We’re working towards our ISO 27001 accreditation. So what is it? ilicomm Technology Solutions

ISO/IEC 27001 is the best-known standard in the family providing requirements for an information security management system (ISMS).

With continued commitment to our customers and providing the best possible service, we have embarked on becoming ISO 27001 accredited, which helps organisations, like ours, keep information assets secure. Using this family of standards will help your organisation manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted to you by third parties.

 

What is an ISMS?

An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. It includes people, processes and IT systems by applying a risk management process. It can help small, medium and large businesses in any sector keep information assets secure.

Preview ISO/IEC 27001:2013

You can preview the freely available sections of ISO 27001:2013 on the ISO.org website here: Online Browsing Platform. To purchase the standard please visit the ISO Store.

Certification to ISO/IEC 27001

Like other ISO management system standards, certification to ISO/IEC 27001 is possible but not obligatory. Some organisations choose to implement the standard in order to benefit from the best practice it contains while others decide they also want to get certified to reassure customers and clients that its recommendations have been followed. ISO does not perform certification.

What Next

We have recently had an audit and we are making good progress, expecting to become fully ISO 27001 accredited later this year. We’ll be sure to keep you posted when we do, but please check back for any updates.
