ISO/IEC 27017 & 27001: Uniting Cloud Security and Information Security

ISO/IEC 27017 is a well-structured framework for securing cloud-based settings and diminishing the risk of security incidents. Incorporating ISO 27017 information security controls into your ISO 27001 – ISMS demonstrates the maturity of your cloud organization’s information security environment.

ISO/IEC 27017 guides the information security elements of cloud computing, proposing the implementation of cloud-specific information security controls that enhance the recommendations of the ISO/IEC 27002 and ISO/IEC 27001 standards. This code of practice gives more detailed security control implementation guidelines for cloud service providers.

Why go with ISO/IEC 27017?

Cloud computing offers many benefits, but also has security challenges such as data breaches, unauthorized access, loss of control, and compliance issues. ISO/IEC 27017 is a standard that gives guidance and best practices for information security controls for cloud services. 

It helps both cloud service providers and cloud service customers to protect their data and assets in the cloud, and to comply with legal and contractual requirements. By following ISO/IEC 27017, you can show your dedication to information security and gain an advantage in the cloud market.

To Whom Does it Apply?

Today many businesses offer customers cloud-based services, so purchasing departments increasingly demand evidence that data stored on those cloud servers are safe. As ISO/IEC is a set of guidelines for safeguarding cloud-based environments and minimizing the potential risk of security incidents, this standard gives that confidence to the customers.

With the help of ISO/IEC 27017, you can show clients that you incorporate the most stringent cloud security standards and have procedures to manage unforeseen issues. So, the ISO 27017 standard is relevant to all the organizations that provide cloud-based services and for any organization that stores data subjects’ information in the cloud.

Benefits of ISO/IEC 27017

By following the ISO/IEC 27017 principles, you may quickly identify vulnerabilities and mitigate against data breaches, as well as regulatory fines and penalties.

An independent third-party audit demonstrates your commitment to global information security procedures. You get a competitive edge by gaining stakeholder trust since potential investors and consumers see you as a trustworthy partner.

It describes the precise connection, roles, rights, and obligations between cloud service consumers and cloud service providers, allowing you to establish yourself as a preferred CSP and develop your business globally.
