ISO 27001 (formally known as ISO/IEC 27001:2005) is a specification for an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is a framework of policies and procedures that include all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organisation’s information risk management processes.

What is the purpose of ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 was developed to help organization, of any size or industry, to protect their information in a systematic and cost effective way, through the adoption of an Information Security Management System (ISMS).

Why is ISO 27001 important?

Not only does the standard provide companies with the necessary know-how for protecting their most valuable information, but a company can also get certified against ISO 27001 and, in this way, prove their skills to potential employers.

Because it is an international standard, ISO 27001 is easily recognized all around the world, increasing business opportunities for organizations and professionals.

What are the three ISMS security objectives?

The basic goal of ISO 27001 is to protect three aspects of information:

  • Confidentiality: only the authorized persons have the right to access information.
  • Integrity: only the authorized persons can change the information.
  • Availability: the information must be accessible to authorized persons whenever it is needed.
