ISO 27001:2013 - Information Security Management System
ISO 27001 helps organizations to implement information security management systems (ISMS) to deal with increasingly competitive markets and the security requirements of customers, both implicit and explicit.
Certification to ISO 27001 adds value to the measures taken to protect the assets of your customers, as well as your own.
Certification of an organization w.r.t. ISO 27001 demonstrates its capacity to regularly identify the assets within its environment, define suitable protection measures and manage a coherent and effective information security system. Complemented by ISO 17799:2005 “Code of practice for information security management” and the July 2002 OECD guidelines, the ISO 27001 standard provides a framework for setting up, maintaining and improving a management system.
Built with the Approach Process and PDCA Model, it acts as a tool for all sectors and companies, subjected to strong competition and specific customer requirements.
