ISO 27001 comprises standards to help keep information assets secure and safe. This aids in organizing, managing, and maintaining the security of an organization’s assets; such as financial information, employee details, and intellectual property. ISO 27001 comprises a series of international standards compiled for information security and focuses on requirements against which an organization’s Information Security Management System (ISMS) can be audited. ISMS is a framework comprising policies and procedures, which includes an organization’s legal, technical, and physical controls in evaluating information risk management processes.
ISO 27001 is not mandatory; however, this certification helps to ensure best industry practices. Any organization, such as banks, hospitals, educational institutions, government, defense, and retail, can undergo ISO 27001 audits. ISO 27001 helps organizations to keep pace with security breaches, vulnerability threats, and business affects, allowing organizations to implement standard procedures.
ISO 27001 explicitly deals with the management of security processes involved in an organization. This caters to information security controls and needs to be evaluated in a timely manner. Not having ISO 27001 not only increases information security risks but also places an organization’s credibility at stake.
TechForing helps you in evaluating and successfully completing ISO 27001 audits. Our experts closely work with your teams to set up seamless processes and provide the required, well-documented evidence. We train the concerned stakeholders to prepare for audits and help organizations complete audit evaluation reports.
We break down every critical step into several sections and subsections, and take a methodical approach, as mentioned below:
Based on an organization’s domain and the size of the organization, it is crucial to first setup the required and relevant ISMS policy definitions. These will revolve around best security practices and are critical for data security. There are several factors affecting ISMS policies; we will help you define the ISMS policies and identify which are best suited for your business aim, while maintaining support.
Once ISMS policies have been planned, we define the scope for each of these ISMS policies. These could include business continuity plan, system access controls, physical security, environmental security, compliance, system acquisition, system maintenance, information security incident management, organization security, asset classification, security policies, communication management, security training for employees, and operations management. We provide help in segregating and defining the scope for each of these ISMS policies in terms of processes to be implemented.
On completion of the ISMS policies scope, we help you evaluate security risk by using a defined method for security risk assessment. This is based on complete organizational structuring and implemented methodologies within the organization.
Our team of qualified experts in ISO 27001 will work in collaboration with your team to provide remediation for the identified security risks.
For ISO 27001, SOA plays a crucial role and we guide you to prepare for SOA. This includes an organization’s statement of policies, detailed procedures, responsibility guides, identified roles, risk management plans, and authentication mechanisms.
We help you provide documents for each of the controls and give a business justification for each of the risk mitigation plans. A formal process is established and managed, as per ISO 27001 compliance standards. We summarize a risk treatment plan to define how controls based on SOA are to be implemented.
We help you measure the effectiveness of each control and measure the completion of control objectives.
There is a list of mandatory and non-mandatory documents which are required as part of the ISO audits. This is a core part of the audit. Our team helps you implement these controls effectively.
Once the controls are implemented, an organization also needs to train its employees about the importance of new policies and procedures.
This is an operational part of the audit, and for each detail, a record or substantial evidence is required. We guide the entire organization on how to implement the new policies and procedures in the day-to-day working environment.
For every ISO control, the organization needs to monitor and measure the ISMS controls, verify, and provide procedure correction based on the findings. We help you manage all of this.
We also provide the required training to stakeholders responsible for managing the ISO 27001 audit within the organization.
