ISO 27001 Advisory and Certification
ISO 27001 is an internationally-recognised information security standard. ISO 27001 provides an Information Security Management System (ISMS) to help organisations identify, assess, manage, and mitigate the risks of handling corporate information.
Achieving ISO 27001 certification demonstrates to your customers and commercial partners that you’re committed to the highest standards in information security. This enhances your organisation’s credibility and competitive edge.
ISO 27001 provides a framework for developing and implementing Information Security Management Systems, and organisations like Global-Mark are able to certify compliance with these standards.
Main Advantages of ISO 27001
Protect Your Data Anywhere
An ISO 27001 compliant ISMS helps protect all forms of information, whether digital, paper-based, or in the cloud.
Defend Against Cyber Attacks
Implementing and maintaining an ISMS will significantly reduce your organisation’s cyber security and data breach risks.
Respond To Evolving Security Threats
ISO 27001 compliant organisations are more capable of responding to evolving information security risks due to the risk management requirements of the Standard.
Establish an Information Security Culture
With ISO 27001 embedded in an organisation’s culture, employees are more aware of information security risks, and security measures are wide-reaching across all areas of the organisation.
Meet Contractual Obligations
Certification demonstrates your organisation’s commitment to information security and provides evidence that you have formally committed to complying with information security measures.
How does ISO 27001 benefit your organisation?
ISO 27001 assures your organisation, board members, staff, and customers that reliable systems and accountabilities are in place. These standards focus on managing security using a systems approach, entirely independent of technology. Compliance with ISO 27001 helps your organisation with the following:
• Security policy
• Security organisation
• Security of third party access
• Asset classification and control
• Personnel security
Physical and environmental security
Communication and operations management
Systems development and maintenance
Business continuity management
Compliance (legal, review of policies and technical compliance, system audit)
Designed for organisations beginning their compliance journey, Scope Definition helps stakeholders and project managers to understand what systems and processes they should include within the scope of the ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS).
A Gap Analysis helps organisations that require a detailed understanding of where they are in terms of their Information Security Management System (ISMS). It also provides them with a roadmap to certification.
As an ISO 27001 requirement, an internal audit helps organisations that have an operating ISMS and are either planning to certify or have previously certified. An audit may cover some or all of the clauses and controls in scope.
