ISO 27001 Information Security Management System
IF YOU AREN’T MANAGING RISKS, YOU SHOULD BE The issue of information security sees organisations of all sizes and from all sectors, with an identical problem – their inherent vulnerability.
No matter how secure and well protected an organisation appears to be, sensitive information can be leaked without you even realizing until it’s too late. All information in all departments, whether on computer disk, paper or in the heads of those you employ, is at risk from any number of very real threats. Information security is no longer just an issue for IT managers – a single breach of information security could cost your company hard earned profits whilst doing irreparable damage to your image and reputation. Your capacity to trade profitably depends on your ability to manage this risk effectively.
As the number of reported information security breaches consistently increases, the need to create a management framework for information security intensifies. An Information Security Management System (ISMS) – ISO 27001:2013. Once you start using ISO 27001 as a basis for your ISMS, your management system can be audited and registered by a third party. This process adds significant value to the ongoing effectiveness of the system.
