What is an ISMS?

Posted on March 5, 2018

An Information Security Management System (ISMS) is a system of processes, documents, technology and people that helps to manage, monitor, audit and improve your organization’s information security. It helps you manage all your security practices in one place, consistently and cost-effectively.

An ISO 27001-compliant ISMS relies on regular risk assessments, so you will be able to identify and treat security threats according to your organization’s risk appetite and tolerance.
