WHAT IS AN ISO 27001 AUDIT?
ISO 27001 is the only internationally-accepted standard for governing an organization’s information security management system (ISMS). The ISMS preserves the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information by applying a risk management process and gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed. The ISO 27001 standard tells organizations how to create and run an effective information security program through policies and procedures and associated legal, physical, and technical controls supporting an organization’s information risk management processes. It’s vital that the ISMS is integrated with the organization’s processes and overall management structure, and that information security is considered in the design of processes, information systems, and controls.
