ISO Standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organization. ISO/IEC 27001:2005 Information Technology—Security techniques—Information security management systems—Requirements is an information security management system (ISMS) standard published in October 2005 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
The potential benefits, of implementing ISO 27001 and obtaining certification are numerous. It can enable enterprises to benchmark against competitors and to provide relevant information about IT security to vendors and customers and can enable management to demonstrate due diligence. It can foster efficient security cost management, compliance with laws and regulations, and a comfortable level of interoperability due to a common set of guidelines followed by the partner organization. It can improve IT information security system quality assurance (QA) and increase security awareness among employees, customers, vendors, etc., and increase IT and business alignment.
The true success of ISO 27001 is its alignment with the business objectives and effectiveness in realizing those objectives. IT and other functional departments play an important role in implementing ISO 27001. Implementing ISO 27001 is an exercise toward better understanding an existing inventory of IT initiatives, information availability and ISMS implementation phases. An organization also needs to have the detailed understanding of PDCA implementation phases. Without a well-defined and developed ISO 27001/27002 project plan, implementing ISO would be a time and cost-consuming exercise.
