ISO 27001 Information and Data Security Compliance


ISO/IEC 27001 is an information risk management standard designed to provide guidance in the selection of adequate and proportionate controls to protect information.  The Standard provides for certification of parts of the business and therefore can provide third parties and customers with confidence that information they share with certified companies will be protected. ISO 27001 is becoming more relevant in the current climate as organisations look for ways to manage their information risks.


ISO 27001 implementation is intended to provide businesses with an appropriate level of information security protection.  The Standard sets out a number of controls that need to be in place to meet the certification requirements such as:

  • Identifying information security risks
  •  Proactively managing compliance with laws and regulations
  • Providing a framework for the implementation and management of controls
  • Setting out the objectives of information security management
  • Defining the information security policies, processes and standards to be adopted by the business
