Key Principles of the ISO 27001 Cybersecurity Framework
In today’s digital business environment, the implementation of information security standards can be just as important to an organization’s success as its products and services. With cyberattacks on the rise and cybercriminals growing more sophisticated, an information security framework establishes a strong foundation for data protection, privacy, and organizational risk management.
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized information security standard that offers a comprehensive set of best practice controls designed to help organizations manage and mitigate information security risks. With a focus on continual improvement, ISO 27001 helps organizations systematically identify, assess, and address their information security risks. Whether your organization is focused on protecting sensitive customer data or ensuring regulatory compliance, ISO 27001 can help you meet your objectives.
Achieving and maintaining ISO 27001 certification requires an organization to implement a comprehensive information security management system (ISMS), which includes a risk assessment process.
