Most organisations now rely on information systems to support all of their critical business processes. This dependency has led to an evolving risk from electronic security threats such as hacking, data loss, breach of confidentiality and even terrorism. These increasingly sophisticated attacks can come from individuals, private organisations or even clandestine foreign intelligence agencies. When these attacks result in loss of information, theft of confidential data or damage to critical systems and documents, organisations can suffer severe consequences including financial repercussions and reputational risk.
WHAT IS ISO/IEC 20000?
ISO/IEC 20000 is the leading international IT service management system standard, with the objective to ensure the quality of the IT services your company delivers. It outlines requirements for setting up the management system and best practices for managing a company’s IT service.
ISO/IEC 20000 certification should not be confused with IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL). Although the ITIL describes best practices that can achieve the same level of service quality required by ISO/IEC 20000, ITIL certifications normally apply to individuals, while ISO/IEC 20000 enables the entire organisation to be certified.
WHY IS ISO/IEC 20000 IMPORTANT FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
An ISO/IEC 20000 certification assures your internal and external customers that your organisation will deliver IT services at a satisfactory level of quality. Benefits of ISO/IEC 20000 certification include:
- Cost-efficient, reliable and effective IT service management architecture
- Documentation of procedures
- Continuous improvement
- Avoidance of recurring errors and incidents through improved knowledge management
- Reduced costs caused by inefficiencies
- Objective, impartial evidence of the quality of your IT service
