In 2022, the size of the global cybersecurity market amounted to almost $222 billion, according to a survey published on Statista. In response to the growing number of cyber crimes and threats, the market is anticipated to experience a nearly three-time increase and reach over $657 by 2030.
One of the time-tested ways to protect information from criminals is to establish an information security management system and prove its effectiveness with ISO/IEC 27001 certification.
ISO/IEC 27001 is the world’s highest standard for information security management systems. The standard aims to provide a company of any size and from any industry with instructions about creating, implementing, and enhancing an information security system.
Obtaining ISO/IEC 27001 certification isn’t just about information security, privacy, and data protection.
An ISO/IEC 27001 certificate on a company’s website shows dedication, competence, and professionalism. The standard lays the foundation for more achievements in the future and tremendously optimizes a company’s resources.
Here are a few major benefits of obtaining ISO/IEC 27001 certification for our company.
As the world’s most popular standard for information security management systems, ISO/IEC 27001 is also a sign of trust in the business world.
Once obtained, the certification demonstrates commitment, responsibility, and transparency to the companies we’re cooperating with and the companies that may become our partners soon.
In other words, everyone who collaborates with us can be sure that we follow the same, internationally approved, security guidelines.
All three basic information security principles, such as confidentiality, information integrity, and availability of data, are observed.
An information security management system includes a set of practices and procedures that help a business identify existing security gaps and vulnerabilities and minimize risks in the future by improving resilience.
Following the ISO/IEC 27001 standard, a company or brand secures all the data in a centrally managed framework, which allows them to enhance internal security structure and focus on more significant goals.
When preparing for ISO/IEC 27001 certification, a company increases the level of knowledge about information security among employees and decreases the odds of being attacked due to human mistakes.
The standard requires all people working in a company to pass a specific training program that boosts security awareness, and the company’s information security department informs the staff about the latest trends and threats in cybersecurity.
The ISO/IEC 27001 standardization is a step further towards compliance with other frameworks, standards, and regulations, such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Network & Information Systems (NIS).
Companies that obtained the ISO/IEC 27001 standard avoid financial losses from security breaches and prevent possible fines and penalties caused by non-compliance.
Now that the security and privacy concerns were taken care of, we can focus on establishing and strengthening our partnerships and developing solutions to drive positive change in pharma.
