ISO 27001 Information security management system
As the amount of information grows and the importance of its processing increases, all organizations are increasingly exposed to risks of data theft, disclosure, and loss, which can be caused by viruses, hackers, fraudulent online activities, or human error.
Information security is often only addressed when we encounter information leaks or even its complete loss, which can result from, for example, unprofessional staff, a failure in a computer system, or excessive savings in purchasing appropriate computer programs. Classifying, organizing, and correctly storing information makes the organization’s work more efficient and reduces potential risks.
What is ISO 27001:2013?
ISO 27001:2013 is an international standard, whose implementation will provide a stable framework for information security management by identifying existing information security risks and by providing the necessary measures to prevent them and to reduce their impact in the future.
An information security management system certification in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 27001 standard will demonstrate your organization’s commitment to ensuring the security of the information held by the organization, characterized by its confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
The ISO 27001 standard can be applied to any organization, regardless of its size, and is particularly important in industries that process sensitive and critical customer data. These include the telecommunication, financial, healthcare, and public services sectors, as well as any organizations that process data for or provide services to other companies.
ISO 27001 certification will ensure compliance with procurement qualification requirements in cases where the existence of an information security management system is a criterion for the selection of tenderers.
