What is ISO 27001 Information Security Standard Certification?

Updated: Mar 5

ISO 27001 is the current International Standards Organisation (ISO) Information Security Management System Standard, which is recognised as a worldwide benchmark for business Information Security standards, and recognises that ISO 27001 Certified organisations have been assessed by an independent third party Certification Body as meeting the ISO 27001 Information Security Management System Standard.

Your organisation can achieve ISO 27001 Information Security Certification when Certification Oceania has completed an independent, third-party assessment of your Information Security management system documentation, established whether it has been implemented and has determined that your organisation has addressed each of the requirements in the ISO 27001 Information Security Standard.
