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.
Setting up the required ISMS policy definitions according to the relevancy of our clients is the key element of this step. The relevancy depends on the domain and size of your organization. These policies always revolve around the best data security practices. Our ISO 27001 consultant will help you identify the best-suited policies for your business while providing constant expertise and support.
The team will work on defining the scope for each of these ISMS policies, a few of which are: Asset classification Business Continuity Plan Communication Management Compliance Environmental Security Information Security Incident Management Organization Security Operations Management Physical Security Security Policies Security Training For Employees System Access Controls System Acquisition System Maintenance
Once the scope of ISMS security policies has been established, we then help you evaluate the current security risks you have by using a tested-and-approved security risk assessment process.
After completing the gap analysis, our expert consultants will start working on the gap remediation, along with the remedy of identified vulnerabilities.
A statement of Applicability (SOA) is a document that contains 25 objectives and 114 comprehensive controls required in a business that is trying for ISO 27001. The key points of SOA include: Authentication Mechanisms Detailed Procedures Identified Roles Organization's Statement Of Policies Responsibility Guides Risk Management Plans
For every control and risk mitigation plan we address, we'll provide you with proper documentation that contains a formal justification for the risk assessments and their solutions.
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 all the appropriate controls effectively.
Once the controls are in place, we'll help you measure the effectiveness of each control, and measure their rate of success in terms of completion of control objectives. We help you measure the effectiveness of each control in terms of the completion of its objectives.
With the new and updated controls in place, all the employees of the organization need to be introduced to the new compliance system with proper training. This training procedure should include all the updated policies, and procedures and a rundown of the entire system, which will enable the employees to utilize the system to maximize its output.
Integrating ISMS controls is a critical step since we need to have records and substantial evidence of every occurrence within the integration process.
To ensure consistency of the ISO and ISMS controls, the system requires constant monitoring. The 3 vital steps are: Constantly monitoring the required controls of ISO and ISMS, as well as measuring them Verifying ISO and ISMS controls Providing procedural corrections based on the monitoring reports, ensuring continuous improvement.
We also provide the required training to stakeholders responsible for managing the ISO 27001 audit within the organization.
