What is ISO 27001?
You wouldn’t leave your house unlocked so that anyone can stroll in and have access to your personal possessions, so why would you allow people to get into your files and gain access to your confidential information? ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised standard for information security. Its focus is to regulate and improve processes that your business may already have in place to ensure confidentiality and protection from things such as a data breach.
Small Errors, Big Consequences
Thousands of companies become a victim of data breaches each year and this is due to many reasons, one reason being passwords. Although it seems so simple, people still brush past it, but it is a top way that hackers can access your company information. Ensuring your passwords are made up of capital letters, lower case letters, numbers, and symbols and are changed every so often can be the next step to protecting your business and ISO 27001 will guide your business with this.
Hundreds of phishing emails are sent every day and they can be so easy to fall for but open the door for hackers to access any confidential information. ISO 27001 implements efficient training so that employees are aware of the dangers which could simply be sat in their emails.
Following Government Legislation
ISO 27001 will ensure your business is compliant with government legislation such as GDPR. The Data Protection Regulation is a framework for data protection laws and gives people more control over how their information is being used. It ensures that data protection is stronger so that personal and confidential information is not being exploited. Those who are unable to comply with GDPR could be hit with a costly fine but with the guidance of ISO 27001, your business will have less worry.
