ISO 27001, the information security standard
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001) is the international standard that describes best practice for an ISMS (information security management system). Achieving accredited certification to ISO 27001 demonstrates that your organisation is following international information security best practices.

What is an ISMS?
An ISMS is a system of processes that helps to establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and improve an organisation's information security to achieve business objectives.
An ISO 27001-aligned ISMS helps you manage all your security practices (both electronic and physical) coherently, consistently and cost-effectively.

Why has implementing ISO 27001 in Asia-Pacific become essential?
Cyber crime is on the increase. The IBM 2017 Cost of Data Breach Study found that the average data breach costs $3.62 million.
It is therefore imperative that Asia-Pacific organisations have strategies in place to protect themselves from this growing threat.
Implementing an ISO 27001 ISMS will help to improve information security practices and protect their information assets.
ISO 27001 certifications in East Asia and Pacific have already grown rapidly, reaching almost 15,000 – the highest number worldwide – in 2016 (ISO Survey). Below is the percentage increase of achieved certificates in 2016 compared with 2011.
