Information – a valuable asset
In this time of increasing digitisation, information technology is an integral part of business life. Every day, organisations are surrounded by a wide variety of confidential information and data, which have to be protected against the growing threat from cyber attacks and data theft. Well- functioning information security management supports your organisation in closing security loopholes and minimising risks.
With certification according to ISO 27001, you can provide objective and credible evidence of the effectiveness of your Information Security Management System (ISMS). This internationally recognised standard defines the requirements for establishment, implementation, documentation and improvement of an ISMS. Existing risks for your organisation are identified, analysed and then eliminated based on effective and appropriate measures. This means you can protect your confidential data and improve the integrity and availability of your IT systems.
But ISO 27001 is not limited only to IT processes, it also takes aspects of infrastructure into consideration – such as organisation, personnel and buildings. For data security is becoming an ever more important factor in competition. This applies above all to operators of critical infrastructure, who, according to the BSI Act on strengthening the security of federal information technology, are obliged to guarantee a certain minimum level of IT security.
ISO 27001 also embodies the Plan-Do-Check-Act scheme and, because of its High Level Structure, can be completely integrated into an existing management system in accordance with ISO 9001 or ISO 14001.
