New ISO/IEC 27001

Preventing and protecting companies from cyber-attacks while helping them to secure their information assets, the revised version of the information security management system standard ISO/IEC 27001 is now available.

As numbers of security breaches affecting UK businesses continue to rise, both large and small organisations benefit from having procedures in place to secure their information assets.

The rise in social networking sites, smartphones and tablets has seen organisations increasingly placed at risk of security or data breaches.

The revised standard ISO/IEC 27001:2013 includes improvements to security controls designed to protect against risks such as identity theft in relation to mobile devices.
