What is the ISO 27001 standard and certification?

ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard for information security management. It defines requirements for protection, risk management, and business continuity for information security. Its implementation process is complex and time-consuming. It requires adapting internal policies and procedures to meet the requirements outlined in the standard. This includes, among other things:

  • developing an information security policy,
  • identifying and evaluating risks,
  • implementing appropriate security control tools,
  • training of employees,
  • monitoring and auditing.

Implementation, which usually takes a few to several months, requires the involvement of management and all employees. It takes place in two stages. First, a documentation audit verifies documents related to information security management. Next, the management system operation audit follows, assessing the actual practice and effectiveness of the activities.

An independent party, the so-called certification unit, carries out certification. It has special authority to assess an organization’s compliance with the requirements outlined in ISO 27001. Upon completing the audit, the organization receives a certificate confirming compliance with the standard.

ISO 27001 certification is not granted permanently. Once a year, the company that receives it undergoes a special external audit, and after three years, it is necessary to renew the certificate. These measures are designed to verify that the requirements of the ISO 27001 standard are being met continuously and that there are no deficiencies in the declared procedures.

What are the benefits of working with a manufacturer that is ISO 27001 certified?

Working with a manufacturer that is ISO 27001 certified will result in additional benefits for your company. They will not only improve cooperation, but also guarantee objective compliance of processes with the highest standards.

Data security

ISO 27001 focuses on information security management. It specifies requirements for protecting information, identifying threats, managing risks, and implementing appropriate security measures. As a result, when you work with a vendor that adheres to these standards, you can rest assured that your data, regardless of its form (digital, paper, or in the cloud), is adequately protected at every level of cooperation.

High-quality services

First, the standard requires identifying and documenting procedures related to information management. Second, it obliges the manufacturer to follow a structured approach to their services. Thus, the use of meticulous procedures and well-thought-out processes gives you confidence that the quality of a certified manufacturer’s services will be significantly higher.
