In a world where technology weaves into every facet of businesses, safeguarding data and systems becomes vital. Cyber threats, always evolving, pose significant challenges, requiring companies to stay ahead in securing their digital infrastructures.
Regulations, such as the EU’s GDPR and the EU Network and Information Security directive, have set the bar high for compliance, emphasizing the importance of stringent cybersecurity measures. Turning to standards like ISO 27001, ISO 27017, and ISO 27701 provides a dependable blueprint for firms to elevate their cyber defenses. By collaborating with industry experts from IIOA members, organisations can harness specialised cybersecurity solutions, arming themselves against the array of digital dangers they face daily.
Optimal information security extends beyond mere incident management; it necessitates a proactive approach to understanding and fortifying systems against threats. As cyberattacks grow in sophistication, causing significant financial and reputational damages, organizations must see cybersecurity not just as an IT concern but as a cornerstone of business resilience. Certification and assurance services from IIOA members play a pivotal role in equipping organisations to respond effectively to security incidents and maintain business continuity, reinforcing the value of data integrity and resilience in a digital age.
Information Security Management ISO/IEC 27001
IT and data are at the very heart of so many organisations. The implementation of an information security management system helps manage the risks associated with this vital and valuable asset. ISO describe how ISO 27001 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented Information Security Management System within the context of the organization’s overall business risks.
Security Management ISO 28000
With so many goods and services brought to market at the end of often complex supply chains – frequently on an international basis – maintaining the security of the supply chain is imperative for a huge range of organisations. Certification to ISO 28000 acts as a corner-stone of managing the inherent risks in the supply chain by providing a structured approach to understanding, measuring and managing these risks. ISO give further explanation of ISO 28000.
