Hernando, Pasco & Pinellas, Florida (May 15, 2018) – Shawn Epling, Director of IT at Access Health Care Physicians, LLC, has announced that the organization is ISO 27001 Certified. ISO 27001 is a specification for an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical, and technical controls involved in an organization’s information risk management process.
According to its documentation ISO 27001 was developed to “provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, and maintaining an information security management system. ISO 27001 uses a top-down risk-based approach and is technologically neutral. ISO 27001 provides a checklist of controls that should be considered in accompanying code of practice. This standard describes a comprehensive set of information security control objectives and a set of generally accepted good practice security controls.
The ISO 27001 is part of a family of standards that help organizations keep information assets secure. Using this family of standards helps an organization manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted to them by third parties. ISO/IEC 27001 is the best-known standard in the family providing requirements for an information security management system.
