ISO 27001 certification is a valuable asset for your business. It helps you to stand out from your competitors, keep your data secure, and improve your processes. In this blog, we will break down exactly what this standard entails, and how Mark1 can help you to achieve it.
What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is the standard that governs information security management systems. It dictates best practice on creating systems to manage information security within your business, organising information security, and then monitoring and maintaining your systems. Encompassing all the data that your business stores (electronically, in physical copies, or even through third parties), ISO 27001 is far more comprehensive than GDPR.
Benefits to Your Business?
As with all ISO standards, ISO 27001 can be applied to any size or industry of business. It has three main focuses; confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The standard instructs that data must be protected against being accessed by unauthorised personnel (for example, through encryption and two-factor identification). It also requires data to be accurate, verified, and unmanipulated. Finally, availability refers to the ways that you should be maintaining and optimising your data storage methods.
