MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (ISMS)

Introduction to ISO 27001:2022

ISO 27001:2022 is the latest edition of the renowned standard for information security management systems (ISMS). It provides a comprehensive approach to securing the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of corporate information by applying a risk management process and gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed.
