In a world of ever-increasing reliance on data and information, all companies are at risk of fraud, disclosure and information loss, whether from hackers, viruses, online fraudsters or even simple human error.

Adopting ISO 27001: 2013 will provide your organisation with a framework for creating an information security management system which identifies the real risks your business faces and ensures that you have the controls in place to mitigate and manage those risks.

There are three core principles involved in managing the security of information: confidentiality, integrity and availability. ISO 27001: 2013 will enable you to demonstrate the integrity of your data and your commitment to information governance whilst inspiring confidence in your client base that their data is totally secure.

ISO 27001 can be applied to any size of business across all industry sectors. It is particularly important to companies whose information is sensitive and critical, such as, IT, finance, health and public agencies and those managing information on behalf of others.
