What is ISO 27001 certification?

ISO 27001 is a certification issued by an accredited third party which attests to the compliance of a company’s information security management system (ISMS) with the requirements defined by the ISO 27001 standard.

It is an international standard that specifies the requirements necessary to set up, implement, monitor and improve an effective ISMS within an organisation.

ISO 27001 covers all aspects of IT security management such as:

  • Security policies and procedures
  • Risk management
  • Technical and physical checks
  • Personnel Management
  • Physical and environmental safety
  • Access control
  • Incident management
  • Operational continuity
  • Legal and regulatory compliance

Obtaining this certification demonstrates a company’s commitment to implementing and maintaining a comprehensive safety management system that complies with the most rigorous standards.

The acronym ISO/IEC 27001:2013

The reference standard for the ISO 27001 certification obtained by Secure Online Desktop is specifically ISO/IEC 27001:2013.

Let’s analyze what the various elements of this acronym mean:

  • ISO – Acronym for International Organization for Standardization, the international body that develops and publishes standards.
  • IEC – Acronym for International Electrotechnical Commission, an organization that deals with standardization for electronics and related technologies.
  • 27001 – Classification number that identifies the ISO standard relating to Information Security Management Systems (ISMS).
  • 2013 – Year of publication of the current version of the ISO 27001 standard, which replaced the previous 2005 version.

Therefore the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification obtained by Secure Online Desktop demonstrates compliance with the requirements defined in the 2013 edition of the ISO 27001 standard published jointly by ISO and IEC.

It is the most updated and complete international reference standard for setting up, implementing and managing an effective ISMS.
