ISO 27001 Information Security Management in Kent & London

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001:2013 is an internationally recognised and accepted standard for the management of an organisation's information security.

The standard requires the adoption of a risk based approach to assessing your information security arrangements and ensures that security measures that are the right fit for you and your needs as a business can be prioritised, implemented and managed accordingly.

Once in place, ISO 27001:2013 provides a robust management framework that enables a business to effectively review and continually improve the management of its information security arrangements. Within the standard, Annex A consists of 114 Information Security ‘controls’, the applicability of each to your business needs to be assessed. These controls determine the way in which you can effectively manage the security of your systems and information.  

Information security is critical for both large and small businesses alike. Any business of any size has both legal obligations and business opportunities with regards to how it uses, stores and manages its data. ISO 27001:2013 recognises that the risks posed to businesses in different industries and of different sizes will vary and the standard enables a business to determine the level of risks within their own organisation and to implement the controls necessary to them.

Why Implement ISO 27001?

Secure Information

In today’s online environment, threats to information security are constantly evolving. ISO 27001:2013 gives a structured approach to addressing the different elements of your organisations information security management system to keep information assets secure. The loss of confidentiality, integrity or availability of information and information assets can have serious implications for all businesses.

To Meet Tender Requirements

Increasingly UK and international businesses are insisting their key suppliers gain certification to ISO 27001:2013. Meeting the requirements of the standard therefore gives your existing customers assurance that you are a secure business to work with who takes information security and the handling of their information seriously. Certification also opens up opportunities to gain new clients looking for suppliers with a UKAS registered ISO 27001:2013 certificate.

Contractual and Legal Compliance

Within the framework of ISO 27001:2013 an assessment of the contractual, legal and other obligations with regards to information security will be undertaken. Any necessary controls to meet these obligations will become embedded within your Information Security Management System and therefore be effectively managed on an ongoing basis.

ISO 27001:2013 helps provide a business with protection, and offers piece of mind for those with ownership responsibilities within a business.

The implementation time-frame for ISO 27001:2013 will be dependent on the controls a business currently has in place, the size of the business and the complexity of its systems.
