Information security management

Data is one of your business’s most valuable assets. Today’s news is full of reports of companies failing to protect their data — from laptops left on trains to high-profile companies having customers’ credit card data stolen by hackers.

Fortunately, among all the potential complexity of information security, there are some pragmatic steps you can take to minimise risk and start your business on the path to a robust Information Security Management System (ISMS).

Benefits of implementing an information secureity management system (ISMS)

Cybercrime is on the rise across the globe. Phishing scams and data breaches have become a common occurrence and a significant threat to companies. As we all spend increasingly more time online, utilising more software and apps, cybercriminals have more opportunity to strike than ever before.

A robust ISMS is the strongest line of defence to protect your business.


An ISMS protects all your information no matter the form. It could be digital, paper-based or in the vast space of the Cloud.


Companies with a strong ISMS become significantly more resilient to attack from cybercriminals. Cyber resilience helps you protect your organisation against cyber risks, defend against and limit the severity of attacks while ensuring your company’s survival in the face of an attack.


Cybercrime is continually evolving, and so your ISMS must also adapt and evolve too. An ISMS adapts to changes both inside and outside the organisation, keeping risks at bay.


An ISMS ensures all information is held securely within a central framework and can be managed all from one place.


Your ISMS will include a risk assessment and analysis approach. This enables your organisation to reduce costs that would otherwise be spent on random security layering and add ons. An ISMS is a complete information security solution.


A secure set of policies, procedures, technical and physical controls help your business to protect the confidentiality, availability and integrity of your information at all times.


True security for a business is possible when everyone in the organisation knows the risks and controls. An ISMS involves all departments and personnel, creating a culture of information security within the organisation.


One of the biggest threats to modern-day business is poorly informed and trained staff. An ISMS puts practices and controls into place that educate employees on risks and best practices. The result is a stronger, more secure organisation all across the board.

FAQ: Information security management consultancy

Our consultants have over 20 years of IT and cyber security experience and have the following certifications:

  • ISO27001 Lead Auditor

There are no absolutes with Information Security. Even the most extensive and robust Information Security approaches can’t prevent all Information Security incidents or cyber attacks. A well-managed security approach will lower the risk of an incident occurring and minimise the impact if it does occur.

In short, no. Using a framework to ensure best practices and meet a commonly shared set of requirements is a good idea to ensure good Information Security practice. And the ISO27001 framework is a good place to start, but you don’t need to be audited and certified.

Secure doesn’t mean certified, and certified doesn’t mean secure!

Being certified, however, does mean external validation that you are following a well-known standard and provides an easily demonstrable capability to potential customers, owners, trustees and investors.
