Our Delegates:

Today, organisations are increasingly vulnerable to security threats as our dependence on information systems grows ever greater. It is vital that your organisation applies the appropriate controls to manage the risks associated with information and data and demonstrate that you are preserving the confidentiality, integrity and availability of those assets for clients, shareholders and society as a whole.

The Delegate attending ISO27001 Ireland is the individual that understands the importance of Information Security Management Systems. Responsible for the integrity of their IT infrastructure, these industry leaders will some begin begin the journey to ISO27001. Most having aligned their infrastructure to the standard, it is now time to take that next step to accreditation.

Hive Meetings:

The fundamental aim of ISO 27001 is to protect the information of your organisation from security threats such as: viral attack, misuse, theft, vandalism/ terrorism and fire. ISO 27001 quickly produces a return on investment, giving you thorough guidance on complying to regulatory and contractual requirements regarding data security, privacy and IT governance. The ISMS encourages the identification and classification of the organisations information assets and a systematic risk assessment of threats and vulnerabilities. ISO 27001 provides a framework to assure an organisation that its information security measures are effective.

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 (formally known as ISO/IEC 27001:2013) is a specification for an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organisation’s information risk management processes.

According to its documentation, ISO 27001 was developed to “provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving an information security management system.”

ISO 27001 uses a topdown, risk-based approach and is technology-neutral. The specification defines a six-part planning process:

  1. Define a security policy.
  2. Define the scope of the ISMS.
  3. Conduct a risk assessment.
  4. Manage identified risks.
  5. Select control objectives and controls to be implemented.
  6. Prepare a statement of applicability.

The specification includes details for documentation, management responsibility, internal audits, continual improvement, and corrective and preventive action. The standard requires cooperation among all sections of an organisation.

The ISO27001 standard does not mandate specific information security controls, but it provides a checklist of controls that should be considered in the accompanying code of practice, ISO/IEC 27002:2013. This second standard describes a comprehensive set of information security control objectives and a set of generally accepted good practice security controls.

ISO 27002 contains 12 main sections:

1. Risk assessment
2. Security policy
3. Organization of information security
4. Asset management
5. Human resources security
6. Physical and environmental security
7. Communications and operations management
8. Access control
9. Information systems acquisition, development and maintenance
10. Information security incident management
11. Business continuity management
12. Compliance

Organisations are required to apply these controls appropriately in line with their specific risks. Third-party accredited certification is recommended for ISO 27001 conformance.
