What is ISO 27001?

Information security is a critical component of every business. Defending against internal and external threats — from accidental data loss to sophisticated cyber attacks  — is a top priority for organizations to safeguard their essential data. 

ISO 27001 is a globally recognized standard that specifies a framework for an information security management system, or ISMS, encompassing people, processes and technology.

ISO 27001 is a set of procedures that outlines how you are addressing information security as a whole. It will push you to consider the following questions:  

  • How do you assess your risks? 
  • How do you review these risks? 
  • How much risk is your organization prepared to take on?

ISO 27001 is applicable to organizations of all types and sizes, making it one of the most popular information security standards in the world. It helps organizations manage their security practices clearly, effectively, and cost-efficiently.

Encrypt Emails and Files in Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace

Email represents a massive surface area of risk, making it a smart place to start when working toward your ISO 27001 Certification. Virtru’s email encryption layers into the applications your employees already use, so they can safeguard sensitive data without changing the way they work. 

Safeguard Inbound and Outbound Data Flows

Sending sensitive documents over email is not always a viable option. For sensitive data in motion and at rest, an encrypted file-sharing solution with complete data privacy is required. Secure Share enables you to securely send and receive files of nearly any size with individuals inside and outside your organization.

3 Key Facets of ISO-27001 Compliance



Ensure that data is only accessible to the intended people or entities. For the strongest security, leverage attribute-based access controls to grant access only to those with a need to know. 



Information must be complete and accurate, including protection from any corruption or bias. Closely governing data access can help ensure data cannot be tampered with.

Information should be both accessible and usable when authorized users require it. After all, data is only valuable when it can be accessed and analyzed — it just needs to be accessible to the right entities and people.
