INFORMATION SECURITY SYSTEMS | ISO 27001
MAKING SURE YOUR BUSINESS PROTECTS ITS SECURE INFORMATION.
Protecting secure information both of your business and your customers helps make your business safer. It can demonstrate to both potential suppliers and customers that you care about the security of their information and help you gain business. ISO 27001 is the international standard that provides the requirement for a best-practice information security management system (ISMS). It is one of the most popular information security standards in the world, with certifications growing globally by more than 450% in the past ten years. The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, together with the new Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) form part of the data protection laws in the UK. The changes introduced by this new regime, mean that most organisations will need to review the processing of personal data and the associated controls
The structure of ISO 27001 is continually updating to help improve sector-specific problems. Recently the ISO standard has seen updates to help industry specific problems. With the continual development of online and cloud-based businesses, sensitive and valuable information is being passed from B2B and business to the customer on a regular basis. This has seen the development of ISO 27011, ISO 27017 and ISO 27019 which are designed for Telecomms, cloud computing and the energy sector. Certification to ISO 27001 involves undertaking regular reviews and audits of the ISMS to ensure its continual improvement. An will review the ISMS at specific intervals to establish whether the controls are working as intended. This independent assessment provides an expert opinion of whether the ISMS is functioning properly and provides the level of security needed to protect the organisation’s information.
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard for an Information Security Management System which can be independently certified. ISO 27001 has been implemented by thousands of organisations and is rapidly gaining popularity as more breaches are reported. The standard provides an organisation with assurance, knowing that their processes and controls are secure. It also helps to develop and enhance best practice.
