How ISO 27001 can help protect your organisation

There’s a reason ISO 27001 is the go-to standard for information security. It details best practices for staying secure, covering the way you manage people, processes and technology.

Certifying to ISO 27001 demonstrates that your organisation’s practices are up to scratch, and although it obviously doesn’t eradicate the risk of data breaches, it goes a long way to keeping you secure. If you do suffer a breach, you can use your certification to prove to regulators that you were doing everything in your power to prevent one. You’ll therefore face much lighter enforcement action or avoid being disciplined altogether.

With the threat of cyber crime growing rapidly, and the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) introducing strict penalties for data breaches, it’s essential that you and your organisation commit to ISO 27001. Many of the Standard’s requirements are aligned with the GDPR, so learning about ISO 27001 will help you understand the practicalities of the Regulation.

ISO 27001 training

Anyone who wants to get the most out of ISO 27001 should enrol on a dedicated training course. If you’re relatively new to the Standard, consider our ISO27001 Certified ISMS Foundation Online course.

Developed by ISO 27001 experts Alan Calder and Steve Watkins, this one-day interactive Live Online course explains the benefits of ISO 27001 and provides a complete introduction to the key elements required to achieve compliance.

An experienced information security professional will use a combination of formal training, practical exercises and relevant case studies to help you:

  • Identify the risks associated with cyber crime for an individual and an organisation;
  • Understand the benefits of ISO 27001 best practice and certification; and
