IT Governance, the leading provider of cyber security and ISO 27001 expertise, is urging organisations to take advantage of the longest uninterrupted period of the year to implement ISO 27001
project. An ISO 27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS) can be deployed to avoid the unrecoverable financial and reputational damage associated with cyber attacks and data breaches.
The statement comes in response to a recent report showing that the overall costs of cyber security incidents and data breaches are reported to be much higher than the financial impact of burglary over the same period of time.
Alan Calder, founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, said: “These findings are a concern for organisations around the world. This is a convincing argument that the traditional criminal is now evolving into a cyber criminal that has a higher financial and reputational impact on organisations. Our response to cyber crime is ISO 27001 in combination with other controls, such as the PCI DSS, and penetration testing and a risk-based approach to information security. Such a combined approach ensures all security efforts are coordinated.”
, the international information security management standard, provides a comprehensive, company-wide framework for managing cyber security risks and protecting an organisation’s information assets.
“Cyber criminals are encouraged more than ever by the financial rewards associated with cyber attacks. Organisations are encouraged to take advantage of this uninterrupted period of the year and use qualified expertise, resources and tools in a cost- and time-effective manner to avoid the unrecoverable financial and reputational damage associated with cyber attacks and data breaches,” Alan Calder continued.
IT Governance’s ISO 27001 implementation products and services are accessible and affordable for organisations anywhere in the world, and include unique ‘all-in’ ISO 27001 Packaged Solutions
