The importance of Cyber Security

Cybercrime accounts for more than 50% of all crimes in the UK. Every day, businesses are brought to a halt by an ever-evolving range of cyber security attacks such as DOS attacks, phishing scams and hacking.

Not only can a cyber security attack have a financial impact on your business, it can also damage your reputation and affect your customers’ trust.

So why take the risk? Make sure that your employees, processes and technology are all aligned to give your business the best possible chance of avoiding such incidents.

How ISO Certification Can Help with Cyber Security

The government’s Cyber Essentials scheme sets the minimum acceptable standard for good practice. ISO certifications go further and demonstrate that cyber security is at the heart of your organisation, providing greater security and inspiring higher levels of confidence.

ISO certification enables your business to:

 

  • Minimise the risk of cyber attacks

  • Limit damage done in the event of a cyber attack

  • Ensure business continuity in the event of a cyber attack

  • Provide your customers with the assurance that you have the processes and systems in place to manage their data.

  • Participate in tenders and meet the needs of your clients.

The most effective standards you should consider include:

ISO 27001 – Information Management Security Systems – Demonstrate that your business has addressed and implemented processes to ensure the information you possess is secure against possible cyber-attacks.

ISO 22301 – Business Continuity Management – Provides a framework to ensure that your business has prepared and can respond to disruptive incidents such as cyber-attacks.

ISO 20000 – Information Technology Service Management – Creates a framework that allows your organisation to provide a consistent and trustworthy portfolio of IT services.
