Many organisations utilise ad hoc approaches to their information security practices that are not risk-based or provide a specific framework or structure to follow. More often than not this results in weaker security, increased costs and poor compliance.
Standards are tried and tested frameworks that provide you with a more efficient and effective way of working. In today’s data driven world where cybersecurity threats are a growing concern, more organisations are realising the benefits of standardising their approach and management of information security to industry best practice and standards.
Information security standards provide you with the knowledge to appropriately and efficiently protect your critical information assets. They help you improve your performance, reduce your risks and sustain your business. In addition, they help you demonstrate your commitment to customers, regulators and internal stakeholders, that you value both their information and your reputation.
