ISO 27001 INFORMATION SECURITY MANAGEMENT

ISO 27001:2013 is the international standard that provides a framework for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) to provide continued confidentiality, integrity and availability of information as well as legal compliance. ISO 27001 certification is essential for protecting your most vital assets like employee and client information, brand image and other private information. The ISO standard includes a process-based approach to initiating, implementing, operating and maintaining your ISMS.

ISO 27001 implementation is an ideal response to customer and legal requirements such as the GDPR and potential security threats including:
• Cyber crime
• Personal data breaches
• Vandalism / terrorism
• Fire / damage
• Misuse
• Theft
• Viral attack

So far in 2019, around 32 percent of businesses identified cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months.
The ISO 27001 standard is also structured to be compatible with other management systems standards, such as ISO 9001 and it is technology and vendor neutral, which means it is completely independent of any IT platform. As such, all members of the company should be educated on what the standard means and how it applies throughout the organization.

Achieving accredited ISO 27001 certification shows that your company is dedicated to following the best practices of information security. Additionally, ISO 27001 certification provides you with an expert evaluation of whether your organization’s information is adequately protected.
