Significance of Cybersecurity Certifications
Information, like other important business resources, brings added value to the organization and therefore it should be properly protected. However, in today’s technology-dependent world, the risk of data security breaches is increasing. One incident can destroy a company’s image, affect business continuity and income, and endanger the customer base.
Large organizations have long been the targets of regular attacks, but SMEs are equally at risk. This results in stricter regulation and high expectations of data security from stakeholders. The organization must demonstrate to customers, consumers, shareholders, authorities and society that the company’s information assets are confidential, intact and available to those who need them. That’s why more and more organizations are seeing the value of a structured approach to information security, such as ISO 27001 and GDPR certifications for managing the information security of control and management systems.
ISO 27001 – Information security management system certification
ISO 27001 is an international standard that defines the requirements of an information security management system. Most information security standards and models are based on the ISO 27001 standard. By implementing ISO 27001, you can apply rigorous information security methodologies, reducing risks and safeguarding against security breaches.
