Trust is created when information is secure.
Robert Mueller (FBI director 2012), once said: “There are two types of companies: those that have been hacked and those that will be”.
Any business or organization that has valuable data and information is at constant risk, since their breach by unauthorized persons can have devastating consequences. This threat is more relevant than ever and therefore, the need for security and information protection is now imperative.
ISO / IEC 27001 international certification is a strong defense system for the information security management, which is why more and more companies and organizations choose to invest in it.
Data and information breach can occur as a result of many factors. Some of them may be malicious attacks, failure of the system itself and the procedures followed. This means that at any time, financial and other confidential information concerning the company itself or its customers, health data or personal data, or trade secrets may be lost.
Every modern business must therefore be proactive and use the right tools, following the requirements and procedures of an international standard that is sealed by obtaining the ISO 27001 certificate. This will help avoid risks and will ensure the integrity, security and preservation of information and data the company has got in its possession.
The international ISO / IEC 27001 certification also helps to comply with the GDPR, i.e., the EU General Data Protection Regulation, which encourages the use of ISO 27001 certification systems. Thus, every organization will be able to demonstrate that it actively manages the security of its data according to international best practices.
What is ISO 27001?
ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard which mentions in detail the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continuously improving an informationsecurity management system.
It aims to help businesses and organizations follow best practices in order to keep data and stakeholder information secure. Stakeholders can be customers, organizations and businesses, staff, partners and society in general.
This international standard includes the three main aspects of an integrated information security system: people, processes and technology. With this comprehensive approach, no information should be used by unauthorized persons and its theft, disclosure, alteration or destruction will be avoided.
Every business or organization anywhere in the world should comprehend this standard as a tool to process any kind of information, to know where it is in order to extract it, but above all to assimilate the procedures in order to protect it.
Both the protection of personal data and the management of risks related to to natural disasters, external attacks, internal corruption, theft, failure or malfunction of IT systems are matters of vital importance for organizations and businesses. Defamation and heavy fines are just some of the consequences of not having a comprehensive information security management system.
Safeguarding the confidentiality of information, as well as maintaining it within the company, is of the utmost importance even for its existence.
The international standard ISO/IEC 27001 is applicable to all companies and organizations (private and public companies or organizations, government authorities, associations, industry, commerce, call centers, logistics, accounting support, healthcare, sales promotion and service provision, etc.) that process data of any kind around the world.
