What are the benefits of ISO 27001 Certification?
Information Security Systems developed under ISO 27001 are designed to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information by applying a risk management process. The adoption of these processes gives you, your employees, regulators and clients the confidence that your information security risks are known and adequately managed.
Eliminating all information security risk from your business is probably not achievable. The controls adopted should be proportional to the level of risk. One could implement very onerous controls in order to bring risk ratings down to a bare minimum only to find that we are no longer able to conduct business effectively. The key to it all is balance, and an awareness of what risks are out there.
Compass Assurance Services has experienced auditors with practical experience; we are able to work through the process, and the risk methodologies and controls you have applied to managing information security.
