ISO/IEC 27001

Information Security Management
As we place increased reliance on information technology, information security is paramount to the successful operation of all organisations. With rapid technological advancements, an organisation’s information system is also more vulnerable to attack.
 
Certification Standard
 
ISO/IEC 27001 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organization. It also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization. The requirements set out in ISO/IEC 27001 are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size or nature.
 
System Requirements
 
The focus of ISO/IEC 27001 is information security risks management. An organisation has to assess its information security risk levels and apply controls to mitigate these risks. The "Requirements" are mandatory requirements with no exclusion allowed. The "controls" in Annex A can be excluded, provided that such exclusions will not affect the organisation’s responsibility and ability to meet its obligatory information security requirements.

 Benefits of Certification
