Support your efforts to gain ISO 27001 by making Vulnerability Management a breeze.
Created by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 27001 is widely recognised as the best practice for information security, providing a framework for organisations to put in place robust controls for protecting confidential data and ensuring the availability of critical systems. The standard is also regularly updated to reflect the latest best practices in the field of information security.
While the standard is voluntary, many businesses choose to adopt it in order to demonstrate their commitment to data security and show their customers that they take information security seriously. And in some industries, such as healthcare and finance, ISO 27001 certification is required as a prerequisite for doing business.
In order to comply with ISO 27001, organisations must demonstrate that there are adequate controls in place to protect their data from unauthorised access, destruction, or alteration. They must also regularly review their security procedures to ensure that they remain effective.
Some of the key controls include maintaining a secure network, developing strong authentication procedures, and encrypting data. By implementing these and other ISO 27001 controls, businesses can make it much harder for hackers to gain access to sensitive information, and more quickly detect and respond to security incidents.
Vulnerability scanning is core to ISO27001 compliance because it ensures that organisations spot and address potential risks in a timely manner.
By running thousands of checks against your systems, a vulnerability scan can help you identify weaknesses in your systems that could be exploited by attackers, and help you verify that the controls you have in place are effective at detecting and preventing attacks.
