In the digital age, data holds immense value and drives the success of organisations and businesses. Protecting valuable data from potential risks is crucial. Implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS) is essential for companies to safeguard their information assets effectively. An ISMS comprises procedures and policies that systematically manage the security and potential threats associated with an organisation’s information security.
ISO 27001 provides a framework for an effective implementation of ISMS. It defines the risk-based governance structure, allowing the organisation to select applicable information security controls that best suit its environment and business needs. ISO 27001 empowers companies to protect their data efficiently, risk-based, and methodically. It allows them to customise practices to suit their information systems while complying with essential requirements, such as implementing established controls.
The ISO 27001 framework offers flexibility for businesses to adopt controls based on their specific needs and suitability. It includes 93 controls categorised into 4 themes, namely organisational, people, physical and technological. While the framework provides flexibility, there are vital requirements that organisations must follow for the effective implementation and continuity of an ISMS.
In adopting the ISO 27001 framework, businesses must comply with specific mandatory requirements and documentation. These include scoping the areas of the ISMS, establishing security policies and objectives, conducting risk assessment and treatment, and more, as outlined in the framework's clauses and sub-clauses. In ensuring the effective implementation of ISMS, regular internal audits and management reviews are mandated. This will provide the management with a complete evaluation of the ISMS implementation. Compliance with these requirements ensures adherence to the ISO 27001 framework and strengthens the effectiveness and efficiency of the ISMS.
The last version of ISO 27001 that came into effect in 2013 was revised recently. The core requirements remain the same as mentioned in Clauses 4 to 10 in the ISO 27001 framework and can be incorporated by the businesses as per their scenario:
