The Right Information – Having the right Information is critical any organisation’s survival. However it is ephemeral and difficult to control & track. ISO 27001 helps companies manage their information better.
Encouraging Partnership – Organisations are becoming more aware of their lack of control especially when information is passed to Suppliers and Customers. They are therefore seeking the disciplines and confidence provided by external Assessment to ISO 27001.
Organisations are looking to reduce costs across their Supply chain. One initiative is to minimise duplicate activities like multiple Goods-In & Goods-Out checks and reduce data inputs
ISO 27001 is not just about Security (even if it is in the title); It is about managing the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of information. It is therefore about managing the Risks
Everyone working to the same agreed processes, controls and systems – involve the key personnel in the process to define the required actions to reduce your information incidents and manage your information risks.
Not just IT Department – Traditionally ISO 27001 has been viewed as just a IT concern, but it covers the whole organisation, from the Cleaners emptying waste bins to Managing Director
External Checked by an internationally recognised Certification (eg UKAS accredited in the UK). This not only ensures you maintain and improve, but use the Assessors’ experience to identify possibilities and opportunities.
Increase Tendering and Government Contracts opportunities – customers have limited resources to check Suppliers. Often now, they use ISO 27001 and other Management Standards to determine whether you are a responsible Company and therefore whether spend their time considering your Tender.
Improve Profits– be more effective and efficient. Incidents and Near Misses – they are all a waste of time and money. It is therefore very important to identify actual and potential incidents, investigate, agree and then implement the corrective actions. Otherwise if you are always doing the same things, do not be surprised if you get the same result. Make sure the right information is in the right place at the right time for the right people – failing this is expensive.
Continual Improvement – the business environment continues to change, business need to improve & change. Monitor the important Indicators for your business and make the appropriate factual decisions and actions.
