Companies should seek ISO-27001 Certification in order to comply with Data Protection Laws

The ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards includes the standards put forth by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to help organizations keep their information secure.

ISO/IEC 27001:2013, often just referred to as ISO 27001, establishes requirements related to information security management systems (ISMS), a systematic approach to keeping information assets secure that can include processes, IT systems and personnel and involves employing a risk management process. ISO 27001 also includes guidelines for evaluating and addressing information security risks.

The standard provides guidelines for creating, implementing, maintaining and refining an ISMS that keeps information accessible to the right people while also preserving confidentiality and Integrity. It also helps to ensure legal compliance with requirements such as the Data Protection Act.

It can help organizations with their cyber security strategy, IT governance and asset protection. It also helps them respond to incidents, mitigate threats, reduce downtime and minimize loss. It aids entities in establishing a system to protect their information from security threats such as cyber crime, viral attack, vandalism, terrorism, misuse of information, theft and fire.

By working with an accredited certification body such as NQA, organizations can provide assurance to customers that they have an effective ISMS in place.
