It isÂ based largely upon the previously adopted BS 7799 used commonly since 1995 for managing information security.
ISO 27001 provides the framework for a technology neutral, vendor-neutral management system that enables an organization to assure itself that its information security measures are effective. This includes the continued accessibility, confidentiality and integrity of its own information and that of its stakeholders as well as legal compliance.
Implementation of ISO 27001 is an ideal response to legal requirements and potential security threats such as:
- Vandalism / terrorism
- Viral attack
Whilst modern communication mediums mean that most ISMS systems are focused on ICT, ISO 27001 is equally applicable to other forms of information, such as paper records, images, and even conversations.
