With our increasing reliance on data and electronic systems in an intern connected world, there is a need to ensure that our data, our intellectual property and that of our customers, employees and other stakeholders is protected. This is the role for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The internationally agreed standard for an ISMS is ISO 27001.
Devised by leading technologists, the current version was launched in 2013. It is an ideal response to ensuring that you are compliant with your legal obligations under GDPR and have taken measures to reduce your vulnerability to theft, cyber-attack and data misuse.
Over a third of businesses in the UK, have experienced some form of cyber attack in the last 12 months. For those without adequate measures in place, it can be crippling in terms of expense to rectify, potential to become uninsurable and reputational damage.
Achieving ISO 27001 certification will ensure you have a management system in place to protect your information assets and give confidence to customer and service users that you can be trusted with theirs.
