Information is critical to the operation of any business. Being certified to ISO 27001 will help you to manage and protect your valuable information assets.
ISO 27001 is the only auditable international standard which defines the requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The standard is designed to ensure the selection of adequate and proportionate security controls.
This helps you to protect your information assets and give confidence to any interested parties, especially your customers. Like most international standards, the standard adopts a process approach for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving your ISMS.
ISO 27001 is suitable for any organization, in any sector or part of the world. The standard is particularly suitable where the protection of information is critical, such as in the finance, health, public and IT sectors.
ISO 27001 is also applicable to organizations who manage information on behalf of others, such as IT outsourcing companies: it can be used to assure customers that their information is being protected in accordance with a recognized standard.
ISO 27001:2005 helps organizations to implement information security management systems (ISMS) to deal with increasingly competitive markets and the security requirements of customers, both implicit and explicit.
