ISO/IEC 27001 provides companies with a cybersecurity framework to manage risks and protect against threats. Compliance with this framework helps secure information assets such as financial information, personal data, and intellectual property. That includes information related to an organization’s business and employees, as well as their customers and suppliers.
Cybersecurity should now be at the top of every company agenda. Cyber incidents such as data breaches and ransomware are regularly making headlines. This is exacerbated by global political tensions. In addition, the majority of enterprises now rely on cloud-based infrastructures, and in many countries around one-third of the workforce now works remotely, at least part of the time. As a result of these changes, organizations are required to reassess their risks and countermeasures in a structured way, in the context of their ISMS. Since ISO/IEC 27001:2013 was published in 2013, the changes in ISO/IEC 27001:2022 were necessary to help address the above-mentioned developments.
