of the data shared with us. Our customers can enjoy Al Meera’s expansive digital services with confidence that their data is protected to the highest standard.”

ISO 27001:2013 standard sets out requirements for the establishment, implementation, maintenance, and continuous improvement of the information security management system. An ISMS is a comprehensive approach to the handling of confidential business information to keep it secure. Adopting an ISMS is a strategic decision for businesses, involving people, processes, and IT systems, to keep their assets secure in any sector.

A new system of practice has been built around the IT security protocols, processes, rules, and practices to promote and regulate information security management within AI Meera Consumer Goods Company (Q.P.S.C).

Al Meera, Qatar’s favourite neighbourhood retailer, operates the widest network of retail branches in the country, with plans to further expand its network that will include digital capabilities.
