ISO 27001 Prevents Cyberattacks – ISMS for Data Security

ISO 27001 Prevents Cyberattacks

ISO 27001 Prevents Cyberattacks

Implementing an ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) prevents cyberattacks.  The Ponemon Institute in a 2017 study found that a typical firm experiences 130 security breaches each year.  Mitigating these breaches requires more than advanced IT practices, it requires a dedicated management system.  ISO/IEC 27001 is such a system.  It includes processes for human resource security, physical and environmental security, and dealing with information security incidents.

The Real Cost of Cyberattacks

The Cost of Malicious Cyber Activity to the U.S. Economy , released by the Whitehouse in February of 2018, estimates that such attacks cost the U.S. economy between $57 billion and $109 billion in 2016.  Their real impact however, can inflict damage that is difficult to assess or quantify in dollar amounts.  While most incidents are kept out of the public eye, a few attacks like the Sony Pictures in November of 2014 do make headlines.

How ISO 27001 Prevents Cyberattacks

Because ISO 27001 is configurable to your company’s requirements it is an effective means of organizing data security.  This is because it includes a complete process and involvement of all stakeholders in monitoring and preventing cyberattacks.  ISO 27001 also includes training to maintain a high state of awareness for all employees.

The security of data is not only of great concern to your organization.  It is of interest to your customers.  ISO 27001 certification shows that your company is a responsible partner and maintains an active interest in monitoring and mitigating cyberattacks.
