ISO 27001 is one of the fastest-growing management standards in the world, with certifications growing at an annual rate of 20%. If you have not already done so, it may be time to consider this standard for your organization.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001) is the international standard that describes best practices for an information security management system (ISMS). Achieving accredited certification to ISO 27001 demonstrates that your company is following information security best practice, backed by an independent, expert assessment of whether your data is adequately protected. ISO 27001 is supported by its code of practice for information security management, ISO/IEC 27002:2013.
Implementing an ISMS based on ISO 27001 is a complex undertaking that will involve the whole organization. It can take anything from three months to a year from scoping to certification, depending on numerous factors specific to the organization (IT Governance’s FastTrack™ consultancy, for example, guarantees certification for small businesses in three months).
An ISMS is specific to the organization that implements it, so no two ISO 27001 projects are the same. Although there is no typical ISO 27001 implementation project, we recommend the nine-step approach:
Accredited certification to ISO/IEC 27001 demonstrates to existing and potential customers that your organization has defined and put in place best-practice information security processes.
Because of these many benefits, thousands of organizations around the world are implementing an ISMS aligned with ISO 27001. It helps safeguard their sensitive data, avoid financial penalties related to data breaches, and allows them to tender for contracts where ISO 27001 is a requirement.
