Safeguard your cloud services through robust information security controls

Safeguard your cloud services through robust information security controls

What is ISO/IEC 27017 and who does it apply to?

Ever more businesses are offering cloud-based services to customers, and so purchasing departments increasingly demand evidence that data stored on those cloud servers is safe. ISO/IEC 27017 is a set of guidelines for safeguarding cloud-based environments and minimising the potential risk of security incidents.

The standard addresses topics such as:

  • Asset ownership
  • Recovery plans if the cloud service provider (CSP) is dissolved
  • Disposal of assets containing sensitive information
  • Segregation and storage of data
  • Alignment of security management for virtual and physical networks

Any organisation which provides cloud-based services can benefit from ISO/IEC 27017 certification – from online email providers and document management platforms to cloud-based apps and tools. It demonstrates to customers that you are following the most stringent cloud services security standards and have processes in place to manage any unforeseen problems.

How can ISO/IEC 27017 certification help your business?

If your organisation provides cloud services your customers will want assurances that their data, documents, messages and activity are protected under any circumstances. They will also want evidence that they will be able to retrieve and move their data whenever they wish. ISO/IEC 27017 cloud standard gives them that confidence.

Becoming ISO/IEC 27017 certified provides multiple benefits:

  • Reduces operational risk

    By adhering to the ISO/IEC 27017 guidelines you can efficiently analyse vulnerabilities and mitigate against data breaches, as well as regulatory fines and penalties.
  • Win market trust

    An independent third-party assessment demonstrates your commitment to global information security practices. Winning stakeholder confidence delivers you a competitive advantage as potential investors and customers identify you as a responsible partner.
  • Define and clarify responsibilities

    ISO/IEC 27017 clearly outlines the exact relationship, roles, rights and responsibilities between cloud service customers and cloud service providers, enabling you to become a preferred CSP and expand your business globally.
