How ISO 27001 can Help you Safeguard your Information Assets

With the recent high profile cyber attacks on government owned information technology systems (Singapore’s SingHealth Hack and Hong Kong’s Health Department Cyber Attack), managing and securing information technology assets has never been more important.

The digitization of ‘everything’ continues to shape and change the world. At the same time, it is becoming more difficult to protect IT systems from threats and vulnerability. Breaches in information security can allow vital information to be accessed, stolen, corrupted, lost or held at ransom.

ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard that can help you organization adopt best practices to protect your client’s and your organization’s data. Achieving certification helps to enhance your organization’s reputation and trust, and prevent catastrophic security breaches that will result in legal liability.

With ISO 27001, the organization is assessed using a globally recognized standard for the security of information and IT environments. It describes the requirements of implementation as well as the documentation of an ISMS. Security risks can be minimized, and IT security procedures that are established can contribute to the long-term optimization of the quality of your systems.
