ISO 27001, the information security management standard, is an essential badge of confidence for any technology or SaaS business. Our new 15-step guide will help you make the implementation process as smooth as possible.
As your organisation grows, the implementation and certification of standards becomes increasingly important. Gaining accreditation can enhance your reputation with key stakeholders such as board members and investors, as well as customers, who want to be sure they can trust your organisation.
ISO 27001– The Essential Standard for SaaS and Tech Companies
The ISO 27001 standard allows you to demonstrate effective management of the security of business critical data such as: employee and customer details, financial information or intellectual property.
We have implemented ISO 27001 ourselves, and we work with SaaS companies every day, providing them with secure private cloud and hybrid cloud hosting solutions, so we know how important this standard is and what it takes to get it.
The Simplest Path to ISO 27001 Implementation
There is no shortcut to implementing ISO 27001 or other standards and accreditations , but by treating it as a project and breaking it down into manageable steps, as we detail in the guide, you can make the process smooth and manageable.
In the guide, we explain the 15 key steps in the process and how these fit into the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, detail the documentation you will need, and explain how an Integrated Management System Manual (IMSM) can help if you are intending to implement multiple standards.
We created this guide with ISO 27001 in mind, but taking a similar approach should help with gaining accreditation for a number of standards.
