ISO 27001 is the international standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). The objective of the standard itself is to “provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an Information Security Management System”. ISO 27001 Management System will help any organisation protect its data and information from a wide range of threats to ensure business continuity, minimising business damage and maximising return on investments and future business opportunities.
ISMS standard addresses this very concern and covers the preservation of confidentiality and ensuring the integrity and availability of information. It will help to address the all-too common and often devastating business impacts such as glitches due to viruses, loss of information, improper disclosure and inability to retrieve information.
