What is ISO/IEC 27001?
ISO/IEC 27001 is the leading international standard for information security management. It covers commercial, governmental and not-for-profit organizations, and specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, monitoring and improving an information security management system (ISMS).
Why is ISO/IEC 27001 important for your business?
Your organization may not consider its information to be vulnerable or targeted for attack but in the borderless Internet-connected world, disruptions to business IT processes can cripple your operations and allow your competitors to gain market share.
