Information Security Management Systems Standard

ISO 27001 ISO27001: Understand and respond to the risks associated with the information you hold

 

 

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard that can be used to keep your business information secure.

It looks for the identification and classification of information, the consideration of threats, controlling access as well as how you protect confidentiality - minimising the likelihood of it being accessed illegally or without permission.

Having a system like this in place allows you to secure your data, especially important if you hold confidential or sensitive financial, commercial, personal or technical information. It will also help you to prepare and respond to business continuity threats or breaches in confidentiality.

With ISO 27001 you can demonstrate a commitment to and compliance with global best practice. It is also a way of showing your staff, customers, suppliers and stakeholders that you take the security of their information seriously and that the security of data is fundamental to the way you operate.

You will also be able to better understand and respond to the risks associated with the data and information you hold, whether hard copy or digital.

Other benefits also include:

  • Put controls in place to manage or eliminate identified risks
  • Flexibility to adapt controls to all or selected areas of your business
  • Increased stakeholder and customer trust around information security and data protection
  • The chance to demonstrate compliance and gain preferred supplier status
  • The opportunity to meet and respond to ‘PQQ’ tender requests and requirements
