Information Security

Your Data is Valuable, That’s Why Criminals Want to Steal It!

We live in a world where internet enabled cyber-attacks are one of the fastest growing phenomena on the planet.  At the extreme end this spectrum are cyber-warfare and cyber-terrorism, but for most organisations the biggest threat is from cyber-crime.


You can of course protect yourself by unplugging from the world wide web and avoiding the use of computers, but today that is not a credible option for almost anyone. So what is the alternative?

ISO 27000

The ISO 27000 family of standards helps organisations keep their valuable and sensitive information assets safe and secure.

Using this family of standards will help your organisation manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details, or information entrusted to you by third parties. In doing so it can help you win new business, keep existing business, avoid financial loss and expensive litigation, and protect your hard-won reputation.

It is also an effective means of demonstrating compliance with many of the large and growing body of legal, regulatory and contractual compliance requirements organisations are increasingly obliged to adhere to today.

ISO/IEC 27001 is the best-known standard in the information security (InfoSec) family providing requirements for an information security management system (ISMS).

What is an ISMS?

An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing the sensitive information in your organisation so that it remains secure. It includes people, processes and technology (e.g. IT systems) and works by applying a risk management process.

It can help small, medium and large businesses in any sector keep information assets secure.


Like other ISO management system standards, certification to ISO/IEC 27001 is advisable and beneficial but not obligatory. Some organisations choose to implement the standard in order to benefit from the good practices it contains while others decide they also want to get certified to reassure customers and clients that its recommendations have been followed and that their data is protected, as validated by an independent body.
