When a company becomes ISO 27001 certified, they demonstrate their commitment to quality and excellence while adhering to the strictest security standards in the world. In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of ISO certification and the benefits it offers businesses. We will also take a look at Lane’s journey to becoming ISO 27001 accredited and what that means for our valued customer base.
What Is ISO 27001 & Why Is It So Important for Organizations?
ISO 27001 certification is an internationally recognized security standard that provides a framework for managing information risks, safeguarding information assets while facilitating easier processes to manage, measure, and improve. As a framework of policies and procedures that include all legal, physical, and technical controls involved in an organization’s risk management process, ISO 27001 provides a holistic approach to security. The term “ISO” stands for International Organization of Standardization, and is responsible for creating, setting, and promoting information security standards. To date, ISO 27001 has published more than 22,600 standards and related documents and continues to do so.
So, how does becoming accredited for ISO 27001 contribute to better business practices? To start, ISO 27001 is the only auditable international standard that delineates the requirements of an information security management system (ISMS). ISMS refers to a set of policies, procedures, processes and systems that manage information security risks including cyber attacks, hacks, data leaks, or theft. Lane’s ISMS is proudly ISO 27001 certified, with our integrated messaging system, Passport, delivering the benefits associated with this comprehensive framework. These benefits include:
- Secure exchange of information
- Establishing a centrally managed framework
- Immediate response to evolving security threats
- Protects confidentiality, availability, and integrity of data
