ISO 27001 is all about Information Security Management. The protection of potentially confidential or sensitive data is vital to the success of an enterprise, hence ISO 27001 is designed to diminish the likelihood of data breaches. ISO, (the International Organisation for Standardisation), produces documents that determine specifications, requirements, and guidance to ensure that services, products, and procedures are delivered to the appropriate standard, and achieve their primary objective, thus complying to ISO 27001 is significant.
