What is ISO 27001?

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 defines requirements that companies of any size can use to establish, implement, maintain and continually improve an information security management system.

Manufacturing companies that need to meet ISO 27001 compliance can easily prove their adherence to standards with Blumira’s new pre-built global reports.

Protecting Against Manufacturing Cybersecurity Risks

The manufacturing industry runs the risk of downtime due to ransomware attacks, which doubled in 2022 alone, targeting industrial infrastructure. They also could be at risk of intellectual property (IP) theft or extortion, if an attacker was able to compromise this type of data. Meanwhile, supply chain attacks also result in downtime, negatively impacting production.

How Can Blumira Help With ISO 27001?

Complying with ISO 27001 can help protect against manufacturing security risks with the ongoing use of an information security management system.

Blumira’s SIEM + XDR security platform helps your organization easily meet and exceed ISO 27001 compliance requirements for logging, monitoring, threat detection and response.

“I’ve worked with SIEMs for over 30 years; many collect logs, but analyzing them is time-consuming. I don’t have the staff dedicated to sit and read logs all day or with the skillset to analyze our data. We chose Blumira for its simplicity – I needed a solution that would simplify, consolidate and show me what I really need to see.”
– Jim Paolicelli, IT Director, Atlantic Constructors (see the full manufacturing case study)

By regularly running and scheduling Blumira’s ISO 27001 reports, you can easily prove your compliance to an auditor for certain controls.
