Organizations face many challenges in today’s “online” world. The increase in security incidents (resulting from online hackers, disgruntled employees, and the simple and accidental mishandling of information) can – very quickly – damage a company’s reputation, productivity, and financial stability.
ISO/IEC 27001 aims to ensure that adequate controls addressing confidentiality, integrity and availability of information are in place to safeguard the information of interested parties. These include customers, employees, trading partners and the needs of society in general.
Unprotected systems are vulnerable to all kinds of threats, such as computer-assisted fraud, sabotage, and viruses. These threats can be internal or external, and both accidental or malicious. Breaches in information security can allow vital information to be accessed, stolen, corrupted, or lost. How confident are you that your company has the appropriate controls and procedures in place to avoid such incidents?
An information security management system compliant to ISO/IEC 27001 can help you demonstrate to trading partners and customers alike that you take information security seriously.
