ISO 27001, the international information security standard


We at IT Governance are global experts in ISO 27001. Our team led the world’s first successful certification to the Standard.


What is ISO 27001?

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001) is the international standard that describes best practice for an ISMS (information security management system). Achieving accredited certification to ISO 27001 demonstrates that your company is following information security best practice, and delivers an independent, expert assessment of whether your data is adequately protected. ISO 27001 is supported by its code of practice for information security management, ISO/IEC 27002:2013.

What is an ISMS?

An ISMS is a system of processes, documents, technology and people that helps to manage, monitor, audit and improve your organization’s information security. It helps you manage all your security practices in one place, consistently and cost-effectively.

An ISO 27001-compliant ISMS relies on regular risk assessments, so you will be able to identify and treat security threats according to your organization’s risk appetite and tolerance.
