Cyber security is critical to business and involves the protection of IT systems and data from cyber threats such as computer-assisted fraud, espionage, sabotage, vandalism. Despite businesses increasing reliance on information, many information systems simply have not been designed to be secure.
The security that can be achieved through technical means is limited. Currently, the most effective solution to preventing cyber security attacks is the adoption of the information security management system standard, ISO/IEC 27001. ISO/IEC 27001 enables organizations to put in place the right people, processes, procedures and technology to protect networks and data from attack, theft and destruction.
Plus, by certifying to the standard you can demonstrates to customers and stakeholders that you take their cyber security seriously. And for cloud service providers, third party audits to ISO/IEC 27001 also demonstrate that you have the correct security controls in place.
