ISO 27001-Information Security Management

This Internationally recognised ISO standard covers the security of digital information. It provides a framework for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) to provide continued confidentiality, integrity and availability of information, and legal compliance.

It has become increasingly important to clients as part of cybersecurity and other legal requirements mitigating the many security threats.  This standard specifies the need for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system for the organisation. Including what is necessary for assessment and treatment of information security risks. The requirements detailed in ISO/IEC 27001:2013 are generic and  intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size or nature. 

Supporting Global Payroll Systems and Information Management

The security of data in systems involved in global payroll is critical, due to the nature of the data and how it must be handled. Regardless of size, this is often a challenge for organisations worldwide who have to manage multiple systems and processes.

Fulfilling the criteria of the ISO 27001 standard is usually a requirement for organisations when choosing a global payroll provider and any company handling large amounts of personal data.
