In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, where data is immensely valuable, ensuring the security of information has never been more important. With the alarming increase in cybercrime and ever-evolving threats, organisations need a robust framework to protect their data and manage associated risks effectively. Coople recognises the importance of information security and has taken a significant step by achieving ISO/IEC 27001 certification. In this blog article, we’ll explain what ISO/IEC 27001 is and why it is essential in the current digital era.

What is ISO/IEC 27001?

ISO/IEC 27001 is the world’s most renowned standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). It serves as a comprehensive framework that outlines the requirements an ISMS must meet. This international standard provides guidance to organisations of all sizes and industries, helping them establish, implement, maintain, and continuously improve their information security management systems. It’s important to note that while the certification is given out by UK authority, the credentials also apply to Coople Switzerland as they are recognised internationally.

Achieving ISO/IEC 27001 certification means that an organisation has implemented a system to manage risks associated with data security effectively, in accordance with the best practices and principles outlined in the International Standard. In essence, ISO/IEC 27001 certification is a seal of approval that signifies an organisation’s commitment to safeguarding sensitive information and ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.

Why is ISO/IEC 27001 important?

In an era where cyber threats are continually evolving and becoming more sophisticated, managing cyber risks can be a daunting task. ISO/IEC 27001 provides a structured approach for organisations to become more risk aware. It encourages them to proactively identify and address vulnerabilities in their information security systems, thus minimising the risk of data breaches and cyber-attacks.

ISO/IEC 27001 encompasses a holistic approach and is not limited to just one aspect of information security. An ISMS implemented according to this standard is a tool for risk management, cyber resilience and operational excellence and involves the assessment of not only technology and systems but also people and policies. This comprehensive approach ensures that all aspects of an organisation’s information security ecosystem are considered and strengthened.

ISO/IEC 27001 is therefore not only about risk mitigation, but also about improving operational excellence. By adhering to the standards and best practices outlined in the standard, organisations can improve their operational efficiency and build trust with customers, partners and stakeholders.


Our recent achievement of ISO/IEC 27001 certification is testament to Coople’s commitment to protecting the security and integrity of its own data and that of its users.
