ISO IEC 27001 Certification

Information Security Management Systems

What is ISO 27001?

ISO/IEC 27001 is the leading international standard for information security management systems (ISMS). Worldwide, organisations implement and maintain an ISMS to

  • Protect data that is crucial to the business
  • Mitigate risk and ensure stable operations
  • Provide confidence to stakeholders and customers

PROTECT VITAL BUSINESS DATA and USE RESOURCES EFFICIENTLY

The ISMS standard offers a well-proven framework to help companies increase information security levels whilst improving cost-efficiencies. Watch the video to learn more about the benefits of an ISMS based on ISO/IEC 27001.

Manage information security risk

The ISO/IEC 27001 standard outlines a risk management process involving people, processes and IT systems, thereby providing a holistic approach to information security. The video below gives a step-by-step introduction to the principles of risk management according to the ISMS standard and can serve as a helpful guideline for the implementation of your infosec system.

ISO/IEC 27001 is an internationally recognised standard, published by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The standard specifies the requirements for implementing and maintaining an effective ISMS to protect against the root causes of information security risks. Organisations that achieve ISO/IEC 27001 certification strengthen their ability to protect themselves against cyberattacks and help prevent unwanted access to sensitive or confidential information. The scope of ISO/IEC 27001 is intended to cover all types of information, regardless of its form.

AMENDMENT ISO/IEC 27006

The international rules we are obliged to follow as a certification body are constantly reviewed and monitored by the respective committees. This process resulted in an amendment of ISO/IEC 27006, which is the relevant standard for certifying ISO/IEC 27001, published in March 2020. As result, TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH must implement the rules given in this amendment by end of March 2022, including a verification by our accreditation body, Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH. TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH strives to finalize this change as fast as possible. Part of the requirements for implementing the amendment is to inform existing customers about this change.

The requirements for your information security management system do not change with this amendment, only the internal processes of the certification body are affected. 

The ISO 27001 Management System certification is covered under the Sustainability-as-a-Service (SaaS) Programme, with 70% of qualified costs supported by Enterprise Singapore, as part of the Enterprise Sustainability Programme. Click here to learn more.
