The Information Services Department (ISD) provides information technology (IT) solutions and services across all areas of the KIO to provide a strategic and efficient foundation for KIO. As an active fund manager, KIO has mandatory requirements for a wide range of complex trading, accounting, and reporting systems. These must be aligned to industry standards and global market practice.
KIO requires very high levels of automation, which includes electronic trading, straight- through processing and real-time data and information feeds. ISD provides multiple layers of advanced protection and real-time data security in line with advanced the information security standards.
Provisions for high availability of systems and disaster recovery are fully implemented. ISD has certified staff working in alignment with the international standards of ITIL and PRINCE2 for IT Service Management and Project Management.
