We're now ISO 27001 certified!
Why ISO 27001:2013 is Important for us?
ISO 27001 is a significant standard for the security of information, data, and systems – both within the company and where the customer data is saved and processed. Being a pioneer in offering Payroll Outsourcing Services in Sri Lanka for more than three decades, we believe it is far more important for us to invest all our resources and energy to obtain this International Standard.
The effort that most organizations need to put into protecting customer information, as well as their own business information, may seem anywhere from overwhelming to overkill. Small businesses may look at the potential for a data breach and wonder if they can afford to take the risk on cutting corners to keep to their limited budget. On the other end of the spectrum, large organizations may experience growth too quickly to realize they have outgrown their last solution, or they simply scoff at the thought of needing to revisit recently covered information security matters.
At either extreme, and for every sized-company in between, it is important to find tools, standards, regulations, frameworks and anything else possible to safeguard customers’ information. Thankfully, one crucial standard for customer information protection is ISO 27001.
What Is The ISO 27001 Standard?
The International Organization of Standardization (ISO) developed a series of information management standards, in cooperation with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), created the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards to help organizations protect various information assets.
The set of standards intends to guide organizations in managing the security of all assets, including customer data, employee details, organizational financial information, intellectual property, and data related to or entrusted to the organization by third parties.
ISO 27001 is an important standard in the ISO/IEC 27000 series, focusing on the protection of sensitive information gathered from customers that an organization collects, stores, transmits, or processes. This standard lists auditable requirements related to Information Security Management Systems (ISMS).
While ISO 27001 is not required for organizations, it is highly recommended to help businesses establish a set of security controls and objectives, based on the organization’s specific operations intended to manage the risk of the information.
It is a reliable and widely adopted standard—with organizations from all industries and from around the globe that are ISO 27001 certified—that serves as a roadmap for businesses.The ISO 27001 fills gaps between a company’s own information security policies and systems management processes and the controls connected to the latest version of the official ISO 27001 framework.
