ISO 27001 is an international standard on how to manage information security. After an enterprise attains the ISO 27001 certification, International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) recognize the information security system of the enterprise. This certification indicates that the enterprise has the ability to provide safe, reliable information services. Security Center provides the ISO 27001 compliance check feature. This feature can help your enterprise attain the ISO 27001 certification. This topic describes the check items supported by the feature and how to view the results of the compliance checks.

Background information

You do not need to manually perform ISO 27001 compliance checks. When you open the ISO 27001 Compliance Check tab, Security Center automatically performs an ISO 27001 compliance check and provides the latest compliance results.


All editions of Security Center support this feature. For more information about the features that each edition supports, see Feature.
