ISO 27001:2013 Consultants

What is Information Security Management System (ISMS)?

A step-by-step method of identifying information that is key to business success. ISMS also include a comprehensive approach in assessing risks on one hand, and identifying opportunities for improvement. Such opportunities take the shape of designing, documenting, implementing, measuring, auditing and continuously improving information security posture. Improvement can take place both due to proactive process such as risk assessment, and reactive such as Incidents. In simple words, a proactive approach to preventing and reacting to information related incidents.

ISO 27001 Information Security Management Systems is the international best practice standard for information security. ISO 27001:2013, the current version of the standard, provides a set of standardized requirements for an information security management system (ISMS). ISO 27001 certification is suitable for any organization, large or small and in any sector.  The standard is especially suitable where the protection of information is critical, such as in the banking, financial, health, public and IT sectors. The standard is also very applicable for organizations which manage high volumes of data, or information on behalf of other organizations such as datacenters and IT out sourcing companies

The ability to be aware of what is our present weakness and our ability to know how we will react– is in essence a true impact of a formal ISMS. On the contrary not being aware of any aspect of the any part of the system and its security relevance, or the approach that we will take in case of a failure - therefore demonstrates the absence of ISMS.
