History
 
 

Globalization has changed the world's economic landscape. Increased flows of goods, capital and services in global markets reshape the infrastructure of industries and result in closer integration of countries around the world. To increase the nation's competitiveness, many developed-countries have invested in the development of a National Information Infrastructure (NII). A nation-wide interconnected network of communications would provide private sector access to its country's public information, computing recourses, and interactive services in a technological neutral manner. Benefits of a well-implemented NII include promoting information transparency and fair access, widening public participation in socio-economic developments, reducing the cost of government services, and accelerating efficiency and innovation in industrial developments.

In 1996, Dr. Han-Min Hsia, advisor to the President of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and ex-minister without portfolio in charge of technology policy, established National Information Infrastructure Enterprise Promotion Association (hereinafter NIIEPA). NIIEPA is the first non-profit organization that promotes a national information infrastructure in Taiwan and has introduced many cutting-edge technology developments and applications into Taiwan. It has successfully served as a trendsetter as well as a bridge between the industry and government in Taiwan's ICT developments. Today NIIEPA continues to play a crucial role in facilitating public interest with the government in domestic ICT policy making. Internationally, NIIEPA also actively participates in global/regional ICT and Internet Governance research, and takes part in global organizations such as IGF, ICANN, and WSIS to shape the future of the internet.

In 2005, NIIEPA began to provide IT Governance Advisory services as an integral part of its core missions. The services provided are ISMS, PIMS, ITSM and cloud security certification consultation and training. NIIEPA has over 20 consultants with an average of 10 years' experience in IT management and governance. In nearly a decade, NIIEPA has serviced more than a hundred clients in the government organizations, academic institutions, and industrial corporations.
