Reputation, design, product bills, customer portfolio, trade secret, sales channels, corporate development structure, innovation measure the value of the organization brings different expansions. While there is a quantitative measurement of fixtures such as buildings, plots and belongings, the value of the information assets seen as virtual constitutes a large share which is difficult to measure.
If we find out that a bank, a telecom organization that receives personal information from us, the business stole our personal information, would we want to do business again?
The figures that may arise after the parties who have harmed this information are subject to compensation for damages, often reaching a fatal dimension above all the assets of the organization.
What’s the solution? Establishing a management system that will ensure the security of natural information, relieving responsibilities from personal dependencies and effective risk management.

Management systems are not just about wasting extra time, paper and registration, contrary to what some people think they are witnessing. It involves only those persons who are in charge of duty to change work in accordance with the requirements of ISMS. The gains can be calculated at the institution level where it is much higher. To give an example of the study change; a procurement specialist will make the procurement again, but in the supplier evaluation and contract preparation, it will rise to a higher level in accordance with the requirements of ISMS in order to meet the expectations of the customers and the institution. In addition, the security of the corporate information and protection of confidential information against other parties shall be guaranteed under the supplier agreement. Currently, these works are the approaches that a buyer should take and ensure that the system approach and corporate standards are applied by everyone in the same way.
So, is it worth the work? Product formulas, customer information, software codes, business methods, costs, such as passing the information to our competitors, our internet does not work for 2 days, contrary to the contract of customer files to other people, unlike other companies bring sanctions cannot easily remove.
