What is ISO 27001?
A global standard for information security management, it helps ensure that only the right people have the right access when they need it. The larger goal is to provide a framework that organizations can follow to manage risk and better protect the information and reputation of their employees and customers.
Why is ISO 27001 important?
These standards put everyone on an equal footing and encourage a continued focus on safety.
Blogs like ours try to make security interesting and exciting, but a good deal of security is carefully considered policies and processes. After all, having good systems in place to handle small problems keeps them from turning into damaging failures. This certification demonstrates a mature security program and commitment to a comprehensive security policy, both large and small.
Who obtains the certification? What is required?
This accreditation is not the exclusive territory of technology companies like ours. More and more law firms, healthcare, financial institutions, and other security-conscious institutions are looking for it to help them compete globally.
In order to prove that the standard is met, an organization must be audited by an accredited independent third party. Over a year of work, we have sought this to protect ourselves and our customers.
