Although ISO27001 certification is not a legal, regulatory or compliance obligation, it is often a prerequisite to public and private sector tender processes, may be an essential condition for new business partnerships and is a well-respected benchmark that demonstrates your information security maturity. As a result, many companies pursue ISO 27001 certification to evidence they are operating their internal information security practices to a high standard.
Unlike many regulatory obligations or compliance standards, ISO27001 does not mandate specific information security controls. Rather the standard requires organisations to establish an information security management system (ISMS) that allows them to identify, assess and address risks to information assets. Many organisations seek out the services of a trusted advisor to help them establish, maintain and improve their ISMS.
