The International Organization for Standards (ISO) was founded on the belief that standards should be a roadmap to better business performance. ISO 27001 is a compliance framework designed to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and accessibility of information assets. ISO 27001 specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an IT security management system. It includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization. The requirements set out in ISO 27001 are generic, and are intended to apply to all organizations, regardless of type, size, or sector.
ISO 27001 compliance will reduce IT vulnerabilities and protect against threats to sensitive data. Furthermore, it will build trust and credibility within and outside of your organization, among employees, customers, partners, and stakeholders.

ISO 27001 certification enhances your value proposition and differentiates you from your competitors.
It is a great investment when incidents occur less frequently and you can reduce expenses to resolve them.
Data privacy and integrity is a top priority for most organizations, especially those that retain personal data.
The standards for the ISO-27001 framework were published by ISO in collaboration with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The umbrella term ISO 27001 can be thought of as ISO/IEC 27001. Certification to ISO-27001 is not mandatory, though many organizations implement framework policies, procedures, and systems to establish an effective security posture. ISO 27001 helps many types of organizations regulate and secure their digital assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details, or information entrusted to third parties.
The ISO 27001 certification process usually takes between three and twelve months. Performing a preliminary gap analysis of your current IT system is a good first step. Once certified, organizations should conduct regular audits. Your ISO auditor will audit your IT system annually to check operations and performance, documentation updates, risk management reviews, corrective actions, and resolution of nonconformities from the previous audit.
