The ICT Institute view of ISO 27001

ISO 27001 helps you to create structural information security in your organization. It is one of the few certifiable international standards for an information systems management system. The regular and repeating appraisal process helps you to continuously improve your security.

ICT Institute helps you to make ISO 27001 a living process in your organization. Not a goal in itself, but a real secure organization and IT systems.  Getting the ISO 27001 certificate also shows your status of a certified organization also to external parties, often with very positive impact.

ICT Institute is known for its pragmatic approach and for its help to quickly approach matters that work well and matters that can be improved.  Several ways of working and standard procedures will be shown. We also supply ‘Best Practice’ sample documents, so you’ll hit the ground running in any ISO 27001 project.
