Information is critical to the efficient running of any organisation. Regardless of the size of your business, an accredited ISO/IEC 27001 management system independently verifies that your organisational risks are properly identified, assessed and managed, while formalising information security processes, procedures and documentation.
The standard is designed to ensure the selection of adequate and proportionate security controls and will provide reassurance to your Customers and Business Partners that your information assets in all formats are being responsibly managed and protected.
Benefits of ISO/IEC 27001 accreditation include the following:
- Demonstrates the independent assurance of your internal controls and meets corporate governance and business continuity requirements
- Provides a competitive edge by meeting contractual requirements and demonstrating to your customers that the security of their information is paramount
- Proves your senior management’s commitment to the security of its information
- The regular assessment process helps you to continually monitor your performance and improve
ISO/IEC 27001 is highly effective for organisations which manage information on behalf of others, such as IT outsourcing companies: it can be used to assure customers that their information is being protected.
