What is Information Security ISO 27001?

Domestic, national and international commerce and services are entirely dependent upon the controlled exchange and use of information. All forms of information are exposed to many risks from acts of nature and user error to internal corruption and theft.

A growing body of legislation and regulation has arisen to tackle these risks; some are aimed at ensuring the protection of individual data and some mandate corporate requirements to demonstrate that financial, operational and risk management systems are appropriately underpinned.

ISO/IEC 27001 provides a framework for establishing, operating and maintaining an Information Security Management System (ISMS) that if applied effectively, enables an organisation to apply a balanced system of information protection and controlled information exchange and use.

In addition to market differentiation and reputational enhancement, an effective ISMS targets key risk areas to mitigate possible breach of legal and regulatory requirements and minimise business impact.
