Article summary

ISO/IEC 27001 is a comprehensive standard that defines the requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). It provides a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information, ensuring it remains secure. It helps organizations establish a management framework to initiate, implement, monitor, review, and improve their information security.

The standard emphasizes the protection of three key aspects of information:

  • Confidentiality: Ensuring that information is accessible only to those authorized to access it.
  • Integrity: Safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods.
