ISO 27001

ISO 27001 specifies requirements for the establishment, implementation, monitoring and review, maintenance and improvement of a management system - an overall management and control framework - for managing an organization's information security risks. It does not mandate specific information security controls but stops at the level of the management system.
The standard covers all types of organizations (e.g. commercial enterprises, government agencies and non-profit organizations) and all sizes from micro-businesses to huge multinationals. This is clearly a very wide brief.
Bringing information security under management control is a prerequisite for sustainable, directed and continuous improvement. An ISO 27001 ISMS therefore incorporates several Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycles. The ISO 27001 standards provide guidance on designing, implementing and auditing Information Security Management Systems that protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information content, systems and processes on which we all depend.
ISO 27001 "is intended to be suitable for several different types of use, including:
  • Use within organisations to formulate security requirements and objectives;
  • Use within organisations as a way to ensure that security risks are cost-effectively managed;
  • Use within organisations to ensure compliance with laws and regulations;
  • Use within an organisation as a process framework for the implementation and management of controls to ensure that the specific security objectives of an organisation are met;
  • The definition of new information security management processes;
  • Identification and clarification of existing information security management processes;
  • Use by the management of organisations to determine the status of information security management activities;
  • Use by the internal and external auditors of organisations to demonstrate the information security policies, directives and standards adopted by an organisation and determine the degree of compliance with those policies, directives and standards;
  • Use by organisations to provide relevant information about information security policies, directives, standards and procedures to trading partners and other organisations that they interact with for operational or commercial reasons;
  • Implementation of a business enabling information security; and
  • Use by organisations to provide relevant information about information security to customers."
