ISO 27001 Compliance

ISO 27001 Certification & Compliance

ISO/IEC 27001:2013, or more commonly known as ISO 27001, is designed to protect information and its integrity in an organization of any size. The certification can be achieved by following Information Security Management System (ISMS) guideline and completing an official audit. While not mandatory, there are many benefits to getting ISO 27001 certified. For example, it can supplement other compliances and standards like HIPAA, PCI DSS, FFIEC, FISMA etc. Getting an ISO certification can also increase your business reputation as ISO standards are highly respected. Finally, ISMS has some great information security best practices that are valuable for business continuity and growth.

Teramind for ISO 27001 supports the operational requirements of many of the ISMS security guidelines. It helps organizations of any size conform with ongoing ISO standard requirements with its extensive user activity monitoring, data exfiltration protection, audit, reporting and forensics capabilities.

Teramind for ISO 27001 delivers solid information security benefits:

Monitoring and measurement

Teramind visually records every action that a user makes while on a machine for over 12 objects including screen, apps, websites, files, emails etc. But each object can be configured to take into consideration what needs to be monitored and measured and who have access to the monitored records. This allows for instant administrative viewing or retained as evidence to facilitate subsequent corrective actions.

Logs of user activities, exceptions and security events

As required by ISMS, Teramind keeps immutable logs of user’s access, keeps track of all activates and rule violation plus what action was taken. The records are encrypted and stored for as long as required and can only be accessed by authorized personnel.

Security rules and access control for users and third-party vendors

Teramind allows organization to create profiles for groups, departments and third- parties and then define what resource each profile can access. Further rules can be set up by behavior policies so that employee access to sensitive information is segregated by business requirements, or on a need to know basis. For example, you can setup a rule so that only Sales Department is allowed access to the CRM database. Rules can also be created to notify management of any observable privileged user activity, such as making changes to system configuration or accessing restricted data.

Internal audit, incident management procedure and corrective actions

Detailed alerts for all users can be viewed including any security incidents and what actions were taken. Warning messages can be configured to inform the users about nonconformity and influence corrective behavior. Session recordings and history playback can be used to view user’s desktop for forensic investigation.

Risk assessment and treatment

Teramind has a dedicated Risk dashboard where management can conduct organization-wide risk assessment. Risk can be profiled by employees, departments or by system objects. Reports can be derived by severity of risks or by how many times security violations occurred. Unique Risk Scores allows you to identify high-risk employees or policies so that plans can be developed for treating the risks.

Information security awareness and training

The insights derived from the various reports and session recordings can be used to train employees. Etiquette rules can be created to train new employees about information security best practices.
