Why Is ISO 27001 So Important?
ISO 27001:2013 is the only international standard that guarantees your customers’ data is well protected. In a world where cyber-attacks and malware are commonplace, and ransom demands are a growing problem, ISO 27001:2013 is the globally recognised quality benchmark awarded to companies that take privacy and information security seriously.
As such, it’s the cornerstone of what’s known as Information Security Management Systems (ISMSs) — the tools that technology companies use to keep your information and your customers’ data safe. And it’s not just about computer systems. Those businesses making the grade must ensure their people and processes are up to scratch too, including procedures to deal with any unauthorised data breaches.
