Digitalization is progressing further and further – with all its advantages and risks. Avoiding it has become virtually impossible for businesses. That is why it is important to know how to successfully use the chances that industry 4.0 brings with it while at the same time repelling the threats. Regulations for the security of information technology are playing a big role in this. One of them is the ISO 27001 – but why is a certification according to specifically this guideline worthwhile?
Nowadays, there are rarely any business processes that do not rely on an error-free IT. Establishing an all-round secured IT is thus vital not only for data centers, but also for office buildings, industrial sites or hospitals. Furthermore, there are plenty of regulatory requirements by now that dictate certain security guidelines. ISO 27001 defines the standards that are required for the launch, implementation, monitoring and improvement of management systems for information technology. A certification according to ISO 27001 states that these regulations have been fulfilled.
More transparency and trust in the face of customers and the public
More and more investors and potential customers are seeking industry-leading businesses in whose reliability and security they can trust. In the face of customers, partners and other public bodies, a company that is certified according to ISO 27001 can offer an accepted confirmation of its own actions concerning IT security. Furthermore, the ISO 27001 is an international standard. The recognition across country frontiers is thus also a given.
Advantages of the ISO 27001:
- Lowering process costs
- Lowering financing costs
- Lowering insurance fees
- Lowering liability risks
- Raising competitive capability
- Strengthening the image in public and with business partners
