ISO/IEC 27001: Security Awareness for Everyone

ISO/IEC 27001 Security Awareness is a framework of standards and best practices that organizations can use to develop and implement a comprehensive information security management system (ISMS). It provides a set of guidelines and requirements for organizations to protect their information assets, such as customer data, intellectual property, and financial records. The framework is designed to help organizations identify, evaluate, and manage risks associated with their information assets. It focuses on five key areas: identifying and assessing risks, implementing security controls, monitoring and reviewing security controls, managing security incidents, and continuously improving the ISMS. It also includes guidance on developing a security awareness program to ensure that all employees understand the importance of information security and how to protect it.
