What is ISO 27001-Information security management systems (ISMS) standard?

Numerous high-profile incidents, involving both malicious attacks and simple accidental data loss, serve to illustrate the importance of good IT security; and ISO 27001 – Information Technology – Security Techniques – Information Security Management Systems – Requirements (2013)  has proven extremely popular.

An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. It includes people, processes and IT systems by applying a risk management process. It can help small, medium and large businesses in any sector keep information assets secure.

There are many reasons why organisations might consider ISO 27001. Organisations are under increasing pressure to demonstrate effective Information Assurance, from regulators, employees, customers, legislative & enforcement bodies, business partners and prospective customers (in the form of tender requirements). Increasingly, the business that cannot easily demonstrate effective IA is the business that will be excluded from tenders, attract the interest of the regulator and, in general, find itself under increased and increasing scrutiny.
