Organizations increasingly have to demonstrate they can be trusted for information security and privacy management and having ISO 27001 demonstrates that an organization has identified risks and put in place preventative measures to protect the organization from information security breaches.
The ISO 27001 standard outlines requirements for organizations to establish, implement, maintain, and improve an Information Security Management System within the context of the organization. Requirements mentioned in ISO 27001 are generic and intended to be applicable to all organizations.
An effective Information Security Management System (ISMS) provides a management framework of policies and procedures that will keep your information secure, whatever the format. ISO 27001 outlines the requirements for assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization.
