What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001, or more precisely ISO/IEC 27001, is part of the ISO 27000 family of standards, of which it is the best known. Concretely, this international standard from ISO and IEC sets up strict requirements for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS).

The main feature of ISO/IEC 27001 is that it deals with security by a risk-based approach. In other words, by being certified ISO 27001, an organization demonstrates that it has identified the security risks that could affect it and its sensitive data, and that it has taken the necessary organizational measures to manage these risks.


What are the main lines of implementation?

The ISO 27001 certification starts with the definition of the ISMS according to the needs of the organization, through the realization of a study of the risks which weighs on the sensitive data included in this perimeter of intervention. The study is carried out at both the micro and macro levels. It also concerns the environment in which the organization in question evolves. After identifying the risks, the ratio between the probability of the event occurring and its impact is determined. This allows for the selection of adequate protective measures, listed in the ISO 27002 standard.

By implementing the ISO 27001 standards (and the other standards of the ISO 27000 family by extension), a company can effectively protect itself from the risks weighing on its sensitive assets such as information relating to its personnel, its financial data or its intellectual property documents.

We are ISO 27001:2013 certified!

In addition to our PASSI qualification, we have chosen to obtain ISO 27001 certification for the perimeter of our infrastructure from which we conduct our PASSI audits. On the one hand, this certification allows us to raise our security level even higher, not only from a technical point of view, but also and especially from an organizational and process management point of view. On the other hand, it demonstrates that we apply to ourselves the advice we give to our customers. Obtaining this certification is the result of several months of work, but it is worth the effort to enable us to better protect the sensitive data we may be handling.
