This white paper provides information on the ISO 27001 Certification Process. Implementing and maintaining an Information Security Program in the 21st Century is a business imperative. An increasingly popular way that companies are implementing a holistic and market-recognizable information security program is by adopting the ISO 27001 framework and implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS).
Not only does ISO 27001 and the related series of supporting standards (e.g. ISO 27002, ISO 27005) provide a comprehensive security framework and implementation guidance on ‘how’ to establish the program and adopt best practices, but the program can also be certified, which provides companies with a way to market and ‘tell their security story’ to customers, partners, and prospects.
Further, as ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized standard for information security, the ISO 27001 certification process provides companies with a way to communicate their security program globally.
