Learn how ISO 27001 protects your organisation’s information assets


Information and information systems are vital to every organisation. Our reliance on data and information, and the fact that they are so easy to share, means that everyone is at risk of a cyber attack from hackers, viruses, or even from simple human error.

To counter these threats, you have to identify the information risks your business faces and find the most appropriate way to mitigate them.

Adopting the ISO 27001 standard will give your organisation a reliable framework for creating an information security management system (ISMS).


The compelling business case for investing in information security

Updated to reflect ISO 27001:2013, this must-have guide presents the compelling business case for implementing ISO 27001 to protect your information assets.

The Case for ISO27001:2013 is a clear and concise introduction and a perfect supporting text for an ISO 27001 project proposal.

  • Fight cyber crime – Implementing the ISO 27001 ISMS will help protect your organisation from the threat of organised crime.
  • Combat cyber terror – Implementing an ISMS makes it easier to defend your company against a destructive cyber attack.
  • Improve your corporate governance – Reducing your company’s financial exposure to the risk of losses resulting from IT system failure is now a corporate governance requirement. ISO 27001 will help you to comply.
  • Recover from accidents – With ISO 27001, you can minimise the risk that your information will be lost or corrupted as a result of human error.


“… it’s as good a short introduction to info-security, and security management in general, as you could wish to find … Calder has done a grand job of setting out the case [for ISO 27001], briefly.”
