ISO 27001 Assessment
How do you achieve ISO 27001 certification?
The ISO 27001 standard was created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to provide a methodology for the implementation, management, and maintenance of information security within a company.
ISO 27001 certification demonstrates conformity of your Information Security Management System (ISMS) with the documented standards and provides your customers with validated declarations regarding the security of your system. It shows that you have identified the risks, assessed the potential impacts, and deployed documented and measurable controls to mitigate those risks.
In real business terms, ISO 27001 compliance can:
- Prevent sensitive information being accessed by unauthorized and/or malicious parties.
- Guarantee the accuracy of protected information.
- Ensure that protected information can only be modified by authorized users.
- Help you to predict the potential impact of an information breach and mitigate the risk.
Customers, stakeholders and beyond: the wide-reaching benefits of ISO 27001 compliance.
In order to receive ISO 27001 certification, you must show that you’ve identified vulnerabilities and implemented a system to control information storage and use. You must also prove that you’ve provided adequate instruction to staff and contractors, covering topics like risk management and incident reporting, and put processes in place to monitor and control their system activity. Finally, you need to demonstrate that your IT system protections are up to date.
