What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 was first published in 2005 by the International Standardization Organization, known as ISO. ISO is an international agency that consists of a national standard body for more than 150 countries. The ISO 27001 standard is an agreement for compliance within an Information Security Management system. ISO 27001 establishes a security framework based on Clauses and Controls which provide a baseline.
ISO 27001 Clauses and Controls
This complex standard can be broken down into three over-arching requirements:
Systematically examining your organization's information security risks by taking into account threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts.
Designing and implementing a coherent and comprehensive suite of information security controls and/or other forms of risk treatment (such as risk avoidance or risk transfer) to address those deemed as unacceptable.
Adopting an overall management process to ensure that information security controls continue to meet your organization's needs on an ongoing basis.

The Importance of ISO 27001
ISO 27001 is an Information Security Management System (ISMS) that provides security control baselines. In addition, ISO 27001 extends the scope of security controls to non-IT information assets (such as paperwork and proprietary knowledge). Even if business continuity planning and physical security are independent from already established IT, ISO 27001 works to consolidate information security across a company. By complying with ISO 27001, your company can rest assured that safe security practices have been systematically designed, implemented and adopted.
