What is ISO 27001:2013?

ISO 27001:2013 is an international certification that specifies the requirements for information security management. It is a revision to ISO 27001:2005, which covers the same area of interest. Regardless of the type, size, or nature of an organization, ISO 27001:2013 is designed to be flexible enough to apply.


In order to ensure the safety of information, the certification has to set forth requirements for each step in the security process.

Here are some of the processes of information security management systems that are taken into consideration:
