Information is a valuable asset and crucial element that helps business entities make appropriate and informed decisions. The international standard ISO 27001:2013 is prepared to provide the necessary requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system.
The information security management system preserves the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information by applying a risk management process and gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed.
This International Standard also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks. The requirements set out in this International Standard are applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size or nature.
