ISO 27001:2013 Certification

ISO 27001 sets out the requirements of information security management system. It is part of the ISO 27000 family of standards relating to information and cyber security and offers a comprehensive set of controls, based on best practice in information security.

Similar to the other management standards, it is suitable for organisations of all sizes. 70% of small businesses believe they are not a target for any data theft or misuse; it is a problem for either larger businesses or only those in the financial sector – this is simply not true.

Any business holding data on individuals or companies can be a target for fraud, theft, misuse or abuse, resulting in a long lasting loss of reputation and if a company’s systems are found negligent at keeping data secure, then it can result in prosecution.

Every business believes they have insurance to cover eventualities such as fraud and theft, but they don’t realise they also owe a duty of care which if not exercised can lead to any insurance claim being declined.

ISO 27001 helps organisations to treat data security seriously, putting in systems and processes to guard against the risk of security breaches or misuse of data. It works with your business and the kind of data it holds, whether that is bank account details, staff records, passwords, or client confidential information.
