ISO 27000 Series Certification

The final version of ISO 27001 was published in October 2005 to a great fanfare. It should be noted, however, that this is in fact only the first of a series of standards to support information security. Having stated this, it may well be the most important, at least from a ‘top down’ perspective, as it defines the information security management system.

The benefits of implementing a systematic and effective OHSAS management system include the following

  • A valuable framework for resolving security issues
  • Enhancement of the credibility of any company
  • Risk management in security implementation
  • Enhancement of security awareness in an organization
  • Assists in the developing best practices
  • Reduces possibility of fraud or any other risk
  • Getting new business opportunities
