Information is the lifeblood of most contemporary organisations. It provides intelligence, commercial advantage, and future plans that drive success. Most organisations store these highly prized information assets electronically. Therefore, protection of these assets from either deliberate or accidental loss, compromise or destruction is increasingly important.

ISO 27001 is a risk-based compliance framework designed to help organisations effectively manage information security.

Having an international standard for information security allows a common framework for managing security across business and across borders. With an evermore connected world, the security of information is increasing in importance.

Data and information needs to be safe, secure, and accessible. The security of information is important for personal privacy, confidentiality of financial and health information and the smooth functioning of systems and supply chains that we rely on in today’s interconnected world.

ISO 27001 provides the framework for organisatons and security teams to effectively manage risk, select security controls, and most importantly, a process to achieve, maintain and prove compliance with the standard. Adoption of ISO 27001 provides real credibility that we understand security and take security seriously.

ISO 27001 is made up of a number of short clauses, and a much longer Annex listing 14 security domains and 114 controls. The most important of the short clauses relate to:
  • The organisational context and stakeholders
  • Information security leadership and high-level support
  • Planning of an Information Security Management System (ISMS), including risk assessment; risk treatment
  • Supporting an ISMS
  • Making an ISMS operational
  • Reviewing the system’s performance
  • Adopting an approach for corrective actions
Based on the risk profile of the organisation, controls may be selected to manage identified risks. Within the Annex, the 114 listed controls are broken down into 14 key domains which are listed below:
  1. Information security policies
  2. Organisation of information security
  3. Human resource security
  4. Asset management
  5. Access control
  6. Cryptography
  7. Physical and environmental security
  8. Operations security
  9. Communications security
  10. System acquisition, development and maintenance
  11. Supplier relationships
  12. Information security incident management
  13. Information security aspects of business continuity management
  14. Compliance
