Achieving and maintaining accredited certification to ISO 27001 can be complicated, especially if you are new to the Standard.
What is ISO 27001 and how can it benefit your organization?
ISO 27001 is the international standard that describes best practice for an information security management system (ISMS). Achieving accredited certification to the Standard demonstrates that your organization is following information security best practice and your data is sufficiently protected.
By certifying to ISO 27001, organizations can:
- Avoid the penalties and financial losses associated with data breaches
- Win new business and retain their existing customers
- Protect and enhance their reputation
- Improve their processes
- Comply with legal, contractual, and regulatory requirements, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
