ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management System Certificate
What exactly is ISO 27001? ISO 27001:2013 is an international standard that establishes a framework for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) to ensure information confidentiality, integrity, and availability while also adhering to legal requirements. ISO 27001 accreditation is necessary for safeguarding your most valuable assets, such as employee and client data, brand image, and other confidential information. The ISO standard specifies a process-based method to establishing, implementing, operating, and maintaining an ISMS.
Customer and legal requirements such as the GDPR, as well as potential security concerns such as cyber-crime, personal data breaches, vandalism / terrorism, fire / damage, misuse, theft, and viral attacks, can all be addressed with ISO 27001 implementation.
Obtaining approved ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that your firm is committed to implementing information security best practises. Furthermore, ISO 27001 accreditation provides you with an expert assessment of whether your company’s data is sufficiently protected.
REQUIREMENTS IN GENERAL
The requirements outlined in this International Standard are generic in nature and are designed to apply to all types, sizes, and types of organisations.
Any exclusion of controls deemed to be essential to meet the risk acceptance requirements must be justified, and evidence that the related risks have been accepted by accountable parties must be provided.
Claims of conformity to this International Standard are not acceptable if any controls are excluded, unless the exclusions do not affect the organization’s ability, and/or responsibility, to provide information security that meets the security requirements determined by risk assessment and applicable regulatory requirements.
If an organisation already has a working business process management system (e.g., in accordance with ISO 9001 or ISO 14001), it is usually preferable to meet the standards of this International Standard within that system.
