ISO 27001 is the international standard that describes the best practice for establishing, implementing, and maintaining an information security management system (ISMS). ISO 27001 provides a system to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. Achieving accredited certification to ISO 27001 demonstrates to existing and potential customers that your organization follows information security best practices and provides an independent, expert verification that information security is managed in line with international best practices and business objectives. This is especially relevant when seeking ways in which to prove compliance with data security requirements such as NIST 800 – 171.
