What ISO/IEC 27001certification means?
ISO 27001 (formally known as ISO/IEC 27001) is an excellent framework which helps organizations to manage and protect their information assets, so that way, they can remain safe and secure. It helps companies to coordinate all their security efforts, both electronically and physically, not only for today, but also for the future. That’s how ISO/IEC 27001 protects business, their reputation and adds value.
This standard also can prove to potential customers that the company takes seriously the security of their personal or business information. It ensures that you have a consistent and cost-effective approach to information management.
The ISO/IEC 27001 specifications define a six-part planning process:
- Define a security policy.
- Define the scope of the ISMS.
- Conduct a risk assessment.
- Manage identified risks.
- Select control objectives and controls to be implemented.
- Prepare a statement of applicability.
The specification includes details for documentation, management responsibility, internal audits, continual improvement, and corrective and preventive action. The standard requires cooperation among all sections of an organization.
There are many ways to achieve security risks management, so a good standard like ISO/IEC 27001 puts formalities in place to ensure that the right thought process was followed and captured when the inevitable breach is realized. Like other ISO management system standards, certification to ISO/IEC 27001 is possible but not obligatory. Some organizations choose to implement the standard in order to benefit from the best practice it contains while others decide they also want to get certified to reassure customers and clients that its recommendations have been followed.
Benefits of ISO/IEC 27001
Implementing an information security management system will provide organizations with a system that will help to eliminate or minimize the risk of a security breach that could have legal or business continuity implications.
An effective ISO/IEC 27001 information security management system (ISMS) provides a management framework of policies and procedures that will keep your information secure whatever the format is.
Some benefits of ISO/IEC 27001 are:
- Increased reliability and security of systems and information.
- Improved customer and business partner confidence.
- Increased business resilience.
- Alignment with customer requirements.
- Improved management processes and integration with corporate risk strategies.
Achieving ISO/IEC 27001 is not a guarantee that information breaches will never occur, but by having a robust system in place, risks will be reduced and disruption and costs kept to a minimum.
