Team 42Gears is glad to announce that we are now ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified. ISO/IEC 27001 is an internationally recognized framework that helps businesses manage and secure their information assets by making them more resilient and responsive to threats. The certificate proves our commitment to following stringent security measures to protect employee records/details, intellectual property and financial information entrusted to us.
ISO/IEC27001 helps businesses protect sensitive information risks/vulnerabilities and put the right security measures in place, which in turn improves reputation and boosts stakeholder confidence.
Since the right kind of information can make or break businesses, information security is of grave importance. Information security is not just about risk management, it is also about exploiting the opportunities today’s interconnected world presents. Precisely why it’s imperative that enterprises build resilience around information security management. An organization’s ability to manage information safely not only helps it stay afloat but also assures partners and clients that it can handle information securely. Following ISO/IEC27001 guidelines helps businesses protect sensitive information risks/vulnerabilities and put the right security measures in place, which in turn improves reputation and boosts stakeholder confidence.
ISO/IEC27001 makes it mandatory for 42Gears to identify all external and internal stakeholders that are relevant to our ISMS (Information Security Management System) and communicate the ISMS policy to them. This ensures that all stakeholders understand how they can contribute, thereby improving information security awareness among them and reducing the probability of breaches. The framework also mandates that we review and communicate regulatory needs to interested parties so we can manage our legal and regulatory requirements better and stay compliant.
ISMS (Information Security Management System) ensures that all stakeholders understand how they can contribute, thereby improving information security awareness among them and reducing the probability of breaches.
As a robust framework, ISO/IEC 27001 made us assess our information security risks so we could identify our vulnerabilities and take preventive action. It also requires that we evaluate the risk landscape continually to ensure that we always have appropriate and proportionate controls in place. Measures such as these help ensure business continuity by minimizing disruptions, reduce costs by minimizing incidents, and ensure that information is safe, available, and securely accessible.
