Information Security Management System

An information security management system (ISMS) describes the formal, documented process that covers a set of policies and procedures for the systematic management of an organization’s sensitive data. It enables companies to analyze and assess threats and vulnerabilities in processes, systems, servers and applications (i.e. assets), implement measures and controls, and monitor their effectiveness. An effective ISMS is implemented and operated by both IT and business professionals and, therefore, cannot be viewed as a mere technical issue or topic.


The overriding goal of an ISMS is to minimize risk and ensure business continuity by proactively anticipating, assessing and limiting the impact of a security breach. Creating a stable, applied process that is based on business objectives and integrates the entire organization is the objective.

Fulfilling objectives regarding protection

Introduce information security controls to ensure trust, integrity and availability of the protected information.

Improve maturity level

Increase the effectiveness of the controls as part of regular reporting.

Receive certification

Many organizations also strive to obtain certification for their ISMS based on ISO/IEC 27001 for internal purposes or as evidence for customers, suppliers and other third parties.
