More information on ISO 27001 accreditation
ISO 27001 accreditation details the requirements for businesses to securely manage information assets and data to an internationally recognised standard. It provides a robust approach for managing assets such as employee details, patient information, intellectual property, financial information and third-party data.
The accreditation requires the business to assess their information security risks, put in place robust security controls and processes, and embed information security management across the organisation.
Achieving accredited ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that a company is dedicated to following the best practices of information security. Additionally, ISO 27001 certification provides an expert evaluation of whether an organisation’s information is adequately protected.
