ISO/IEC 27001 for small businesses practical advice

Issue 48 – April 2013

Neglecting to take adequate care of your organisation's information assets is definitely cause for worry. Information may concern the organisation's products, processes, or markets. Information may have sensitive details entrusted by customers, suppliers, or stakeholders. Failure to protect that information can ruin the organisation. Implementing an information security management system (ISMS) based on ISO/IEC 27001 is an effective way to protect information assets. And it's not just for large organisations. ISO/IEC 27001 for Small businesses – Practical advice takes the mystery out of information security and presents a practical, clearly explained step-by-step approach for SMEs to implement an ISMS. The best remedy to worry is taking action to remove the cause.
