Safeguard Information. Protect Your Company’s Reputation. Manage Risk.
No doubt your company has worked tirelessly and spent a lot of money to establish and protect your brand. Yet loss, fraud, misuse or abuse of information leaves a check against your business that may take a long time to recover from, if ever. It’s important to remember that any business holding data on individuals or companies is a target for fraud, theft, misuse or abuse. It is not restricted to large companies or those in the financial industry.
Most companies have a number of information security controls, but without an Information Security Management System, controls can be disorganized and disjointed. It might also leave non-IT information assets such as paperwork and proprietary knowledge less protected.
ISO 27001 specifies a management system intended to bring security under explicit management control. It mandates specific requirements that include:
- Management-directed security policy
- Organization of information security
- Asset management
- Human resources security for employees joining, moving and leaving an organization
- Physical and environmental security to protect the computer facilities
- Management of technical security controls in systems and networks
- Control access to restrict rights to networks, systems, applications, functions and data
- Building security into information systems acquisition, development and maintenance
- Information security incident management to anticipate and respond to information security breaches
- Protect, maintain and recover business-critical processes and systems
- Compliance to information security policies, standards, laws and regulations
