Morpho’s Albanian electronic document production site achieves ISO 27001 certification

Paris, January 30, 2012

Morpho (Safran group) announced today that it has achieved the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 certification for its identity management, identity card and passport personalization site in Tirana, Albania. This certification confirms that the infrastructure and processes implemented by Morpho's information security management systems meet the industry's most stringent security standards.

Morpho set up this concession in 2008 to provide the Albanian Ministry of the Interior with a complete, end-to-end secure e-ID card and e-Passport issuance solution, based on its cutting-edge MorphoCivis™ Suite, composed of biometric identity management and e-Document issuance products.

The ISO 27001 certification was awarded to Morpho following a rigorous auditing process by LSTI (La Sécurité des Technologies de L'Information) and covers the entire document personalization process: data verification, identity deduplication, investigation and document personalization.

"This ISO 27001 certification acknowledges Morpho's dedication to maintaining the highest security standards for the benefit of our customers across the world," said Jean-Paul Jainsky, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Morpho.
