Information Security plays a pivotal role in today’s digital world where organisations rely on servers, cloud storage solutions, and other digital storage formats. These are commonly referred to as digital assets and must be protected accordingly. With an Information Security Management System (ISMS), your organisation can take initiative and protect your digital assets against cyber-attacks. WWISE can develop and implement an ISMS that is aligned with the framework that is provided by the ISO 27001:2013 Standard to give you the proper means to protect your digital assets and sensitive/personal information that is digitally stored.
Considering the POPI Act in South Africa
South Africa’s POPI Act protects an individual’s rights to privacy and personal information. Where an organisation leaks, sells or uses personal information, such as contact details, without the consent of that specific individual, they can face legal charges as a result of breaching the POPI Act. Therefore, it is now more important than ever to ensure that your organisation has a solution for Information Security to protect your employees’ and customers’ personal data and information.
What is ISO 27001:2013?
The ISO 27001:2013 Standard is published by the International Organisation for Standardisation and delivers a framework on which an Information Security Management System can be developed and implemented for an organisation that wishes to comply with, and be certified against, the ISO 27001:2013 Standard. By conforming with this standard, your organisation will have the means to reduce the probability of a cyber-attack and sensitive information leaks, to avoid any legal action in terms of acquiring, storing, and accessing personal information about your employees, customers, business associates, etc.
