What is ISO 27001?

The ISO 27001 standard for information security management systems (ISMS) is internationally recognised. It's a management system tool to help organisations better manage their information assets and certification can help protect systems against computer-assisted fraud, cyber attack, sabotage and viruses. 

Breaches in information security can allow vital information to be accessed, stolen, corrupted or lost. How confident are you that you have appropriate controls and procedures in place to avoid such incidents?

ISO 27001 follows Annex SL, the same high-level structure in all new and revised ISO management system standards, including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. It uses risk assessment and business impact analysis to identify and manage risk to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information.

Increasingly your clients and prospective clients will want to know how safe your IT systems are and more organisations now see ISO 27001 certification as a prerequisite for doing business and assures customers and other stakeholders that you take your obligations seriously.
