ISO/IEC 27001 for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs)

Information is a valuable asset to small and large businesses alike, and ISO/IEC 27001 brings equal benefits to organisations of all sizes. The question of 'What is information security?' will lead you to information security management. Information security management gives SMEs the confidence to meet expectations – from legal to new business opportunities – giving you a solid and secure base to grow from.


Shaping ISO/IEC 27001 for SMEs

Small businesses that implement ISO/IEC 27001 can achieve the same levels of success as larger companies. We know that you may have tighter budgets and less time to manage the information security risks you face. And we know that those risks are as unique as the information you want to secure. That’s why we provide packages that can be customized to include only the services and products you need – removing the unnecessary cost and complexity of achieving ISO/IEC 27001. We can help you secure all your information, regardless of format, to minimize security breaches and avoid fines.

You’ll see how ISO/IEC 27001 certification keeps you compliant with world-class information security standards as well as legislation. And you’ll quickly discover that keeping your information secure not only safeguards your reputation, it also helps you compete with bigger brands.
