Organizations collect, store and process vast amounts of data today. Employee information, supplier information, customer information, intellectual property, financial records, communication records—all common types of data that ordinarily exist in almost every business.
When organizations fail to secure or protect this data, it exposes them to a host of business risks like breaches, financial losses, reputational damage or even potential fines and prosecution.
To overcome this challenge, the International Standard Organization (ISO) created a comprehensive set of guidelines called the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (a.k.a. ISO 27001). These standards help global businesses establish, organize, implement, monitor and maintain their information security management systems.
