About Information Security
ISO 27001 is the de facto international standard for Information Security Management.
You simply are too careful with the responsibility to ensure the privacy of sensitive and critical information and records and the security of information systems against cyber security threats. While implementation of controls to manage Information, Security is necessary and is the case in most organizations, their effectiveness can only be assured against how well they are organized and monitored.
ISO 27001 improves the level of maturity of the processes for the protection of an organization’s critical information assets by formally specifying a management system intended to bring information security under explicit management control.
The business value of ISO/IEC 27001 stems from its emphasis on aligning the ISMS implementation to the Business strategy.
