ISO 27001:2013 specifies requirements for information security management. It details the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continuously improving an information security management system (ISMS). ISO 27001:2013 is to help organizations make the information assets they hold more secure.
Organizations receive, manage and send a large amount of information daily. Information transfer occurs in a world becoming increasingly vulnerable to malicious activity due to increased interconnectivity, devices, and distributed applications. Therefore, this results in increased security requirements to protect the organizations’ critical information from leakage, deliberate alteration, or even interruption of availability.
Why is ISO 27001:2013 so important for organizations?
A large percentage of Organizations base their operation on information systems. As a fact, this increases the risk of attacks on their information infrastructure. Also, this results in the theft or loss of information, breach of privacy, shutdown of critical systems, etc. Therefore, it is very likely that the Organizations will suffer severe consequences. As a result, their operation will face suspension. Also, they will have severe financial implications and effects on their reputation.
The ISO 27001: 2013 standard provides a sound and appropriately structured approach to information security and improves the availability of information systems and, consequently, organizations.
Through ISO 27001: 2013, the following are achieved:
- Identification and analysis of risks related to information security.
