Understanding ISO 27001 Compliance

ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 is an internationally accepted information security standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (IOS). The standard describes best practices to implement and maintain Information Security Management System (ISMS).

ISO 27001 compliance for data security is basically a framework that tells organizations the best roadmap to create and run an effective ISMS. Getting an ISO 27001 compliance certification demonstrates that you align with international best practices for information security. It is supported by its code of practice, ISO 27002, formerly known as ISO 17799.
