ISO 27001:2013

What is ISO 27001:2013 and why is it good for your organization?

The International Standards Organization (ISO) 27001:2013 is the specification for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The objective of the standard itself is to provide requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continuously improving an ISMS. An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. It includes people, processes, and IT systems by applying a risk management process. An organization looking to become ISO 27001:2013 needs to make a strategic decision on its adoption, because the design and implementation of your ISMS is influenced by the organization’s needs and objectives, security requirements, organizational processes used, and size and structure of the organization. The main benefit of ISO 27001:2013 is that it gives you a reputation for being a safe and secure partner. Learn more about Security Compliance →


ISO 27001:2013 certification offers an internally recognized framework for protecting your information security. Becoming certified provides substantial benefit and security risk reduction for your organization:

What is ISMS?

The Quality Management System, which is often referred to as a QMS, is a collection of business processes focused on consistently meeting customer requirements and enhancing their satisfaction. It is aligned with an organization’s purpose and strategic direction. This collection of documentation defines the set of internal rules that will govern how your company creates and delivers your product or service to your customers. The QMS is tailored to the needs of your company and the product or service you provide. The ISO 9001:2015 standard provides a set of guidelines to help make sure that you do not miss any important elements that a QMS needs to be successful.

Our Managed Security Services includes:

Data vandalism
Errors related to integration with unprotected partnerships or warehouses
Internal data theft
Loss of data due to misuse or malfeasance
Misuse of information
Network breaches through third-party connections
Personal data breaches
State-sanctioned cyber attacks
Terrorists attacks
Viral attacks
Think of the security protocol as a mindset. ISO 27001:2013 doesn’t give you a step-by-step guide to protecting assets. Instead, it provides you with a framework that can be applied to any threats or risks you face. The framework can be tough to implement at first; however, proper training will keep your organization safe for long periods of time.
