ISO/IEC 27001 – Information Security Management
ISO/IEC 27001 certification positions organisations to mitigate information security and cybersecurity risk.
ISO/IEC 27001, often abbreviated as ISO 27001, was published collaboratively by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) with the intent to help organisations mitigate the risk of privacy and data breaches. Information security breaches may result in the loss of millions, even billions of private organizational records and sensitive customer data. Companies are under intense global pressure to demonstrate they are effectively and competently safeguarding against data breaches.
Companies worldwide have responded to the pressures by implementing ISO/IEC 27001, the only auditable international standard that defines the requirements of an information security management system. It is a documented set of policies, procedures, processes and systems that manages the risks of data loss from cyber-attacks, hacks, data leaks or theft.
The ISO/IEC 27001 standard formally specifies the implementation of a management system and provides organizations with the requirements needed to bring information security risks under management control. The standard uses an integrated risk management framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organization's management processes. The standard applies to all organizations, regardless of size, industry or business type. Companies can use ISO/IEC 27001 certification to demonstrate the maturity of their information security environment, meet contractual obligations, or gain a competitive uniqueness.
