ISO 27001 is an international standard for Information Security Management. It also provides a model to establish, implement, maintain and continually improve a risk-managed ISMS (Information Security Management System).  As a result, this provides reassurance to business sponsors and stakeholders.  Likewise, this is a certification that customers and suppliers choose to ensure the business has control over its data security and risk management.

The standard forms the basis for effective management of confidential and sensitive information and for the application of information security controls.  Even more importantly, ISO 27001 is globally recognised, hence our growing number of international candidates.

Any business that conforms to the ISO 27001 standard shows clear evidence of its commitment to continued improvement and control over its sensitive and confidential information.

Above all, the ISO 27001 standard is adaptable according to an organisation’s individual requirements and nature of business.  In contrast to GDPR, it is a lot more extensive and covers all information not just personal identifiable information.  The standard seems like a complicated process, therefore, we break it down into easy to cover modules

The ISMS is tailored to the organisation’s objectives and information assets.  Operational processes, governing legal requirements and regulatory security requirements are also covered.

There is a strong link that ISO 27001 has with the General Data Protection Regulation, COBIT 5 and other frameworks.  Most noteworthy is that the course is growing in popularity, as a result, we are offering more dates and venues across the UK.  This is certainly a course for future CIO’s and CISO’s.

Furthermore, ISO 27001 is an information security standard, part of the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards, of which the last version was published in 2013.  There have been a few minor updates since then, mainly for the reason that it is constantly changing and first of all the reason was GDPR. It is published by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) under the joint ISO and IEC subcommittee.

The regulation specifies a management system that is intended to bring information security under control, while managing the process.   Above all, ISO 27001 gives specific requirements to organisations. Consequently, businesses that meet the requirements may be certified by an accredited certification body following a successful audit.  As a result of this need, 2414 began the process of becoming certified as an ISO 27001 training provider.
