ISO Certification for Telecommunications Service Providers

When it comes to ISO Certification for organisations in the IT Sector, the most suitable certification to choose is ISO 27001. ISO 27001 is recognised globally as a benchmark for good security practice and defines the requirements of an information security management system (ISMS). ISMS is a set of policies, procedures, processes and systems that manage information risks, such as cyber-attacks, hacks, data leaks or theft, helping you to reassure your customers that you have the processes in place to protect their information.

Having these processes in place helps you minimise the risk of data breach for your organisation and for your customers. ISO 27001 consists of 10 management system clauses and 114 controls (from Annex A) and that together support the implementation and maintenance of an ISMS.
