What is ISO 27001 - Information Security Management Systems (ISMS)?
An ISMS provides a systematic approach for managing the information security of an organization. Information security encompasses certain broad policies that control and manage security risk levels across an organization. The goal of an ISMS is to minimize risk and ensure business continuity by proactively limiting the impact of a security breach. An ISMS typically addresses employee behavior and processes as well as data and technology. It can be targeted toward a particular type of data, such as customer data, or it can be implemented in a comprehensive way that becomes part of the company’s culture..
