One of the hot questions these days is related to clause 4.2 in ISO 27001 – Understanding the needs and expectations of interested parties. Actually, their identification is not so complicated, and it gives crucial input for developing your information security management system (ISMS).
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.
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.
