Handy Info Security Resources For You

Over the last few posts we have talked about the importance of information security, how ISO 27001 sets the standards for the organisation of information security, and changes you may need to make in order to meet that standard.

We understand that organisations have frantically busy times when the to-do list lengthens and security may not be your main focus but your organisation’s security is not something you can push to one side.

To save you time, we have hand selected a number of resources on information security and controls which will help you learn more about information security and how to implement it in your organisation.
