ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS)

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised information security standard that integrates well with other ISO Standards. The objective of the standard is to "provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an Information Security Management System". Further, "The design and implementation of an organization's ISMS is influenced by their needs and objectives, security requirements, the process employed and the size and structure of the organization". Therefore, ISO 27001 does allow flexibility for organisations to assess their whole business or to limit the scope to a particular function.

Contracts, particularly where the end client is a government body or one which holds sensitive information, are increasingly requiring certification to this ISO Standard. Add to this the frequent loss of data and the negative media attention this attracts, implementing robust processes and certification are becoming a must.

By implementing an ISO 27001 management system you benefit from:
  • Reduced risk of security incidents
  • Confidence in information protection
  • Reduced risk of fines
  • Protection of the organisation's reputation
  • Improved client and investor confidence
