As the volume and value of data grows, so do the risks of data theft, disclosure, and loss, which may be caused by viruses, hackers, fraudulent online behaviour, or human error.
Information security is often neglected until a data breach or complete loss happens, which may be caused by a variety of factors including unprofessional workers, computer system failures, or significant cost-cutting in the procurement of critical computer programmes. Information that is properly classified, organised, and stored improves the productivity of the company while reducing potential risks.
Why is ISO 27001 certification important?
Your organisation demonstrates a commitment to continuously improving the security of the information at its disposal by certifying and maintaining an information security management system in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 27001 standard, instilling confidence that customer data will be protected.
You will be allowed to do the following if you choose ISO 27001 certification:
Ensure that security procedures are in place to protect your company from potential cyberattacks; have trust that your company’s information security threats have been identified, analysed, and dealt with effectively.
Ensure the protection of client data, ensure compliance with corporate governance and business continuity standards, and develop possibility for new business lines by adhering to regulatory regulations and industry norms.
What exactly is ISO 27001:2013?
ISO 27001:2013 is an international standard that, if applied, will provide a firm basis for information security management by recognising existing information security threats and putting in place the necessary controls to prevent and reduce their impact in the future.
Your organization’s commitment to protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information it possesses will be shown by an ISO 27001-compliant information security management system certification.
The ISO 27001 standard may be utilised by any company, regardless of size, and is particularly valuable in industries that deal with sensitive and important customer data. This includes the telecommunications, finance, healthcare, and public-sector sectors, as well as any firms that handle data or provide services to other businesses.
ISO 27001 certification ensures compliance with procurement qualification criteria where the existence of an information security management system is a factor in tenderer selection.
