What is ISO27001?
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (also known as ISO 27001) is the international standard for information security. It sets out the specification for an information security management system (ISMS).
Achieving accredited ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that your organisation follows information security best practices, and has successfully implemented an Information Security Management System, audited by an independent expert assessment. Being certified to ISO 27001 involves having an independent verification, at least once a year, that you control security appropriately.
Why do you need an ISO27001 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 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.
When we undertake a security assessment for your business, we examine every aspect of your IT environment and how users and IT administrators work with the IT systems. On completion of the assessment, we give a comprehensive written report which includes all our key findings and detailed prioritised remediation recommendations.
This can form the basis for strengthening a robust IT security strategy, in line with company risk management and security objectives. ISO 27001 helps you manage risks to your business from accidental or deliberate misuse of confidential information. Above all, complying with ISO 27001 provides you with a best practice framework for managing information security. Enhance reputation, business efficiency, customer satisfaction with our ISO 27001 certification.
Is this an ISO27001 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 ISO27001 Audit. Think of us as a learner driving instructor, helping you pass your official test.
Also, we carry out our ISO27001 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.
