The Information Security Management System (ISMS) is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. It encompasses people, processes, and IT systems. The international standard provides the framework for an organization to implement a globally recognized system for managing the security of their information. The ISO 27001 standard integrates the process-based approach of ISO’s management system standards, including the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle and requirement for continual improvement. Meeting the standard assures customers and suppliers that organizations have developed and certified their information management systems to an internationally recognized standard for security.
