Anyone heavily involved with the subject of IT security within a company and explicitly familiar with the standard operations of an ISMS will have surely come across the term ISO 27001. It comprises an international standard for information security which can be implemented in any type of organisation and business – DIN ISO/IEC 27001.
The standard outlines the requirements for the implementation, maintenance, documentation and ongoing improvement of an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The confidentiality, integrity and availability of information are at its core. This ensures that your data is optimally used and securely stored. The standard also ensures the availability of all systems related to company processes. The choice of suitable security mechanisms guarantees the protection of all values and value-added chains.
With DIN ISO/IEC 27001 certification, you can
ISO 27001 certification
Through certification of the existing Information Security Management System, your company shows that it complies with and implements information security requirements and measures for protecting data.
There are two fundamental types of certification – directly according to ISO 27001 and based on IT baseline protection. The requirements of both involve the existence of an Information Security Management System (ISMS). Along with identifying your company’s values and their documentation, potential security risks must be identified, assessed and monitored. If the standard is applied, a certification audit must be carried out by a certification body.
ISO 27001 certification can be carried out for the entire company as well as a particular area of application.
Further information about certification and endorsement of the standard can be found on the website of the German Federal Office for Information Technology Security (BSI).
ISO 27001 certification process
In order to certify an Information Security Management System according to ISO 27001, your company must undergo a multi-stage audit process. This is carried out by one or more independent certified auditors.
Company management is responsible for taking suitable measures to fulfil security objectives. Various standards, such as ISO 27001, provide a source of reference to help introduce an Information Security Management System.
The important thing is to integrate information security directly into the business processes and observe which information is relevant and needs to be protected.
