ISO 27001 is the internationally-recognised standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS).
An ISMS outlines your organisation’s approach to Information Security. It helps you protect and manage your organisation’s information through effective risk management, minimising the risks of security breaches and increases client trust.
ISO 27001 certification demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to prevent the theft, loss, damage or misuse of any sensitive information it holds or has access to. Any size or type of organisation that wants to implement a robust system for protecting its data and provide confidence to its customers that any information they provide is kept secure can benefit from this type of ISO certification.

For certain types of organisations, achieving ISO 27001 certification can lower their insurance premiums, reduce the risk of a disruption to their services and open up opportunities to do business with customers who hold or need to exchange sensitive information.
An ISMS proves you maintain a thorough security management program and can also simplify third-party due diligence making your security verification process for your organisation faster and more efficient.
By being ISO 27001 certified your organisations will become more organised in terms of the management of your security. There will be a clear delegation of responsibilities, as everyone knows who is responsible for managing specific information assets. This prevents confusion and streamlines the process.
There are a host of consequences due to a data breaches and these can cause major problems not only in the short-term such as financial implications but long-term reputational risks. If your company suffers from a data breach, for whatever reason, it can have devastating effects in the form of prosecution, expensive fines, lost reputation, and disruptions to normal business practices, to name a few. These consequences can cause massive issues across your company and could even lead the business to cease operations entirely.
