What is ISO 27001?

ISO/IEC 27001 is the world’s best-known standard for information security management systems (ISMS). It defines requirements an ISMS must meet.

The ISO/IEC 27001 standard provides companies of any size and from all sectors of activity with guidance for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system.

Why Choose ISO27001 for your Organisation?

The purpose of ISO 27001 certification is to show your customers and prospects that security is a top priority for your business. While ISO 27001 is not legally required, your customers may need you to be certified before they can do business with you.

Conformity with ISO/IEC 27001 means that an organisation or business has put in place a system to manage risks related to the security of data owned or handled by the company, and that this system respects all the best practices and principles enshrined in this International Standard.

Why do you need an ISO 27001 IT Security Assessment?

You need to ensure that your IT security products, processes, and practices are effective, documented, and measurable. The methodology employed in conducting our Security Assessments is based on the ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 27001:2022 Information Security Standard combined with industry best practices and standards published by organisations such as the SANS Institute, the US National Institute of Standards and Technology, the US CERT Coordination Centre and the Centre for Internet Security.

Is this an ISO 27001 Audit?

Yes and no. In truth, there are very few organisations officially allowed to do an official ISO 27001 audit. What we do is, we use our expertise to make sure you pass your official ISO 27001 Audit. Think of us as a learner driving instructor, helping you pass your official test.

Also, we carry out our ISO 27001 assessments so organisations can align to ISO27001 giving their customers and partners confidents that they are doing everything they can to stay aligned to the standard without having to invest in actually getting the certification.

Whats the latest version of ISO 27001?

The latest versions of ISO 27001 and ISO 27002 were published in 2022. with a three-year transition period. This enables certified organisations to transition at their own speed from the 2013 version of the Standard to the 2022 one.

What is ISO27002?

ISO 27002 is a supporting standard that guides how the information security controls can be implemented. Note it is only possible to certify to ISO standards that end in a “1”.
