The full name of ISO 27001 is “ISO/IEC 27001 -Information technology-Security techniques- Information security management systems-Requirements.”
ISO 27001 helps organizations manage their information security by addressing people, processes, and technology.
While you are not required to adopt the best practices laid out in ISO 27001, some do need ISO 27001. Those that need it most of all are managers responsible for information security at organizations that have either undeveloped or non-existent information security. ISO 27001 compliance helps you demonstrate good security practices, which can improve relationships with clients and give you a competitive advantage.
We perform a Statement of Applicability so we understand all the controls your business has or has not implemented. ISO 27001 Annex A has 114 controls within 14 sections. We will then create the set of policies, procedures, plans, records, and other documented information that are needed to become compliant. This will prepare you for your external audit. Certification to ISO 27001 requires regular reviews and internal audits of the ISMS to ensure continual improvement.
ISO 27001 helps organizations avoid potentially costly security breaches. ISO 27001-certified organizations can show customers, partners and shareholders that they have taken steps to protect data in the event of a breach.
