Ding, ding, ding! We are officially certified to ISO 27001!
With cyber attacks on the rise, information security has become more vital for businesses (big or small).
So it only made sense for us to protect our business from these sort of threats and become ISO 27001 certified.
We chose ISO 27001 over other options as it is an internationally recognised standard and the best practice requirements fit with well with our business. Over the past year, we have been busy putting processes and procedures in place that meet the requirements of this standard.
Why you should consider getting ISO 27001 certifiedThere are many reasons to get certified. These are some you may want to consider:
- To protect your data from cyber-attacks, data breaches, hacking and malware viruses
- Customers want their information and data secure
- Increases your chances of winning new business
Just like any standard, preparation for this audit required a lot of research, planning and action. During the process, we struggled to find informative material out there to guide us. This encouraged us to write a blog series on achieving ISO 27001 and how to meet each clause. You can find these here.
If you're looking at going for this standard then we highly recommend you read these blogs. They provide plenty of tips on how to achieve each section and also ideas on how to adjust them to fit your organisation. Enjoy!
