INFORMATION SECURITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (ISMS ISO/IEC 27001:2005)

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.

An ISO 27001 information security management system is a systematic and pro-active approach to effectively managing risks to the security of your company’s confidential information. The system promotes efficient management of sensitive corporate information, highlighting vulnerabilities to ensure it is adequately protected against potential threats. It encompasses people, process and IT systems.

Like other ISO management system standards, certification to ISO/IEC 27001 is possible but not obligatory. Some organizations choose to implement the standard in order to benefit from the best practice it contains while others decide they also want to get certified to reassure customers and clients that its recommendations have been followed. ISO does not perform certification.

Information is an asset which, like other important business assets, has a value to an organization and consequently needs to be suitably protected. This standard helps organization to coordinate all security efforts both electronically and physically, coherently, cost effectively and with consistency and prove to potential customers that you take the security of their personal / business information seriously. The main benefits include:

  • Cost reductions due to avoiding incidents
  • Smoother running operations as responsibilities and processes are clearly defined
  • Improved business image in the marketplace – customers have peace of mind that the company is trustworthy
  • Working with a trustworthy provider maintains the company’s own integrity to the safeguarding of its data
  • Installs confidence further down the supply chain resulting in stronger customers / supplier relationships
ISO/IEC 27001:2005 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented Information Security Management System within the context of the organization's overall business risks. It specifies requirements for the implementation of security controls customized to the needs of individual organizations or parts thereof.ISO/IEC 27001:2005 is designed to ensure the selection of adequate and proportionate security controls that protect information assets and give confidence to interested parties.ISO/IEC 27001:2005 is intended to be suitable for several different types of use, including the following:
