An information security policy is the cornerstone of an information security program. It should reflect the organization’s objectives for security and the agreed upon management strategy for securing information.
What is ISO 27001 ? Information security systems are often regarded by organizations as simple checklists or policies and procedures that deny them a lot of things, far from the way they do their normal business. By sticking to these beliefs, organizations prevent themselves from properly building an ISMS (Information Security Management System) and achieving its full potential, either in operational and financial performance, or marketing reputation.
Information Security Management Standard (ISMS) – is all about safeguarding yours and your customers’ information. All businesses, charities, organisations and public sector bodies need to know what ISO 27001’s all about, what the implications are and what can be done to achieve certification to the standard.
Benefits of ISO/IEC 27001 87% of all survey respondents stated that implementing ISO/IEC 27001 for business management had a positive or very positive outcome.
An Information Security Management System describes and demonstrates your organisation’s approach to Information Security. It includes how people, policies, controls and systems identify, then address the opportunities and threats revolving around valuable information and related assets. Cyber security is all about addressing technology led threats. Effective cyber security solutions are part of the broader ISMS.
