What is the ISO 27001 Certification?
The ISO 27001 Certification is the leading international standard for information security management. It covers commercial, governmental and not-for-profit organizations, and specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, monitoring and improving an information security management system (ISMS).
Why is the ISO 27001 Certification important?
Your organization may not consider its information to be vulnerable or targeted for attack but in the borderless Internet-connected world, disruptions to business IT processes can cripple your operations and allow your competitors to gain market share. The ISO 27001 Certification for Security Management Systems offers a systematic and well-structured approach that will protect the confidentiality of your information, ensure the integrity of business data and improve the availability of your business IT systems.
How can you prepare for the ISO 27001 Certification?
Like many other management systems, the ISO 27001 certification is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act approach to quality improvement. You can prepare for the standard by undergoing training to learn more about it. TÜV SÜD offers a foundation course that provides an overview of the standard’s requirements. You will also learn what your organization needs to do to ensure its continued compliance to the standard after initial certification.
