ISO/IEC 27001 assists professionals in understanding the practical approaches that are involved in the implementation of an Information Security Management System that preserves the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information by applying a risk management process.

Therefore, implementation of an information security management system that complies with all requirements of ISO/IEC 27001 enables an organisations to assess and treat information security risks that they face.

Certified ISO/IEC 27001 individuals will prove that they possess the necessary expertise to support organisations implement information security policies and procedures tailored to the organisation’s needs and promote continual improvement of the management system and organisations operations.

How do you get an ISO 27001 certification?

The process requires that individuals within the organisation sit for training courses with the goal of preparing the business for an audit. This preparation includes a review of information systems and security procedures.

After this, an independent audit will verify if the organisation adheres to requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continuously improving your information security management system (ISMS) and keeping information assets secure. Such information assets can include your company's financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by partners and third parties.
