ISO 27001- Lead Auditor Training


ISO 27001 Relevance to Business and Customers

ISO 27001 involves establishing and maintaining a documented system of controls whereby management of risks can be possible; risks can be identified and reduced. Achieving ISO 27001 certification shows that a business has protected information from getting into unauthorized hands, and ensured information is accurate and can only be modified by authorized users.

Organizations that process client data, and provide business products and solutions make ISO 27001 not only an internal control requirement but also a business requirement. Often ISO 27001 is implemented in response to a business requirement raised by the Chief Operating Officer.

Organizations that are awarded ISO 270012013 certification can claim that they:

  • Are taking appropriate control measures to protect confidential and privileged information.
  • Are following international best practices to mitigate cyber threats and have a cyber incident response and management processes to respond to cyber-attacks.
  • Have established a formal information risk management process and a functioning ISMS or Information Security Risk Management System.

More tangible business benefits of having formal risk management processes and an ISMS include:

  • Building a solid foundation to comply with existing and upcoming national and international regulations (like the EU GDPR, for example) thereby, possibly, avoiding costly regulatory penalties and financial loss.
  • Increasing the overall security maturity of your business.
  • Assuring customers and regulators that the business takes cyber security risks seriously.
  • Protecting and enhancing your brand reputation.
  • Satisfying audit requirements by internal teams, customers, and or regulators.
  • Possibly realizing financial savings in the long run (reduce expenditure on technology incidents, regulatory fines, and non-compliance).

ISO 27001 covers the following areas of security

  • Risk assessment
  • Security policy
  • Organization of information security
  • Asset management
  • Human resources security
  • Physical and environmental controls
  • Communication & operations control
  • Access management
  • Information Systems Acquisitions, development, and maintenance
  • Information security incident management
  • Business continuity management
  • Compliance

Not only does ISO 27001 certification help you demonstrate good security practices, thereby improving working relationships and retaining existing clients, but it also gives you a proven marketing edge against your competitors, putting you alongside the likes of Google, Microsoft, and Amazon. Organizations dealing with ISO 27001 certified organizations have a level of confidence in safe operations and the existence of business continuity management. This ensures a secure dealing
and security of their data residing in the organization.
