How Cyolo Helps You Achieve Compliance: ISO/IEC 27001

Achieving ISO/IEC 27001 certification can help many companies improve their information security management practices, comply with legal and regulatory requirements, build customer trust, gain a competitive advantage, and improve their overall business operations. As an internationally recognized standard, ISO/IEC 27001 sets out the requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The standard is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) model and is designed to help organizations of all sizes and types establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve their ISMS. By doing so, they usually make measurable progress towards their organizational goals and dramatically improve their cybersecurity.

ISO/IEC 27001 specifies a framework for managing and protecting sensitive information and data assets. It provides a systematic approach for identifying and managing risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. The standard covers a wide range of security controls, including physical, technical, and organizational measures, and it provides a comprehensive risk management process that includes risk assessment, risk treatment, and risk monitoring and review.

Cyolo can support an enterprise in an ISO/IEC 27001 audit by providing solutions that help them comply with the standard. Cyolo provides a critical layer of security to an enterprise’s network, applications, and data by ensuring that only authorized users are allowed to access them.
