About ISO 27001 Information Security Management

All About ISO 27001 Information Security Management

The International Organization of Standardization is dedicated to the development of management systems that help organisations create frameworks for the successful running of their business. Having a standardised management model makes it extremely easy for any or all businesses large or small to be able to implement best practice, optimise its processes and procedures and comply with current laws, rules and regulations that apply to the company, sector and country it operates in.

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is an international standard dealing with information security management. It can be used in any business, large or small and is not sector specific. The ISO 27001 standard brings together policies, procedures, and recommendations on how to establish working processes for building and maintaining an organisations information risk management systems.

ISO 27001 consists of twelve well-defined sections that cover:

  • Assessing your organisations risk
  • Establishing a security policy
  • Organising information security
  • Setting up an asset management programme
  • Setting up a good plan for human resources security
  • Establish a physical and environmental security plan
  • Establish a plan for communication and operations management
  • Establish an access control plan
  • Establish a comprehensive plan for acquiring, development and maintaining information systems
  • Management of information security incidents
  • Set up a way to manage business continuity
  • Set up compliance management

Note: When it comes to establishing specific controls that an organisation chooses to implement, the ISO 27001 does not mandate anything, it simply supplies a checklist so that the business can make the right decisions that fit in with its system.

What types of business should consider ISO 27001 certification?

In this day and age, organisations, large or small cannot afford to ignore information security… they do so at their peril. An organisation is lost without its data, no matter what form it takes; hard copy or digital. This is especially true of data that is held in digital form since more and more companies are operating online with extensive Internet access. With so much vital company information potentially at risk, it is very important that a business has robust safeguards in place to help to minimise the exposure of its sensitive data to possible breaches, theft or corruption. Regardless of size, it is extremely important that every organisation ensures its information is secure.

Benefits of ISO 27001 certification

Taking your organisations data security seriously is not only just a good idea, it can be the difference between landing new clients or losing them to a competitor. Being able to say that your organisation operates well-established, robust information security systems and is formally certified to the ISO 27001 standard can create instant credibility and confirm to clients, suppliers and prospects that your data… and theirs is safe and secure.
