What are some arguments in favor of ISMS rollout & certification according to ISO 27001?
In the course of digitalization companies save and process lots of confidential information and data every day. Particularly the company’s IT may thus become an attractive target for Internet criminals: This may lead to data abuse, IT failures or cyber espionage and entail serious legal and financial consequences. Therefore, the information systems involved should be effectively protected against external interferences and risks: The international standard ISO 27001 provides enterprises of all sizes and industries with a guideline for the introduction, implementation, maintenance and continuous improvement of an information security management system (ISMS).
The standard can be used to systematically optimize your company’s information security in a structured way, discover existing risks and establish effective measures to close security vulnerabilities. Here, the individual situation of your business serves as the basis for a customized security concept.
With a certification according to ISO 27001 you can objectively demonstrate that you meet the requirements regarding information security and that your IT processes are secure and reliable. This creates trust with clients, business partners and supervisory authorities and ensures competitive advantages. Furthermore, operators of critical infrastructures (CI) may use an ISO 27001 certificate to demonstrate that their IT systems, components and processes meet adequate organizational and technical requirements according to the state of the art. They can thus comply with the claim of the German IT security act’s claim for a minimum level of IT security.
