ISO 27001

Secure your data and protect your corporate assets

ISO/IEC 27001 is an internationally recognised best practice framework for an information security management system (ISMS) which helps organisations manage the security of valuable assets such as financial data, intellectual property, employee details and information entrusted by third parties. By implementing an ISMS, potential risks can be recognised and appropriate controls introduced to help reduce and manage risk appropriately across people, processes and IT systems.

The ISO 27001 standard covers all formats of company information providing a structured framework for reducing and eliminating the possibility of an information security breach whether through attack, error or natural disaster.

What are the benefits of ISO/IEC 27001?

Data breaches have the potential to cause severe reputational harm to your business and can result in significant unnecessary expense. By implementing the ISO/IEC 27001 standard, you can be confident that access to data is properly authorised and sensitive company information remains well managed and secure. An ISMS will help safeguard the accessibility, confidentiality and security of your information as well as ensuring legal compliance.

Certification to ISO/IEC 27001:

  • Reduces the possibility of a potential security breach and mitigates against unacceptable security risks
  • Keeps your valuable corporate information secure, protecting against the loss of availability, confidentiality and integrity.
  • Enhances your company’s ability to respond and recover from any data breach and reduces the potential costs associated with breaches or loss of data
  • Positions you more competitively for tender and new market opportunities
  • Builds your reputation as a responsible company to do business with and, if managing information on behalf of others, demonstrates you are securely managing data to an internationally recognised standard

How can ISO27001 help organisations comply with the GDPR?

The Regulation states that having a recognised information security certification, such as ISO27001, will be a good way for an organisation to demonstrate that it protects its information assets using best-practice information security measures.

Is it for me?

ISO/IEC 27001 can be used by any organisation, large or small, regardless of its field of activity but is particularly suitable where the protection and confidentiality of information is vital, such as in the public finance, health, and IT sectors. The standard is also relevant for organisations who manage information on behalf of others as it can be used to reassure customers that their information is being protected in accordance with an internationally recognised standard.
