ISO 27001 the International Standard for Information Security
the standard by which information security should be set.
Information Security Management doesn’t have to be complex if you approach it in a structured way and the international standard for Information Security, ISO 27001, allows you to do just that.
Importantly, the standard doesn’t just focus on your IT infrastructure, it takes into account all areas of the business from people to premises. It provides a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving your information security management system in a structured way.
So what does the standard cover?
The standard covers
- The Information Security Management System
- Security Policies
- Access Control
- Operations Security
- Human Resources
- Organisation of Information Security
- Communications Security
- Asset Management
- Physical & Environment Security
- Supplier Relationships
- Security Incident Management
- System Acquisition, development and maintenance
- Business Continuity Management
