Information Security Management System Certification

Information security is important for every company within all areas of business − hardly any company today can deny the importance of keeping their information secure. Having an information security management system (ISMS) that is certified on the basis of the international ISO/IEC 27001 standard shows that your organization manages its information properly and systematically thus keeping your information correct, easily accessible and well protected.

Certificate is a strong signal to your customers and other stakeholders: it tells them that your organization invests in risk management and is a reliable business partner.

The standard covers all areas of your information security management, such as:

  • System scope definition, risk assessment and documentation management
  • Information security principles and objectives of the organization
  • Roles and responsibilities within your organization
  • Protection of your information, facilities and equipment e.g. from hackers
  • Minimization of human risks and abuse of information
  • Hardware and telecommunications management
  • Software development and maintenance
  • Backup systems and plans
