World Book Day is fast approaching (2nd March 2023), and it got the Mark1 team thinking – are you keeping your books to the standard of ISO 27001? In this blog, we will break down this standard, and explain how it can help you to maintain the processes that your clients expect.
What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 “is the world’s best known standard for information security management systems (ISMS) and their requirements”, to quote ISO. This standard extends to data protection and cyber resilience. In simple terms, ISO 27001 mandates asset security (like financial information, employee data or intellectual property), and provides assurance that third parties can trust your business to store their data responsibly.
Why Is It Useful?
Keeping your books well is not as simple as making your business smoother to run – it is also a commitment that you make to clients when they choose to work with you. The three main goals of ISO 27001 are to protect confidentiality, integrity, and availability, all of which can be beneficial to your reputation. Getting certified can also help you to fulfil your legal obligations relating to information security.
