ISO 27001 certification aligns commercial enterprises with the requirements for implementing, maintaining and continually improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS)
ISO 27001 Certification
ISO 27001 certification provides assurance that all potential security risks to data have been assessed and are being managed to minimise overall risk exposure.
For many organisations achieving ISO 27001 certification is a regulatory or contractual obligation, especially those who tender for NHS and government contracts. The goal of ISO 27001 is to use security techniques to provide an information security management framework of standards for how a modern organisation should manage their confidential information and data in order to protect their intellectual property and information assets for online security threats.
ISO 27001 works on a top-down, technology-neutral, risk management approach for the protection of Confidentiality, Data security, Integrity and Availability of information and to ensure a secure exchange of information assets for businesses. ISO 27001 draws coordination between all sections of an organisation and enhances management responsibility, conducts internal audits and undertakes corrective and preventive actions.
Evaluating and assessing risks to your data can help you put processes in place to suppress potential data breaches.
ISO 27001 requires ongoing audits & improvements to your ISMS

Here's something to think about
Since 2017 there has been a 14% (from 72% to 86%) rise in businesses experiencing phishing attacks. And that’s just in those organisations who report them!
In 2019, it was reported that 23.2 million hacking victims had “123456” set as their password. Something as simple as educating your workforce in how to set and update strong passwords could make a real difference.Get in touch

First, check that the certification has been issued by an accredited certification body. The International Accreditation Forum (IAF) maintains a list of members. Contact the certification body and ask them to confirm whether the organisation in question is certified. In some situations certification bodies do this through their website, whereas in others they’ll check that their client is happy to share this information with you first.
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard focusing on information security and the the protection of Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of information and information assets for businesses. It was developed to help organisations, of any size or any industry, to protect their information in a systematic and cost-effective way, through the adoption of an Information Security Management System (ISMS). ISO 27001 implementation is a smart move for forward thinking, modern businesses seeking to demonstrate good information and data management. Risk management is a key factor of ISO 27001 certification which inevitably helps an organisation to protect itself from unwanted cyber attacks and loss of data.
ISO 27001:2013 is the internationally recognised specification for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). A globally recognised standard for information security, ISO 27001 certification is acknowledged as a trusted standard within all industries.
Short answer: yes. In order to attain ISO 27001 certification, an organisation needs to carry out a detailed risk assessment of their infrastructure and data management. A number of the most common risks fall into the territory of cyber security and good data management. Cyber security and ISO 27001 go hand in hand in protecting customer data and key information. However, as with all robust cyber security provision, ISO27001 forms part of a larger cyber security posture.
