SMICSemiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC) has had its S2/FAB 8 pass the BSI ISO27001 audit for information security management systems. This is the first of SMIC’s fabs to gain the certification.

"The protection of customers' information, particularly IP (intellectual property) and trade secrets, is a top priority for SMIC,” noted SMIC Mask Shop Director Jesse Huang. “By providing continuous training and establishing information security standards, we strive to strengthen awareness of information security among our employees. In SMIC's mask shop, GDSII and Mebes documents are transferred via an independent server to ensure maximum data and network security. Furthermore, we implement added security by encrypting data files. The ISO 27001 certification recognizes SMIC's efforts and prompts us to further perfect our information security protection measures in strengthening our partnerships with global customers."

ISO 27001 is the only existing secure information security management standard.
