What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is the international standard that provides a framework for Information Security Management Systems. It gives organisations a platform to manage and standardise the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information.
International Standards ofAssurance
Many organisations throughout the world have their own information security controls in place. This makes it difficult to deal with vendors, customers and providers both local and global as there is no quality assurance and standardised platform to work with. Moreover, business continuity planning and physical security may be managed quite independently of IT or information security while Human Resources practices may make little reference to the need to define and assign information security roles and responsibilities throughout the organisation. ISO 27001 brings haphazard controls of different companies together under a standardised umbrella that is recogised locally and globally.
