Why we love to talk about ISO27001
Implementing security can seem like a daunting task, and that’s why we focus on internationally recognised security standard, like ISO27001, ISO27701, NIST, CIS, Cyber Essentials and more.
However, we focus heavily on ISO27001 because we believe it is the most rounded security standard in existence. Some of the benefits of ISO27001 include;
It is a risk based security management system
It is internationally recognised by government, public and private sector
It is focused on Operational, People, Physical and Technical security
It is assessed externally by independent certification bodies
It can be applied to any size of organisation
It can be applied to any industry
It is adaptable
If you’re looking to build a successful business then having ISO27001 in place means that you can demonstrate to your clients and customers that you take their security seriously. What else can this standard for your business?
ISO27001 can increase the value of your business
ISO27001 can demonstrate legal compliance with EU GDPR and UK DPA 2018
ISO27001 can differentiate yourself from your competitors
ISO27001 can manage the risk of suffering from a data breach
ISO27001 can manage the risk of becoming a victim of cybercrime (including fraud)
ISO27001 can be the basis upon which you achieve other standards (like ISO27701)
Benefits of combining ISO and Consultants Like Us
We have worked with this standard since 1995, when it was a British Standard (BS7799-1) and have watched it develop into one of the most robust security frameworks in the world. We are intensely proud of our experience and expertise in helping organisations achieve certification to the standard, and we have developed our skills and expertise in line with the standard.
We know what good looks like, what ‘best practice’ is, and what ‘Excellence’ is. Using ISO27001 as a framework we can take you from the start of your ISO journey through to the implementation of a security culture where it simply becomes part of your business.
