ISO 27001 is an information risk management standard and part of the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards. It is designed to provide guidance in the selection of adequate and proportionate controls to protect information.
The controls include identifying information security risks, proactively managing compliance with laws and regulations and providing a framework for implementing and managing controls. They also set out the objectives of information security management and define the information security policies, processes, and standards to be adopted by a business.
Organisations that meet the requirements may be certified by an accredited Certification Body (CB) following the successful completion of an audit.
ISO 27001 is becoming more relevant in the current climate as organisations seek ways to manage their information risks. Implementation is intended to provide businesses with the appropriate level of information security protection. Certification gives third parties and customers confidence that their information will be protected.
As an international standard, it is accepted worldwide (subject to certification by an accredited CB) as evidence of an organisation’s commitment to information security.
The standard sets out a series of controls that need to be in place to meet the certification requirements. Implementing these controls ensures the adoption of best practices and saves time with a ready-made approach.
