What Is ISO 27001?ISO 27001 is an international standard for the implementation of an enterprise-wide Information Security Management System (ISMS), an organized approach to maintaining confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA) in an organization. It offers double benefits — an excellent framework to comply with to protect information assets from malicious actors and a differentiating factor to give an organization an edge over its competitors. The global standard provides complete guidance on building, implementing, maintaining, and consistently improving the ISMS.
The establishment and implementation of ISMS depends upon various factors;
- Business objectives of the organization.
- Needs of the organization.
- Security requirements.
- Internal and external processes of the organization.
- Size and structure of the organization.
