Organizations face many challenges in today’s “online” world. The increase in security incidents resulting from online hackers, disgruntled employees, and the simple and accidental mishandling of information can - very quickly - damage a company’s reputation, productivity and financial stability.
As a result, additional pieces of regulation and more statutory requirements are emerging; forcing companies to comply and seriously consider risk management. Certification of your management system helps to demonstrate that your system has been independently assessed by experts, and publicly shows your commitment to IT Security and ICT Governance.
International Standards & Frameworks
Standards such as ISO/IEC 27001 along with other frameworks and management system standards like COBIT, ISO 9001, ITIL and ISO/IEC 20000, can assist organizations in the development of appropriate governance. This may also enable their compliance with statutes and regulatory requirements, without “recreating” the wheel or duplicating existing and effective controls.
