SIGNIFICANCE OF ISO 27001/BS 7799 ISMS

ISO 27001:2005 helps organizations to implement information security management systems (ISMS) to deal with increasingly competitive markets and the security requirements of customers, both implicit and explicit.

To enable you respond to your customers’ and your partners’ needs, AFNOR Groupe offers ISO 27001:2005 certification.

Certification to ISO 27001 adds value to the measures taken to protect the assets of your customers, as well as your own.

Certification of an organization or a unit to ISO 27001 demonstrates its capacity to regularly identify the assets within its environment, define suitable protection measures and manage a coherent and effective information security system. Complemented by ISO 17799:2005 “Code of practice for information security management” and the July 2002 OECD guidelines, the ISO 27001 standard provides a framework for setting up, maintaining and improving a management system.

Based on the BS 7799-2 framework, ISO 27001 takes the BS requirements in their entirety and incorporates new security controls.
The 2005 version contains the following chapters:

  • – Information Security Management System,
  • – Management responsibility,
  • – Internal ISMS audits,
  • – Management Review,
  • – ISMS improvement,

…but also 39 control objectives and 133 controls.

Built with the Approach Process and PDCA Model, it acts as a tool for all sectors and companies, subjected to strong competition and specific customer requirements.

Moreover, ISO 27001 is naturally integrated in organizations using the principles of management standards such as ISO 9001, EN 9100, ISO 14001….
