Protect business information assets with ISO 27001
Most organisations now rely on information systems to support all of their critical business processes. This dependency has led to an evolving risk from electronic security threats such as hacking, data loss, breach of confidentiality and even terrorism. These increasingly sophisticated attacks can come from individuals, private organisations or even clandestine foreign intelligence agencies. When these attacks result in loss of information, theft of confidential data or damage to critical systems and documents, organisations can suffer severe consequences including financial repercussions and reputational risk.
What is ISO/IEC 27001?
ISO/IEC 27001 is the leading international standard for information security management. It covers commercial, governmental and not-for-profit organisations, and specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, monitoring and improving an information security management system (ISMS).
Why is ISO/IEC 27001 important?
Your organisation may not consider its information to be vulnerable or targeted for attack but in the borderless Internet-connected world, disruptions to business IT processes can cripple your operations and allow your competitors to gain market share. ISO/IEC 27001 offers a systematic and well-structured approach that will protect the confidentiality of your information, ensure the integrity of business data and improve the availability of your business IT systems.
