What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is the international standard for an information security management system (ISMS). Achieving certification to ISO 27001 indicates that your ISMS has been established and audited against international best practice. It is aligned with information security best practices and will help your organisation to manage your information security by addressing people, processes, and technology. The standard focuses on the information security threats which may be posed by people, processes and technology and aims to protect your information assets. The aim of the standard is to protect your organisation and its information assets by establishing robust policies/procedures and the technical controls required to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.

Why should it be considered?
In 2021, 39% of UK businesses identified a cyber-attack. The most common threat vector was phishing attempts (83%). Of the 39% around 1 in 5 identified a more sophisticated attack type such as a denial of service, malware or ransomware attack. 31% of businesses and 26% of charities estimate they were attacked at least once a week. One in five businesses (20%) and charities (19%) say they experienced a negative outcome as a direct consequence of a cyber-attack, while one third of businesses (35%) and almost four in ten charities (38%) experienced at least one negative impact.

The information security standard does not only focus on Information Technology but focuses on every part of your organisation which is involved in processing information. Implementation means that your organisation will carry out a risk-based review of your current information security controls, identify the threats and vulnerabilities that may exist and build a management system to reduce or eliminate these threats or vulnerabilities.
What impact will it have?
Certification to ISO27001 is fast becoming the norm, not only in the IT sector but across a wide range of industry sectors. Certification to the standard is fast becoming a mandatory element in tender selection criteria, meaning that not having certification can often act as barrier to trade. Customers are increasingly using this standard to gain an assurance that their supply chain have adequate information security controls in place.
Implementing ISO 27001 allows your organisation to continuously adapt to the changing business environment and the evolving threat landscape. The focus within the standard of continual improvement, monitoring, auditing, and correcting ensures that controls are constantly updated and work effectively.
Best Practice approach:
ISO 27001 embeds best practice approaches within your organisation as it takes a holistic view of identifying all types of information including digital, personal, company etc as well as assessing threats from cyber, poorly trained/unaware staff and ineffective processes and producers which need to be improved. Adopting the standard also helps to embed information security firmly within the organisational culture.
