Information security management is a crucial part of any organization. Without it, you risk lost revenue and damaged customer trust. ISO 27001 easily integrates into your existing management systems to help you achieve information security. Any organization of any size can benefit from this standard.
ISO 27001 establishes an internationally trusted standard for information security management. Meeting ISO 27001 requirements gives you an advantage by improving your day-to-day operations and demonstrating your commitment to information security. Implementing these best practices for ISO 27001 compliance protects critical data and demonstrates high-quality standards to consumers.
What Is ISO 27001?
ISO/IEC 27001:2022 is a robust information security management system (ISMS) standard applicable to any business in any sector. It addresses the people, processes, and technologies that process protected information/data. Its companion document, ISO 27002:2022, provides guidance on how to implement security controls.
Any business in any industry can apply the ISO 27001 requirements to better protect critical data. ISO 27001 applies a comprehensive set of security controls (which has been updated since the 2013 version), Annex A, that includes information security best practices, control areas, and control objectives. It mitigates threats to information confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) to ensure business security and continuity. The new version of the standard includes a crosswalk from the old controls to the new controls to assist in transition. Some companies may need to seek SOC 2 compliance instead of ISO 27001.
What is SOC 2?
SOC 2 is the standard developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and is based on Cybersecurity Trust Services Criteria: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. SOC is most applicable to Software Organizations, SAAS companies, Cloud Hosting Services, Healthcare Technology, and more. To learn more about SOC 2 compliance, visit our SOC 2 page.
