Is ISO27001 important to your Start-Up?

Every organisation will face unique information security challenges, that is why ISO 27001 does not attempt to impose a generic security approach.

Instead, implementing ISO 27001 encourages you to put into place the appropriate processes and policies that support information security specifically for your business.

This is especially true for Start-Ups and SMEs, where resources are focused on sales and delivery. But if your business is compromised, no amount of sales will help you recover.


The boring stuff

ISO/EIC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001) is an internationally recognised Standard and comprehensive framework which lays out the basic building blocks for an Information Security Management System (ISMS).

The Standard was developed to help organisations of any size in any industry, protect data, systems, and processes in a systematic and cost-effective way. It details the the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an ISMS, with the objective of helping organisations improve the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information assets they hold.
