ISO 27001 HR AND MANAGEMENT
Ensuring Employees be Aware of ISMS Responsibility – Best Practices for Businesses with ISO 27001 HR & Management Certification.
In today’s digital age, data breaches, and cyber-attacks have become a growing concern for businesses across all industries. This is why businesses must have strong information security practices in place.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has developed the ISO 27001 Standard to help organizations establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve their information security management systems.
Why is ISO 27001 Certification Important for HRM?
ISO 27001 HR And Management standard is designed to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information by applying a risk management process and giving assurance to interested parties that risks are adequately managed.
HR and management play a critical role in the implementation of ISO 27001. HR is responsible for ensuring that employees are aware of their information security responsibilities and receive appropriate training. Management is responsible for establishing policies and procedures to ensure the security of information and for ensuring that these policies are implemented and followed.
