ISO 27001 is the best-known standard in the ISO family providing requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). Internationally recognized ISO 27001 is an excellent framework which helps organizations manage and protect their information assets so that they remain safe and secure. It helps you to continually review and refine the way you do this, not only for today, but also for the future. By implementing the standard, organizations can identify security risks and put controls in place to manage or eliminate them, gain stakeholder and customer trust that their confidential data is protected, and help achieve preferred supplier status helping to win new business.
Making sensitive information secure should be a matter of priority for every organisation. Hackers are becoming smarter and technology is increasing their ability to access and compromise sensitive data. Achieving and maintaining ISO 27001 certification gives your clients a guarantee that your organisation has implemented best-practice information security methods.
Why is it important?
Having an international standard for information security allows a common framework for managing security across business and across borders. With an ever more connected world, the security of information is increasing in importance.
Data and information needs to be safe, secure, and accessible. The security of information is important for personal privacy, confidentiality of financial and health information and the smooth functioning of systems and supply chains that we rely on in today’s interconnected world.
ISO 27001 provides the framework for you to effectively manage risk, select security controls and most importantly, a process to achieve, maintain and prove compliance with the standard.
