Security Management Systems are a framework of policies and controls that manage security and risks systematically and across your entire enterprise—information security. These security controls can follow common security standards or be more focused on your industry.
ISO/IEC 27001 specifies requirements for the establishment, implementation, monitoring and review, maintenance and improvement of an overall management and control framework – for managing an organization’s information security risks. The standard covers all types of organizations (e.g. commercial enterprises, government agencies and non-profit organizations) and all sizes from small businesses to huge multinationals. By receiving certification for ISO 27001 you show your clients that bringing information security under management control is a prerequisite for sustainable, directed and continuous improvement.
