Managing a business can be hard work. So much goes on behind the scenes, from accounting, to business meetings to attracting new customers, that it can sometimes be a challenge even smoothly and accurately securing all important, confidential information in a central database. Further, as an additional challenge, with technology changing so fast, there are now hackers and spoof emails and malware all of which seek to undermine your information security. Managing the information security of your business, and in the process protecting your reputation and client information, can seem overwhelming at times. For this very reason, the information security management system ISO 27001:2013 exists, to help business’ maintain their information security in an clear, easy-to-follow manner, in which they are able to draw from guidelines that have long been demonstrated to be effective and efficient.

ISO 27001:2013 is an information security standard developed by The International Organization for Standardization, in order to provide business’ of all shapes and sizes with a framework that they can utilise to maximise efficiency, reduce downtime, and ensure that there is a high standard of operational principles for business’ across a sector. This helps standardise the level of performance and output across relevant organisations in both a local and global capacity, and makes running a business easier, as you have the peace of mind knowing that what you have implemented has been proven to be successful, easy to use, and applicable to business’ across the globe.

The ISO 27001 Standards help both specialised Information Technology companies, and IT departments within generalised business’, streamline performance and minimise disruptions, by providing them with an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS) that they can tailor to the specific information security needs of their business. This helps to mitigate information security threats to business operations, identify inefficient, slow-paced networking systems and offer streamlining suggestions, and maximise business performance by providing an internationally recognised security management system that ensures all confidential business, employee and client information is secured.

The ISO 27001 standard was most recently updated in 2013, to ensure that it is in-line with evolving information security developments, and it achieves its goals in a number of ways, including creating, applying, running, fault-checking, sustaining and continually improving the internal ISMS. Its implementation also provides companies with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they are complying with local, state and federal regulations, contractual obligations and laws.

Anitech Group can help your business become a market leader

ISO 27001:2013 sets the standards that business’ should meet in order to become market leaders, and Anitech Group’s safety systems consultants provide a personalised approach when helping you implement this standard. This approach assesses the specific requirements of your business in a three-step approach, from a pre-installation, implementation and reviewal and evaluation process. Specifically, it looks at gauging the scope and particulars of your business and how ISO 27001 can be best tailored to it, assessing existing business information security systems and conducting a risk assessment to ascertain what works and what doesn’t, followed by the implementation of ISO 27001 within your business. This is then followed by an auditing process, where it is determined whether the business is successfully adhering to the processes and guidelines of the ISO Standards, and what additional measures can be implemented to keep information security systems as safe as possible. After the successful implementation of the previous measures the business is then ISO Certified, to formally acknowledge that it meets internationally recognised industry standards.
