What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is a globally recognised standard for implementing an Information Security Management Service (ISMS). The standard helps organisations keep financial information, intellectual property, and employee details secure by analysing and addressing information risks.

We can help you to become ISO 27001 Certified or Compliant

The ISMS contains a set of policies, procedures, technical and physical controls to protect the confidentiality, availability and integrity of information. It helps manage, and keep secure, information held by an organisation.

Implementing ISO 27001 improves organisational culture with regards to information security. It ensures future organisational and environmental changes do not introduce excess risk to the organisation.

Certified or Compliant?

Whether your organisation is looking to become certified or compliant will depend on the driving factor: usually this is a customer requirement.

The difference between Compliant and Certified is relatively simple. A compliant organisation has implemented an ISO 27001 ISMS in their organisation and has opted to self-certify this compliance.

A certified organisation has had their ISMS audited by an ISO 27001 certification auditor who validates its compliance with the standard.

What does it cost?

Costs of implementing ISO 27001 vary for each organisation depending on the scope of the project.

We recommend you contact us for a discussion about the likely cost to your organisation.
