What is ISO 27001:2013 certificate?
ISO 27001 is an international standard that specifies the requirements for implementing an information security management system (ISMS) and ISO 27001:2013 is the current version. The standard outlines the specifications for establishing, implementing, sustaining, and continuously improving an information security management system within an organization. It also contains requirements for assessing and treating information security threats that are specific to the organization's needs. These standards are standardized and intended to apply to all institutions, regardless of type, scale, or design.
What are benefits of ISO 27001 for software development business and Groove’s customers?
- Improve risk management and information security. This can be considered as the most important advantage of implementing ISO 27001. It standardizes how an organization's information protection is handled. It uses a top-down approach based on a solid risk management system, requiring that all staffs from the boardroom, project managers, software development team to the office administration, marketing, sale have proper information security expertise. ISO 27001 also requires a set of standard information security measures that explain how the company will enforce controls. These policies and controls tie together and standardize the behaviors and processes that the organization needs to promote in order to ensure good information security.
- Enhance customer’s confidence in winning new business: Having our ISO27001 certification assures our customers that our internal procedures are oriented toward keeping their information confidential by informing them that we are ISO 27001 accredited.
