ISO 27001 - Information Security Management Systems

What is ISO 27001?

The ISO 27001:2013 (also known as BS EN 27001:2017) standard provides a framework for an Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) that enables the continued confidentiality, integrity and availability of information as well as legal compliance. ISO 27001 certification is essential for protecting your most vital assets.

ISO 27001 implementation is an ideal response to customer and legal requirements such as the GDPR and potential security threats including:

  • Cyber crime
  • Personal data breaches
  • Vandalism / terrorism
  • Fire / damage
  • Misuse
  • Theft
  • Viral attack

The ISO 27001 standard is also structured to be compatible with other management systems standards, such as ISO 9001 and it is technology and vendor neutral, which means it is completely independent of any IT platform. As such, all members of the company should be educated on what the standard means and how it applies throughout the organisation.

Is ISO 27001 certification right for me?

ISO 27001 certification is right for you and your organisation if you need the evidence or assurance that your most important asset is protected from misuse, corruption, or loss.

Many organisations from the private, public and voluntary sectors are increasingly concerned about protecting their, and their customers, information and data. Cyber attacks and information security breaches happen at almost alarming regular rates. The financial penalties for your information security being compromised can be devastatingly punitive.

Some sectors have particular cyber threats - e.g. If you are a supplier to the Aviation, Defence, Space or Security networks, then increasingly ISO 27001 is being seen as the primary and most effective response to the cyber and data attack issues that seem to be growing on an almost monthly basis. If you are an SC21 Gold, Silver or Bronze recognised company, and operate to one of the AS9100/AS9110/AS9120 aerospace standards, then adding the ISO 27001 will add demonstrable value for your customers. 

Public and many Voluntary Sector organisations are becoming more aware of the real threat of cyber attacks and information security compromise; This is a proven effective response.
