ISO/IEC 27001 is an information security standard which helps organizations establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve their information security management systems. The framework provides practical approaches for ensuring the safety of information, maximizing reliability, and adding value to services. Having employees certified against ISO/IEC 27001 further ensures legal and regulatory compliance.
The ISO/IEC 27001 Foundation certification testifies to a practitioner’s knowledge of basic elements to implement and manage an information security management system (ISMS) based on the ISO/IEC 27001 standard. It also vouches to their understanding of modules of ISMS, including ISMS policy, performance measurements, internal audit, and continual improvement.
