ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management

Overview of ISO 27001

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is the International Standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). Implementing an ISMS and gaining ISO 27001 certification will ensure you have the processes and controls to protect your information assets, customer information and manage the threats posed to your organization from cyber-attacks.

ISO 27001 is suitable for any organization, large or small, in any sector or part of the world where managing sensitive company information and keeping it secure from outsiders is important. The standard is particularly suitable where the protection of information is critical, such as in the finance, health, public and IT sectors.

The standard follows Annex SL, the High-Level Structure used by all new and revised standards and is compatible with other management systems including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. This allows easy integration of multiple standards and reduces duplication of effort and cost.
