The ISO 27001 Standard is globally recognised to help organisations manage their Information Security controls. ISO 27001 can be applied to companies of all sizes in the private sector and universities, charities, and public sector organisations. ISO 27001 provides independent assurance to your existing and potential customers and other interested parties that you have appropriate security controls in place and give you edge over your competitors.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
ISO 27001 assures clients and you as an organisation that you are in safe hands. It demonstrates that you follow the below:
Information security decisions and investments are based on risk assessment of relevant assets (including those of your customers) considering; Integrity, Availability and Confidentiality. Minimising the business impact and dealing effectively with security.
Maintains awareness of all employees so they can identify and fulfil contractual, legislative and company specific security management responsibilities.
Demonstrates secure communications and data handling credentials.
Makes visible to all of your stakeholders the good governance controls and best practice processes implemented within your organisation.
Provides a solid foundation for further development of management systems to embrace other industry standards that are likely to become important in the future
WE CAN WORK WITH YOU TO ACHIEVE ISO 27001 CERTIFICATION
We will review your organisation’s current Information Security Management processes against the requirements of the ISO 27001 Standard, and with you develop a plan and implement the necessary controls to achieve compliance with ISO 27001. If required, we will then assist you to achieve UKAS-accredited ISO 27001 certification.
COMBINING ISO 27001 WITH OTHER ISO STANDARDS
Are you considering achieving combined certifications for ISO 27001 alongside other Standards such as ISO 9001 Quality or ISO 20000 IT Service Management, for example? Have you already certification to other ISO Standards and want to integrate ISO 27001 requirements with them? We specialise in the combined approach of implementing Integrated Management Systems.
For organisations who need to achieve two or more ISO standards, there are significant advantages in implementing these standards in parallel rather than taking a phased approach, in particular the internal and external costs can be significantly reduced. There are also significant resource economies to be achieved with projects addressing multiple ISO standards e.g. one gap analysis, one implementation programme, less potential for duplication and more effective integration of your management systems. Maintenance of an integrated management system is also more efficient in terms of audits, management review, documentation, and continued assessment.
ISO 27001 CERTIFICATION – PROTECTING VITAL INFORMATION ASSETS
The confidentiality, integrity and availability of information is critical to the operation and survival of businesses. Whilst organisations believe they have a clear understanding of the risks they face, only some organisations assess those risks and fully understand them, resulting in businesses being vulnerable with incorrectly implemented technology and information security either overlooked or not focused on potential risks. We will review security threats and vulnerabilities within your organisation’s systems and the potential business impact. Remember that these are not only IT orientated but all sensitive and mission-critical information held within your business.
We can then help your organisation to implement an ISO 27001 compliant information security management system ensuring the selection of adequate and proportionate security controls and help your organisations to protect your information assets and those of your customers and partners.
UKAS-ACCREDITED ISO 27001 CERTIFICATION, WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
The requirements for working or being part of the supply chain with many Public and Private sector customers and other interested parties usually UKAS Accredited certification. In fact for public sector clients UKAS is compulsory.
