INFORMATION SECURITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

An Information Security Management System (ISMS) is a set of policies and procedures implemented by organisations to manage information risks such as cyber attacks or data theft. ISO 27001 is the auditable international standard that requires a company to establish, implement and maintain best-practice information processes via its ISMS. As with any other compliance standards, ISO 27001 follows the plan-do-check-act (PDCA) cycle. An accredited certification to ISO/IEC 27001 is essential to demonstrate world-class information security standards to customers and potential clients.

What are the benefits of ISO 27001 certification for your ISMS?

  • Protect Your Assets and Reputation
    An ISO 27001-certified ISMS helps to protect your organisation against information security threats like cyber attacks, data leaks or theft. Also, effective security measures minimise the financial and reputational damage that can result from weak security policies and catastrophic data breaches.
  • Comply with the Latest Regulatory Requirements
    ISO 27001 compliance within ISMS ensures the implementation of proper security controls in line with the latest business, legal, contractual and regulatory requirements. It also adheres to cybersecurity laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or the NIS Directive.
  • Minimise Penalties and Losses with Data Breaches
    ISO 27001 minimises the risk of financial penalties and losses caused by data breaches due to non-compliance with information security requirements. A new report by IBM Security and Ponemon Institute set the average cost of a data breach in South Africa at R32.36 million, a 12% increase from 2016. (source: businesstech.co.za)
  • Gain Competitive Market Advantage
    ISO 27001 assists organisations to enforce good security practices in line with international standards and major certified players such as Google and Microsoft. The information security certification boosts market recognition, business growth, and customer retention through innovative and competitive policies.
  • Enhance Security Audit Practices
    ISO 27001 certification gives the organisation access to regular reviews, and internal ISMS audits to ensure continuous improvement and maximum security protocols efficiency. The global security standard accreditation means that audit extends to independent and unbiased external assessment at specific set intervals, reducing frequent customer audits.
