ISO 27001 webinar series
ISO 27001 is the international standard that describes best practice for an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is a set of policies, procedures, processes and systems that manage information risks such as cyber attacks, hacks, data leaks and theft.
Implementing an ISO 27001-certified ISMS can help your organisation avoid the penalties and losses associated with data breaches, and comply with legal and regulatory requirements such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
This series of expertly designed webinars will guide organisations through the ISO 27001 certification process from beginning to end.
