Implementing an information security management system will provide a system that will help to eliminate or minimize the risk of a security breach. If a hacker gets into your network, you can expect legal or business continuity problems.

An ISO 27001 information security management system (ISMS) provides a framework of policies and procedures to keep your information secure.

It has proven to be very damaging to an organization if information gets into the wrong hands or into the public domain. By building then maintaining a documented system of controls, risks can be identified, mitigated and reduced.

Being awarded an ISO 27001 certification proves:
• Your proprietary information is secured
• Access to information can only be modified by authorized users
• Risks are mitigated and the impact of a breach is minimized
• You are using an independently assessed international standard
Benefits include:
• Increased reliability and security of information and infrastructure
• Improved customer confidence
• Improved management processes and integration with corporate risk strategies
Getting ISO 27001 certified is not a guarantee that you won’t get hacked but by having a robust system in place, risks will be reduced and disruption and costs are minimized.
