ISO 27001, the international information security 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 provides an independent, expert verification that information security is managed in line with international best practice and business objectives. 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 organisation’s information security. It helps you manage all your security practices in one place, consistently and cost-effectively.
At the heart of an ISO 27001-compliant ISMS is business-driven risk assessments, which means you will be able to identify and treat security threats according to your organisation’s risk appetite and tolerance.
