Protect Your Information Assets With ISO 27001

26/06/19



Safeguard your company’s information and prove to your stakeholders that your information security meets the highest global standard.

What is ISO 27001?

The pioneer international management systems standard for information security (ISMS) was last updated in 2013 to align with the High Level Structure (HLS) common to most international management systems. ISO 27001 is a specification that enables certification, and heads a growing family of related standards that combine to offer comprehensive guidance and support for organisations that want to systematically understand their vulnerabilities, identify the risks to the security of that information in order to ensure its availability, integrity and confidentiality for their customers, shareholders, regulatory authorities and other stakeholders.

Who is ISO 27001 for?

Many types of organisations are dependent on fast moving and frequently updated information in today’s environment of increasingly electronic communication. Information security is not just for IT companies though, it covers all information, so any organisation that has sensitive data or critical information stored or transferred in any medium, whether it is physical, written, spoken, emailed, app generated or completely cloud based, should consider applying the rigorous information risk methodologies laid out in the ISO 27000 series. It is not just large companies, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) with less than 250 employees, are increasingly becoming the target of cyber-attacks, with research showing that whereas 18% of cyber-attacks were aimed at SMEs in 2011, it had risen to 43% in 2015*. The proportion of SMEs actually experiencing a cyber-security breach or attack in the last year was 33%, with 51% of medium sized and 65% of large firms being targeted according to another survey**.

Why implement ISO 27001?

- Base risk management decisions on strategic business objectives and provide a defined level of assurance
- Focus on critical information in any form: digital, paper, video, voice
- Enhance information security metrics and reporting to justify ongoing and increasing investment in effective controls
- Take a comprehensive risk based view on implementing controls
