ISO 27001 implementation and certification
More and more organizations are successfully using the ISO 27001 standard to organize their information security. This international standards framework has proven to be an excellent standard for realizing information security, risk management and the continuous improvement of processes in an organization.
The purpose of ISO 27001 is to implement an ISMS (“Information Security Management System”): a structural, risk-based approach to guarantee the availability, integrity and confidentiality of information. An ISMS can be set up at all organizations, regardless of size, maturity or sector, and ensures that the approach to information security is in line with the needs and goals of the organization.
We believe that the implementation of ISO 27001 can only be successful if it is well aligned with the organization and not only the implementation and certification, but also the awareness and acceptance are the main goals.
An ISO 27001 implementation offers the possibility to implement and manage a wide range of security measures in the area of people, process and technology in a process-oriented manner. The ISO 27002 standard is used as ‘best practice’ for the implementation of these measures. This will make a major contribution to increasing the digital resilience of the organization.
Organizations are not legally obliged to be ISO 27001 certified, but various laws and regulations indirectly refer to standards such as ISO 27001. For example, the AVG / GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and also the WBNI (Network and Information Systems Security Act) demand “appropriate technical and organizational measures”.
To demonstrate that your organization endorses the importance of information security and is continuously developing it, the implementation of ISO 27001 can be verified and certified by an external auditor.
For example, if you are a service provider, you can give your customers assurance that the organization is continuously committed to guaranteeing and improving information security.
One of the main advantages of Traxion is knowledge and experience. Our CISOs and Security Officers support organizations to implement ISO 27001. And if you want it, the implementation can be certified. We do this by familiarizing you with the ISO 27001 standard. Where necessary, policy is drawn up and measures are implemented. In addition, Traxion helps already certified organizations to reach the next maturity level through the process of continuous improvement.
