What is the Primary Goal of ISO 27001?

Achieving ISO 27001 certification is an internationally recognised symbol of excellence in information security. This can help you to stand out from your competitors as a business to be trusted by potential clients. In this blog, we will break down the primary goal of the information security standard, and explain how this ISO certification can be achieved.

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is a standard in the International Organisation for Standardisation 27000 family, which governs the implementation of an information security management system (ISMS). This standard approaches the process from a risk-based perspective. This ensures that each threat is identified, dissected, and protected against in the most effective ways possible.

Primary Requirements 

There are three main principles of ISO 27001, all of which can benefit your business. When constructing a Information Security Management System, you should ensure that you prioritise confidentiality. This is so that information is only accessible by those who are authorised to see it. Secondly, information integrity should be protected. Such that it can only be edited or changed by authorised people. Finally, availability is key; anyone who is authorised to see the information should have uninterrupted and prompt access to it.

ISO: Standards to Strive For

Any organisation that deals with sensitive information can become ISO 27001 certified. It may be of particular interest for certain industries, including IT, pharmaceutical, and finance. Following the guidelines set out in the ISO standard, your business or organisation can signify to those who use it that their information is valued, protected, and safeguarded to the best of your ability.
