For starters, let's take a look at the International Standards Organization (ISO). Founded in 1946, ISO is the largest standards organization globally. As noted on their website, "ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 161 national standards bodies. Through its members, it brings together experts to share knowledge and develop voluntary, consensus-based, market relevant International Standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges."
Yes, ISO matters, and it's also highly established, trusted and globally respected. When companies need to come together around a need, ISO is a great conduit to accomplish globally successful standards.
ISO 27001 is a global standard that helps organizations keep their information assets secured. At a very high level, ISO 27001 provides a set of standards and practices that help manage employee, financial, intellectual and other information entrusted to you by a third party (think of the client and vendor relationship). ISO 27001 is the best guidance platform for the creation and sustainment of an Information Security Management System (ISMS).
327 Solutions expects the need for and interest in ISO 27001 to accelerate over the next decade as more and more organizations catch up to the cyber security requirements of the 21st century. Likewise, ISO 27001 is a vendor-neutral certification whereby teams can train their employees without a heightened degree of concern from more turnover.
