ISO 27001 certification

ISO 27001:2013 is the international standard for information security management. The standard outlines the requirements for an information security management system or ISMS. An effective ISO 27001 system enables your organization to secure information such as financial data, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted to you by third parties. Well designed ISO 27001 systems  reduce the likelihood of illegal or inappropriate access and information loss.

In applying ISO 27001, your organization can demonstrate the identification of risks associated with the loss of confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. It can also demonstrate conformity to information governance, best practice and regulatory requirements such as the GDPR, in place from May 2018. This proves to those with interest that information security is integral to your overall business process.

With cybercrime and computer hacking a daily hazard. Recent high-profile cases have proven financially damaging to organizations directly impacting customer/client confidence and reputations. As our ability to capture and store information across various devices increases, the importance of securing our information becomes more critical.

Loss or corruption of data can be caused by poor practices, theft, mismanagement or natural disasters. Rectifying the loss, theft or corruption of information can be expensive and in some cases, where the information is critical to the survival of the business, can lead to its final demise.

An effective ISO 27001 system provides confidence to your stakeholders that you are applying effective controls to protect information assets.
