In today’s world, domestic, national and international commerce and services are entirely dependent upon the controlled exchange and use of information. All forms of information are exposed to many risks from acts of nature and user error to internal corruption and theft. In addition, computer-based information is subject to security threats that arise from sources around the globe.
A growing body of legislation and regulation has arisen to tackle these risks; some are aimed at ensuring the protection of individual data and some mandate corporate requirements to demonstrate that financial, operational and risk management systems are appropriately underpinned.
ISO/IEC 27001 provides a framework for establishing, operating and maintaining an Information Security Management System (ISMS). Applied effectively, this standard enables an organisation to apply a balanced system of information protection and controlled information exchange and use.
Implementing an ISMS separates leading companies from their rivals. In addition to market differentiation and reputational enhancement, an effective ISMS targets key risk areas to mitigate possible breach of legal and regulatory requirements and minimise business impact.
Bywater offers a range of public training, in-house training, consultancy and mentoring services to assist in the achievement of successful Information Security Management. For a list of our ISO 27001 ISMS training courses, click here.
