Achieve compliance while protecting your data from real-world threats. Our team of compliance experts and technical specialists ensure the end result not only ticks boxes, but improves overall security for your organisation.
Put simply, ISO 27001 is an internationally agreed-upon standard for organisations seeking to implement an IT security program, known as an Information Security Management System (ISMS). It allows an organisation to implement a risk-based framework for managing security on an ongoing basis, in a way that adheres to international best practices.
Large companies are increasingly requiring their business partners to acquire and maintain ISO compliance, in order to minimise risk and demonstrate diligence in security matters.
Besides being a requirement for working with certain 3rd parties, ISO 27001 is a worthwhile security framework in its own right, given its flexible, risk-based approach. It is also gaining traction due to its close alignment with other, more localised security frameworks.
By promoting your conformance to information security standards, your organisation can demonstrate to its customers that it takes the security and privacy of their data seriously.
ISO 27001 defines a detailed process for developing the ISMS, beginning with scoping out the system's inclusions (e.g., information assets), identifying the risks that those assets face, determining how to respond to those threats, implementing controls to address threats, auditing those controls, and finally applying feedback into the system to ensure continual improvement.
Once an organisation is ready, they are then externally audited to ensure that they meet the requirements, and that there is evidence that the system is being actively maintained.
Acumenis can provide consulting and guidance during the process, beginning with the initial risk assessment through to the development of plans, policies and procedures, as well as implementing technical controls.
Our security consultants aren't just passionate about information security — they have the experience and qualifications to back it up.
For our clients, this means our recommendations are more than just security "best practice" — they're effective, proven strategies that are achievable for your IT or dev team. The end result is a management system that not only achieves compliance, but actually provides effective security.
