What is ISO 27001?
You need to keep your systems and your data safe from all manner of threats: external and internal, intentional and unintentional.
An information security management system (ISMS) is a way of controlling all these risks to your business so your systems, technology, data and reputation remain intact.
Improving your ISMS to the level required by ISO 27001 provides added reassurance that your business is securing information, meeting regulations and staying abreast of new threats. It also helps differentiate you from the competition.
How Can ISO 27001 Help My Business?
Having ISO 27001 marks you out as being serious about safeguarding your IT and data assets. Once the domain of software companies and corporates, more and more SMES, especially those which hold large amounts of client data (or particularly sensitive data), are choosing to set themselves apart from the competition by certifying their ISMS to ISO 27001.
Once certified, this globally recognised standard enhances your reputation, providing instant kudos in the private sector. It also enables you to apply for public sector tenders.
With certification possible within eight weeks, you could soon be using the standard to communicate to your potential customers that their information will be held securely, that your team is well trained and that you are on top of your risks and regulatory requirements. Plus, you can reassure them that your business continuity plan strengthens their supply chain.
As for your employees, they’ll enjoy the reassurance that comes from being able to confidently identify and handle potential risks, whatever their level of IT experience.
Can ISO 27001 Protect My Business Against All Risks?
ISO 27001 ensures that you take a holistic view of the risks that can affect your business on a regular basis. It ensures that you give consideration to risks generated by people and processes as well as by systems or external factors. By doing so, it helps preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of sensitive corporate information and reduces the risk of costly security threats.
