Publisher's Summary

Protect your organization’s information with ISO 27001:2013.

Information is one of your organization’s most important resources, and keeping that information secure is vital to your business. This handy pocket guide is an essential overview of two key information security standards that cover the formal requirements (ISO27001:2013) for creating an information security management system (ISMS) and the best-practice recommendations (ISO27002:2013) for those responsible for initiating, implementing, or maintaining it.

An ISMS based on ISO27001/ISO27002 offers a host of benefits:

  • Improved efficiency by having information security systems and procedures in place, enabling you to focus more on your core business.
  • Protects your information assets from a wide range of cyber threats, criminal activity, insider compromise, and system failure.
  • Manage your risks systematically and establish plans to eliminate or reduce cyber threats.
  • Enables earlier detection of threats or processing errors and faster resolution.

Next step to certification?

You can arrange for an independent audit of your ISMS against the specifications of ISO27001 and, if your ISMS conforms, eventually achieve accredited certification. We publish a range of ISMS documentation tool kits and guides (such as Nine Steps to Success) to help you achieve this.
