How it Works

Organizations and their information systems are at risk of security threats from sources including: fraud; espionage; sabotage; and natural causes. At an exciting time of global business opportunities, organizations must address these risks through a systematic approach.

The ISO 27001 Information Security Management Systems Standard enables organizations to align with global best-practice for information security management. It offers organizations a robust and practical framework to assist with the improvement of information security, focusing on the preservation of confidentiality, integrity and availability of information.

Following the best practice business operating framework, ISO 27001 applies a risk-based approach to the management of information security. This structure includes:

Context of the Organization

To determine the scope of the information security management system, organizations must understand and appreciate the internal and external needs and expectations of stakeholders.


At the center of the management systems' success is the commitment and visible support from all levels of management, particularly from those in senior leadership positions.


A systematic approach must be incorporated into risk assessments, to enable appropriate and efficient controls to be implemented and enable effective implementation.


Imperitive to success is the commitment and allocation of resources to support implementation, maintenance and ongoing communications.


Implement operational controls that support the success of the management systems' objectives.

Performance Evaluation

Establishing key performance indicators driven by the needs and objectives of the management system and outcome desired are critical to ensuring a system is measured, improving and delivering.


Organizations can expect improved financial performances by finding opportunities to improve processes. These processes should focus on the preservation of confidentiality, availability and integrity of information assets as well as improving consumer confidence and trust in the brand.
