What is ISO/IEC 27001?
ISO/IEC 27001 is the leading international standard for information security management. It covers commercial, governmental and not-for-profit organisations, and specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, monitoring and improving an information security management system (ISMS).
Why is ISO/IEC 27001 important?
Your organisation may not consider its information to be vulnerable or targeted for attack but in the borderless Internet-connected world, disruptions to business IT processes can cripple your operations and allow your competitors to gain market share. ISO/IEC 27001 offers a systematic and well-structured approach that will protect the confidentiality of your information, ensure the integrity of business data and improve the availability of your business IT systems.
How can you prepare for ISO/IEC 27001?
Like many other management systems, ISO/IEC 27001 is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act approach to quality improvement. You can prepare for the standard by undergoing training to learn more about it. TÜV SÜD offers a foundation course that provides an overview of the standard’s requirements. You will also learn what your organisation needs to do in order to ensure its continued compliance to the standard after initial certification.
