ISO27001 Compliance

HomeSecurity ConsultingISO27001 Compliance

ISO (Internal Standards Organization) standards are part of a growing compliance requirement that brings similar or related businesses into programmatic alignment:  it simplifies the process of  conducting business between two or more companies.

ISO27001 is a standard with a broad appeal and has been developed to keep IT information assets secure. Examples include financial information, intellectual property, employee details or even information entrusted to an entity by third parties. Of course certification to ISO27001 is not just about achieving a certificate – it is about implementing targeted standards of excellence and measuring results against target, and then reacting to close any gaps. It is also a method of assuring your clients that you are able to secure their proprietary and industry-sensitive information that has been shared with your organization.

First Info Sec Value-Add

As a company specializing in standards compliance, First Info Sec partners with your business to ensure a thorough analysis of current capability and processes. From this analysis an understanding of the gap between the current position and the final security objective is defined and agreed; First Info Sec will then make recommendations on security control implementation to minimize the risk to the business’ information.

First Info Sec partners with your business in this process because certification requires an organization to undertake the compliance journey in order to embed the best practices inherent in ISO 27001.   Following the Assessment recommendations and an agreement of the next steps, FIS provides full implementation support in order to successfully roll out the remediation plans and help you to integrate the latest information security protection processes in your day-to-day operations.
