ISO 27001 CERTIFICATION - INFORMATION SECURITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (ISMS CERTIFICATION)

WHAT IS ISO 27001?

ISO/IEC 27001 is the leading international standard for information security management. Worldwide, organisations implement and maintain ISO 27001 information security management systems (ISMS) to keep crucial information assets secure. The standard outlines a risk management process involving people, processes and IT systems, thereby providing a holistic approach to information security.

THE ISO/IEC 27001 CERTIFICATION PROVIDES YOUR ORGANISATION WITH MULTIPLE BENEFITS:

The ISO/IEC 27001 compliance focuses on the progress and maintenance of your organisation’s (information security management system) ISMS, an all-encompassing method of managing data protection practices. With this compliance, you can:

• Protect the confidentiality of your information; ensure the integrity of business data and the availability of your IT systems

• Have a competitive advantage. Provide confidence to stakeholders and customers that you are maintaining the highest standards for information security

• Establish robust procedures with ISMS 27001 to reduce disruptions to critical processes and the financial losses associated with a security breach, theft, corruption, loss, cyber-crime, vandalism, terrorism, fire, misuse, and viral attacks

• Adopt a process-based approach for implementing, establishing, monitoring, operating, maintaining, and improving your information security management system

• Demonstrate compliance with internationally recognised ISO/IEC 27001 standard for information security, fulfil legal obligations, and comply with the regulations (e.g. SOX)

• Achieve comprehensive protection, including that of assets, shareholders, and directors

• Reduce costs associated with security breaches and their consequences
