What is ISO 27001

The ISO or International Organization for Standardization is a global body that is involved in collecting and managing a broad range of standards for different disciplines.

The objective of ISO 27001 is to not only to align to the security standard but to establish a discipline of IT operations by providing a benchmark for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving information security management systems. So if your business is looking to take its information security to the next level, achieving ISO 27001 compliance and certification should be made an immediate priority. 

What are the benefits of ISO 27001 Implementation?

The standard makes sure that someone in your organisation is well equipped to handle a threat if it cannot be prevented.

  • Increases the awareness of information security : Choosing to implement the ISO 27001 in your organisation increases the overall awareness of information security amongst your employees.
