ISO 27001:2013 - Information Security Management Systems

You cannot be too careful when it comes to protecting assets. The ISO 27001 standard helps to monitor the controls in place and implement improvements where necessary.

Information is vital to every organisation and the Information Security standard provides an auditable method of monitoring, protecting and managing information and data systems. Loss of data, information and assets of any kind can at the very least be inconvenient to an organisation. At worst, it can lead to its collapse.

By becoming ISO 27001 certified, you are not only protecting your own organisation but it will give your customers and employees confidence in the knowledge that security risks have been thoroughly assessed through a Risk Assessment and where required treated to mitigate any risks considered ‘high’. The standard also touches on Business Continuity and a plan relevant to your information and processing facilities will be developed to enable you to recover information quickly in the event of an incident with minimal disruption to the business. There are many benefits which have been recognised by certified companies, one which Global QA Consultants feel is particularly important is the driving in compliance with business, legal, contractual and regulatory requirements. Legislation is key to any business and the UK Data Protection commissioner recognises this standard as a way of aiding companies in meeting the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998.

An ISO 27001 management system can be started from scratch or integrated into any current management systems you are already compliant to. One of our Information Security Consultants will guide and be available to you throughout the process of implementation to ISO 27001.

Global QA Consultants will provide a bespoke Information Security manual which will help you identify, reduce and manage any potential risks that could affect the security of your information.
