ISO 27001 Certification
Information Security Management

Protect corporate information and data, manage threats and gain customer confidence.

The way in which you look after and use corporate information can mean the difference between success and failure for your business. Get it right and you’ll grow your customer-base. Get it wrong and the risks and penalties can stop you in your tracks.

ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that your business has systems in place to protect corporate information and data, whether this is online or offline. By gaining ISO 27001 accreditation, customer and stakeholder confidence is increased and your company’s reputation is improved, allowing you to stand out amongst competitors.

What is ISO 27001?

The ISO 27001 standard provides the framework for an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS). It sets out the policies and procedures needed to protect your organisation and includes all the risk controls (legal, physical and technical) necessary for robust IT security management.

By becoming certified companies are showing a commitment to ensuring that adequate security controls are in place to protect information and data from being accessed, corrupted, lost or stolen.

Through ISO 27001 certification, your company can demonstrate compliance with internationally recognised standards of information security.

The benefits of ISO 27001

Here are the top benefits of using the ISO 27001 framework:

  1. Compliance: An Information Security Management system demonstrates your compliance with internationally recognised standards of information security, helping you to fulfil your legal obligations and comply with regulations (e.g. SOX).

  2. Confidentiality: It keeps confidential information secure by putting in place robust security policies and access management, allowing for the secure exchange of information

  3. Risk management: The Standard manages and minimises risk exposure, providing customers and stakeholders with confidence in how you manage risk.

  4. Customer satisfaction: It enhances customer satisfaction which improves client retention.

  5. Culture of security: Businesses get buy-in from your employees and stakeholders, building a culture of security

  6. All-round-protection: It protects the company, assets, shareholders and directors.

The requirements of ISO 27001

The standard uses a structure of ten clauses called Annex SL which when grouped cover the following four areas:

  1. Management Responsibility – the areas within the ISMS that your management team need to focus on, be involved with and be accountable for

  2. Resource Management – how resources such as people, infrastructure and facilities must be assigned to ensure the best possible performance

  3. Information Security – details on how your business will operate in order to ensure that your systems and assets remain protected from unauthorised access or loss

  4. Measurement, Analysis and Improvement – how you can determine if your Information Security Management System is working as expected, facilitating the continual improvement of your system
