Achieving ISO 27001 certification ensures that a business has taken appropriate measures towards protection of its information assets / business-critical data which helps build trust in the business, stimulate new opportunities, protects the organisation's from exposure to security threats, avoid reputational damage as well as stiff fines and penalties associated with regulatory non-compliance.
However, the journey to achieve ISO 27001 certification can be complex and daunting for an organisation. Where to begin? How to identify the risks to the business? Which policies & controls must be implemented? What technical setup is required to meet ISO 27001 requirements? Many organisations seeking ISO 27001 are struggling to find the right approach to effectively address information security, cybersecurity, and privacy protection needs of the standard and stay compliant.
