ISO 27001 Information Security Policy

The ISO 27001 information security policy is your main high level policy. This policy sets the principles, management commitment, the framework of supporting policies, the information security objectives and roles and responsibilities and legal responsibilities. This is the policy that you can share with everyone and is your window to the world.

You are going to have a suite or pack of policies that are required by ISO 27001 and make good sense for a governance framework. Each policy whilst it can be in one mahoosive document is best placed into its own document. By having separate documents:

  • They are easy to assign and owner to keep up to date and implement
