The ISO/IEC 27001 standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving an information security management system, as well as the requirements for implementing safety checks in accordance with the organization’s individual needs.
Its implementation demonstrates the organization’s concern with preserving the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information.
Information is a crucial asset for an organization’s operation and survival.
Implementing the ISO/IEC 27001 standard allows organizations to effectively manage and protect all information which is considered critical through the correct selection and implementation of safety checks, thus generating a high level of confidence among all stakeholders and interested parties, primarily customers.
The standard adopts the ISO system management model, thus allowing it to be easily integrated with other systems.
