ISO 27001:2013 is one of the most popular information security standards in the world. Today, all over the world more and more companies are achieving ISO 27001 certification to highlight the robustness of their information security management.Compliance with ISO 27001 was previously about having a competitive edge, but now ISO 27001 certification has become the norm for best-practice information security.

With the rise of information security breaches currently, organizations increasingly have to show they can be trusted for information security and privacy management.

Thus, having ISO 27001 demonstrates that an organisation has identified the risks, and put in place preventative measures to protect the organisation from information security breaches.

With this in mind and their stakeholders who are increasingly interested in how their valuable information is handled and protected, Just In Time Group (JIT) took the initiative of obtaining the ISO certification. The risks involved in cyber security and data breaches of any kind are too great nowadays.

“We are serious about the priorities and requirements of our customers when it comes to information security,” said Chrishan Mendis – CEO of JIT.

‘ISO 27001’ certification demonstrates robust security practices, which will instill further confidence in the minds of our customers. Improved information security and data protection is much higher on the list of priorities for today’s business leaders.

The processes required to meet the ISO 27001 standard results in better documentation,which means that all staff will have clear guidelines to follow, to help keep the organisation secure and free from attacks.

This provides a clear framework to consider information security risks, management processes and key operational elements such as how IT systems must be kept up to date with, anti-virus protection, data storage and back-ups and IT change management.

Cyber-attacks and data breaches could always happen, but the forward planning that’s involved with ISO 27001 demonstrates that you have taken adequate steps to protect your business continuity.

Therefore, prevention from the ‘perfect storm’ brewing for any business with regards to cyber threats is why JIT took the initiative, stemming from understanding the customers’ critical requirements.
