ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is an international information security standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) under the joint ISO and IEC subcommittee, ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27.
Information security is a concept ranging beyond the mere prevention of cyber-criminals breaking into your network systems. The way you handle your information on a daily basis is just as important as any digital barrier. The best way to do this is to have a comprehensive Information Security Management System (ISMS) in place.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is internationally recognised as a standard for the implementation of an ISMS and covers all aspects of keeping your data safe in a measurable and repeatable format.
Obtaining the ISO27001 certification is proof of the fact that your organization can manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted to you by third parties. It also shows your clients that you take information security seriously and gives them piece of mind that their data is safe.
ISO27001 / Information Security Management System (ISMS) development is part of PGI’s Information Assurance Consultancy capability.
