ISO 27001

ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management (ISMS)

Everyone is now aware of the scale and threat posed by cyber-attacks and the heavy fines that are associated with data breaches. Protecting personal information and commercially sensitive information is critical. Gaining an ISO/IEC 27001 accreditation will help your organisation to implement a robust approach to managing information security (infosec) and be a selling point to show your clients that you take InfoSec seriously.

About ISO/IEC 27001

Internationally recognized ISO/IEC 27001 is an excellent framework which helps organisations to continuously manage and protect their information assets and places InfoSec at the heart of your organisation. It helps you to continually review and refine the way you do this, not only for today, but also for the future. The information security standard spans all industries, highlighting best practices for improving the security of information and minimising risks.

Gaining ISO 27001 certification helps to minimise business risk, while simultaneously demonstrating your organisation’s commitment to protecting its information assets. This is especially important at a time when security breaches pose a substantial legal, financial, and reputational risk for all industry sectors.

How PrivacyAid can help

Understanding and applying the requirements of ISO 27001 to your business can be a steep learning curve if you are not familiar with the Standard.  Our experienced consultants will typically start with a ‘gap analysis’ to uncover areas that need further work. There is no ‘one-size fits’ all approach, every organisation is different and will have a different level of information security maturity.

PrivacyAid’s consultants can help your organisation at every step of the certification process, including project initiation, gap analysis, implementation, internal audit, and maintenance of your standard once you have achieved it.

Your organisation may wish to outsource the entire certification process or may only need help in some specific areas.
