Businesses dealing with virtual assets must be certified as Information Security Management System (ISMS). It is a demonstration by an enterprise or agency that the level of information protection operations and management meets certain criteria.

As it is a state-guaranteed system, it naturally has to go through a difficult screening process. ISMS certification requires passage of 80 assessment articles, and for ISMS-P there are 102 items.


If businesses fail to obtain it, they will be fined up to 30 million won. However, the bigger blow is that they won’t gain trust in information protection from customers. In other words, it is difficult to operate a company without it.



Post-management is more difficult than obtaining certification.


Many virtual asset companies find ISMS certification difficult. In order to meet the standards, a management system should be established and reviewed, and defects should be supplemented through an examination process that takes months at most. This process will cost a considerable amount of time and money.

Acquiring it is not the end of everything. Afterwards, post-management is as difficult as obtaining the certification. Companies that have received certificates must undergo post-examination every year and re-certification examination after three years, the expiration date of the certificate. The certification will be automatically cancelled if they fail to pass the re-certification. Therefore, post-management and re-certification are a significant burden for companies.


From ISMS certification to post-management, consulting firms are emerging.
