ISO 27001:2013 (ISMS)

Information Security Management Systems 

ISO 27001, the Information Security Management System (ISMS) standard, is a publication by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Implementing ISO 27001 is crucial for reducing security risks associated with organizations' informational assets. This standard provides controls, objectives, and a framework to protect these assets, establishing the benchmark for handling Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability through effective ISMS audits.
