ISO 27001 INFORMATION SECURITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
WHAT IS ISO 27001 CERTIFICATION?
Information is the lifeblood of all organizations and can exist in many forms. It can be printed or written on paper, stored electronically, transmitted by mail or by electronic means, shown in films, or spoken in conversation. In today’s competitive business environment, such information is constantly under threat from many sources. These can be internal, external, accidental, or malicious.
There is a need to establish a comprehensive Information Security Policy within all organizations. You need to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of both vital corporate information and customer information.
An Information Security Management System (ISMS) is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure.
