What is ISO 27001:2013?
ISO 27001:2013 is an internationally recognised information security standard set by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). The standard outlines specific requirements for organisations to establish, maintain and continually improve their information security management systems (ISMS). An ISMS combines processes and policies to help you identify, manage, and protect sensitive corporate data and information against risks to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
While ISO 27001:2013 is not a legal requirement, it is considered the benchmark for maintaining customer and stakeholder confidentiality. ISO 27001:2013 helps businesses of all shapes and sizes safeguard their information in a methodical and efficient way by adopting an ISMS.
Why does ISO 27001:2013 matter?
The threat of a cyberattack is a real and rapidly growing concern for businesses. Meanwhile, the number of laws, regulations and information security requirements for businesses is ever-increasing.
ISO 27001:2013 provides a comprehensive framework for companies to securely manage their people, processes, and technology. By offering standardised requirements for data protection, businesses can effectively manage information security risks, understand regulations and legislation, and protect their brand reputation.
ISO 27001:2013 employs a risk-based approach to information security. The complete standard offers a vast range of controls for organisations to create a comprehensive approach to information security. Organisations must identify information security risks relevant to their business and industry and select the appropriate controls to address them.
How does Data Zoo’s ISO 27001:2013 certification benefit my business?
A data breach can impact many parts of your supply chain, bringing your operations to a halt. This can cause significant downtime, costing your business money and impacting customer retention. It is essential to select the right partners for your business. A solution provider that is not ISO 27001:2013 certified and unable to demonstrate adequate controls and standards could expose your business and customers to potential threats.
On the other hand, when you partner with a solution provider, such as Data Zoo, that holds ISO 27001:2013 certification, you gain the peace of mind that comes with knowing they have implemented a robust ISMS and demonstrated a commitment to security and compliance. Moreover, the ISO 27001:2013 certification is a testament to the solution provider's dedication to ensuring the protection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and compliance with various regulations such as GDPR, KYC, and AML.
Data Zoo has been ISO27001:2013 certified by an independent third party. We strongly believe compliance is not a one-off process but rather an ongoing activity. Data Zoo's information security and compliance framework are reviewed and adapted periodically to keep up with the speed of changing regulatory requirements.
