ISO 27001:2005 Information Security Management System (ISMS)

Information Security Management System (ISMS) represents a framework of procedures and policies that vets an organisations ability to employ appropriate information security measures from a legal, physical and technical perspective.

In this modern age, information and information systems are vital to all organisations. ISO 27001 sets out specific requirements, all of which must be followed, and against which an organisation’s Information Security Management System (ISMS) can be audited and certified.
