Information security standards renewed

Cyberattacks, data breaches, phishing, and identity theft. Topics we regularly hear about in the media. Unfortunately, these types of incidents are becoming commonplace. This means that strong cybersecurity within your organisation is no luxury.

In this article, we provide some tips for using standards to keep your company’s data, and that of your customers, safe.

Why choose information security?

No organisation is immune to cyberattacks or data breaches. As well as suffering serious financial damage, organisations that fall victim to cyberattacks often lose customer trust.

An information security management system (ISMS) helps you mitigate the risks of a cyberattack.


Information security standards

ISO/IEC 27001: the international standard for information security

ISO/IEC 27001 guides you in establishing, evaluating and improving an effective information security management system (ISMS). Thanks to this standard, you protect the confidentiality, availability and integrity of all data within your organisation.

ISO/IEC 15408: evaluation of IT security.

Cyber threats are real, and uncertainty among businesses is high. Having the confidence and assurance that our systems are secure has become a basic requirement. ISO/IEC 15408 helps to restore that confidence. The standard establishes evaluation criteria for IT security.

ISO/IEC 18045: the evaluation method

This standard ISO/IEC 18045 defines the method for evaluating IT security. ISO/IEC 15408 and ISO/IEC 18045 work together like the pedals of a bicycle to ensure IT security. Combining the 2 standards is the best way to test and evaluate the security of products and systems.
