Security Risk Governance Consulting & Advisory

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001 for short) is part of the ISO/IEC 27000 international family of standards. It is an Information Security Management System (ISMS) standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). ISO 27001 is a certifiable standard that formally specifies an Information Security Management System (ISMS) which is regularly reviewed and audited both internally and externally in order to achieve certification for the standard. Management controls, operational policies, and accepted information security risks are established mandating specific requirements for implementing, maintaining, monitoring, reviewing/auditing, responding to non-compliance, and improving the organization's ISMS.

The key objective of ISO 27001 is to make sure that confidentiality, integrity, and availability is ensured for critical data assets. The ISMS will benefit your organization by ensuring customer confidence, aiding in compliance and regulation, addressing internal/external security risks, and promoting internal effectiveness. ISO 27001 certification makes sense for your organization when information security compliance is mandated by client, regulatory, or legal requirements.

Key Benefits:

  • Establishes a formal information security framework for implementing security controls and objectives

  • Ensures compliance with client, regulatory, and legal requirements

  • Allows you to provide relevant security policies and pass security audits required by prospective clients

  • Identify and improve current security processes

  • Establish acceptable business risks for relevant security controls

  • Reduce the costs and risks of security breaches if they do occur as well as ensuring the incident is properly managed

This standard enables you to independently demonstrate to your customers that you meet best practice. ISO/IEC 20000 is applicable to any organization, large or small, in any sector or part of the world which relies on IT services. The standard is particularly applicable to internal / external IT service providers, IT departments and IT outsourcing organizations.

Assurance that sensitive data is not leaked to unauthorized persons is therefore, a challenge that organizations need to address in order to protect their business assets and reputation and meet regulatory requirements. To make things more complicated, most information security products are designed to protect networks and servers, but do little to protect the confidentiality and integrity of the information itself.


Data Loss Prevention solutions offered by Nexagate are designed to take on and effectively address this challenge and mitigate the risk of sensitive information exposure.

Key Benefits:

  • Enhances your understanding of data use and flows within your organization assisting in the improvement of sensitive information handling policies and procedures

  • Enhances your ability to prevent and control data loss in real time

  • Real time notifications of suspected incidents regarding the potential loss of sensitive information

  • Compliments and enriches your organization’s information security protection
