Safeguarding your data, systems and intellectual property.
As more and more organisations move to digitally driven services, customers – whether business users or consumers –are demanding the highest information security standards to ensure their details are kept safe.
It seems a month doesn’t go by without a story appearing in the media involving a business that has had its IT systems breached or customer data stolen. Modern organisations therefore need to prove that the companies they buy products and services from have thoroughly considered risk and put in place systems that will help them guard against security being compromised.
Meanwhile, those same firms want to ensure their intellectual property isn’t available for all and sundry –the likes of hackers, for example – to copy or steal. Mitigating the risk of a deliberate digital attack is now a business-critical safeguard.
For these reasons, ISO 27001 was developed with IT and information security in mind. It is a group of standards that collectively offer a specification for an Information Security Management System (ISMS for short).
It is highly recommended for any organisation that uses multiple computers to process transactional and other regular operations, as well as firms that hold large quantities of sensitive data such as customers’ or employees’ personal information.
