Cybersecurity is a very broad domain and ISO 27001 is usually referred to as an information security standard, which is very hard to separate from cybersecurity.
Currently there is nothing like a public register that lists out all the certified companies, but companies who have achieved ISO 27001 will be issued a certificate.
- Confidentiality: Only authorized persons have the right to access information.
- Integrity: Only authorized persons can change the information.
- Availability: The information must be accessible to authorized persons whenever it is needed.
Organizational controls are implemented by defining the rules to be followed, as well as expected behavior from users, equipment, software, and systems. e.g., Access Control Policy, BYOD Policy, etc.
People controls are implemented by providing knowledge, education, skills, or experience to persons to enable them to perform their activities in a secure way. E.g., ISO 27001 awareness training, ISO 27001 internal auditor training, etc.
Physical controls are primarily implemented by using equipment or devices that have a physical interaction with people and objects. E.g., CCTV cameras, alarm systems, locks, etc.
Technological controls are primarily implemented in information systems, using software, hardware, and firmware components added to the system. E.g., backup, antivirus software, etc.
Some countries have published regulations that require certain industries to implement ISO 27001. If you want to know if it is mandatory for your business, book a time and check with us.
ISO 27017 is not a regulatory framework, so no one is legally compelled to follow it. However, it’s a highly regarded standard for cloud service providers. If you offer any service or product that is stored in the cloud, being ISO 27017 compliant will give your customers peace of mind.
ISO 27017 and ISO 27018 are similar controls within the ISO 27000 family, but they do have slight differences. ISO 27017 is a general, overall standard for cloud security. ISO 27018, on the other hand, specifically focuses on protecting personally identifiable information (PII) in cloud environments.
