How ISO 27001 Strengthens The Information Security For Organizations?

In the world, where the leading companies that lead the businesses are not safe then definitely the safety of every company cannot be guaranteed. But what can be done is to apply safety measures to make the networks from attacks and be vigilant against all cyber threats.

A latest security standard seems to be the best possible solution in this regard as it looks after the overall network of the firm without leaving any things susceptible.

Study about the implementation of the safety standard:-

A study was organized in the last year of about 250 IT professionals in the world who had implemented, implementing and were planning to implement the ISMS (international security management system) that complies with the ISO 27001.

The main cause for it:-

This report suggested that the main cause for the implementation of this safety standard for 69% of the professionals was the need of improved information safety. According to 56% they wanted a competitive advantage. 56% were in the favor of regulatory compliance.

According to Alan Carder:-

According to Alan Calder who founded the IT governance;

“Information safety teams need to emphasize more than ever the value and benefits that this standard brings to an organization’s information safety. Although justifying the return on investment (ROI) can be a challenging task for information safety teams, improved security posture, competitive advantage, client and stakeholder credibility, and legal and regulatory compliance are pertinent and convincing arguments for the board to support an ISO 27001 implementation project.”

Worth of this standard:-

A large number or respondents reported about the regular and random requests from the clients about the safety standard. This fact is enough to prove the worth of this standard and the role it plays in the customer and supply chain demands. It also assists businesses in seeking new opportunities

Adding more Alan Carder said that the ever growing attacks on businesses whether small or large have made this standard an integral part or requirement for contract.

Demonstration:-

Those organizations that are certified with this standard show the clients how they exercised the best and effective practices for the processes of information security and how the ever evolving threats were managed and warded off.

Responsibilities given:-

The above mentioned survey also showed that the companies that employed a permanent ISMS manager were 16%. The organizations that handed these responsibilities to the IT manager were 19%, 18% they were managed by the CISOs, CIO at 6%. 15% of the organizations gave the responsibilities to compliance or risk managers.

How To Differentiate Between ISO 27001 And Managed Security Services

Introduction:

To stay on top of these highly technical and security related domains, one would need to understand the difference between the two. I have met many people in my circles and when I ask them about the two, not many of them are clear about what it is.

Qatar is one of the emerging tech markets and has been the center attention by many ventures. The role played by the fact that FIFA 2022 will also be held here has triggered the attention of investors further.

The standard:

Many online businesses are trying to squeeze in and ensure that they milk these promising situations to the fullest. However, because the trends are going to be more towards the online business practices, therefore one as an entrepreneur would need to understand the difference between ISO 27001 Qatar and other security frameworks.

Many business owners believe that it is a standard that is not worth the consideration because it does not help them out; this is where they get things wrong. It really is a standard but it is not a tool that will remove the viruses for you, block the attackers, it can define procedures and ways in which one can cope with the anticipated threats.

To ensure that this standard is followed to the fullest, one would need to consider the option of outsourcing the security needs to third parties that are skilled and known for their understanding the said capacities.

To outsource or not to outsource:

One may also consider the idea of dealing with all the cyber security related issues by dealing with them using an in-house approach. That would be expensive though plus one of the major drawback associated with it is the absence of 24/7 support.

Managed Security Services

Managed security services, therefore are the center of attention for many business owners simply because they prove affordable when compared to the in-house approach. In many cases, they deal with the incoming threats promptly and ensure that the service acquirers get round the clock support and solutions that are in line with the standards defined in ISO 27001.

The final word:

No matter where one operates if the business is more reliant on the online world of trading then one must ensure that all the business information, procedures, and activities are strongly backed and secured with robust tools and applications that are unbreakable, strong and elite in nature.

Dealing with this big task may not be easy, if one as a business owner is keen to carry out things on his own, the idea would be to ensure a backup that is professional and robust in nature.
