Every organization strives to safeguard their highly sensitive corporate information with a robust platform which will help to ensure the integrity and security of their corporate data.Implementing a information security & management system is one way to ensure that access to data is appropriately authorized and protected. Whatever form the information is in and whatever means it is shared or stored, an information management system should ensure that data is protected while preserving,
Confidentiality – ensuring appropriate authorization to access information
Integrity – conserving the accuracy and completeness of proprietary information and processing methods
Availability – ensuring access to information for authorized users when required
The goal of an Information Security Management System (ISMS) is to protect the information that differentiates your business, both online and in person. ISMS gives you the freedom to grow, innovate and broaden your customer-base in the knowledge that all your confidential information will remain that way.This is achieved through a system of processes, documents, technology and people that helps to manage, monitor, audit and improve your organization’s information security.
While the implementation of an ISMS will vary from organization to organization, there are certain underlying principles that all ISMS must abide by in order to be effective at protecting an organization’s information assets.

ISO 27001 isn't an appliance or piece of software that guarantees data breaches won't happen, because such a thing doesn't exist. It is an internationally formalized standard where, yourcompany is required to write and implement procedures based on the actual written standard.The key factors towards an effective ISMS for an organization involves Education, awareness, formalized processes, continual review and improvement, and commitment from all members within the organization.
All organizations, businesses, government groups, academic institutions and nonprofits interested in implementing a framework for the long term protection of their information assets may apply the guidelines and certification requirements of the ISO 27001 standards.
