What Is ISO 27001 Certification?
The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) has, over the years, introduced numerous standards to promote best practices across various sectors.
ISO 27001 is a pivotal standard focusing on information security management systems (ISMS). It serves as a structured framework for businesses to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their information assets.
Achieving ISO 27001 certification isn’t merely about ticking off a checklist. It signifies a company’s holistic approach to information security, from risk management to operational procedures, indicating that the organisation takes its data protection responsibilities seriously.
What Are the Domains of ISO 27001?
ISO 27001’s strength lies in its broad framework, embodied by Annex A, which details 114 controls distributed across 14 domains. These domains encompass every facet of information security, from overarching policies and human resource considerations to technical measures like access control and cryptography.
Together, they provide a comprehensive guide for organisations, ensuring that each aspect of their information security management system is robust and adaptive in addressing the ever-evolving cyber landscape.
ISO 27001’s framework is designed to provide a holistic approach to information security, and at its core are six pivotal security areas: organisational structure, policy and risk management, asset classification and control, human resource security, physical and environmental security, and communications and operations management.
These areas interlink to offer a comprehensive, layered protection mechanism, ensuring that every aspect of an organisation, from its personnel to its processes, is aligned in safeguarding its information assets.
