ISO 27001 is internationale standaard – In Nederland is het vastgesteld als NEN norm NEN-ISO/IEC 27001:2005 – voor het inrichten van informatiebeveiliging.

Deze internationale norm is van toepassing op alle typen organisaties (bijvoorbeeld commerciële ondernemingen, overheidsinstanties, non-profitorganisaties). De norm specificeert eisen voor het vaststellen, implementeren, uitvoeren, controleren, beoordelen, bijhouden en verbeteren van een gedocumenteerd Information Security Management System (ISMS) in het kader van de algemene bedrijfsrisico’s voor de organisatie.

This offers a practice guideline with measures (controls) and recommendations for managing information security. Twelve monitoring reports address the security risks and contingency plans of the company, its guidelines and compliance specifications, the organisational and personnel circumstances, the technical infrastructure and the IT processes. Core topics are: network security, access protection and access control, monitoring of external access and secure exchange of data.

Certification: tested information security

Companies and organisations that demonstrate that their ISMS meet the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001 can have their ISMS certified by an accredited centre. To date, the certificate has been issued more than 7,000 times worldwide and around 150 times in Germany.
Companies with this certification gain competitive advantages through:

Higher quality of information, processes and internal coordination – using security standards implemented in compliance with regulations
Enhanced trust among customers and business partners – through the monitoring and recording of protected information and its exchange
Access, as a supplier, to public procurement markets – fulfilling a basic requirement for tendering for contracts from public authorities
