ISO27001 (formerly BS7799) is the international standard for Information Security Management Systems and provides organisations worldwide with a framework for managing their information security. The three tenets to this standard are that organisations must ensure:
- Confidentiality: That your sensitive information is protected from unauthorised or illegal disclosure;
- Integrity: The information within your systems is protected from accidental or deliberate tampering; and
- Availability: The systems and information you need are available when and where you need them.
Red Island Consulting has found that in the age of austerity, the information security industry has been revolutionised – high profile data leakages have spurred demand whereas the economic outlook has made companies more cautious. The dominant influence has been the need for companies to continue to invest in their information security capability to mitigate their reputational and regulatory risks; consequently, ISO27001 is becoming a key requirement for trade and becoming a mandate within commercial tenders.
We have taken more organisations through to ISO27001 compliance / certification than any other consultancy and have been responsible for over 25% of all UK certifications. We know the problems your organisation will face on your path to certification and we also know how to solve them. We offer implementation solutions, not just tick-box auditing.
Adopting the Red Island Consulting adaptable approach will ensure the route to compliance / certification to ISO27001 is quick, painless and cost effective, with a level of skills transfer to your key personnel that will leave your company systemised for life and able to uphold the standard from within.
For the duration of the project, the Red Island Consultant will provide your project team with a free and constant flow of information and tuition in the form of informal conversation and on the job training. If required, Red Island will audit the skills transfer programme to ensure the correct level of expertise has been passed to client staff.
