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).

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.
