WHAT IS ISO/IEC 27001?
ISO/IEC 27001 is an information security standard, a part of the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards. It brings information security under management control. It is a security standard that specifies the requirements for building, monitoring and improving an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is a set of policies for protecting and managing a company’s sensitive information, e.g., financial data, customer details, intellectual property, and employee records.
Organizations that meet the requirements and successfully complete an audit get certified. Most organizations have information security controls. With an information security management system (ISMS), controls are implemented often as point solutions or simply as a matter of convention.
ISO/IEC 27001 REQUIRES THE FOLLOWING MANAGEMENT:
• In order to obtain the certification, systematical examinations are being performed by an accredited certification body, to explore if the organization has information security risks and if it is taking account of the threats and vulnerabilities;
• The certification demands a comprehensive suite of information security controls to be implemented as well as other forms of risk avoidance.
• The certification also requires the adoption of a broad management process thus the information security controls continue to meet the organization’s information security needs continuously. ISO/IEC 27001 is projected to cover more than IT.
