What is ISO 27001?

 

27001

Are your IT systems safe?

 

Information is Valuable - protect it!

ISO 27001 is a British Standard designed to help businesses and their suppliers introduce procedures capable of safeguarding the business against threats such as employee sabotage, hacking, terrorism. Both internal and external threats are addressed, protecting data, its storage, retrieval and transmission.

 

 

Why is Information Security Needed?

 

Information is now globally accepted as being a vital asset for most organizations and businesses. As such, the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of vital corporate and customer information may be essential to maintain competitive edge, cash-flow, profitability, legal compliance and commercial image. ISO 27001 is intended to assist with this task. It is easy to imagine the consequences for an organisation if its information was lost, destroyed, corrupted, burnt, flooded, sabotaged or misused. In many cases it can (and has) led to the collapse of companies.
