ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized security standard used to assess information security management systems (ISMS). An ISMS is a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organization’s information risk management processes.
ISO 27001 provides a model to help organizations set up and operate their information security management system. Demonstrating compliance with this standard confirms your company maintains a mature, reliable security program for customers, partners, stakeholders, and board members. It uses these specific requirements to help organizations manage risks.
With an ISMS that’s been certified as ISO 27001-compliant, you’re showing the world that your organization can secure all forms of information while lowering your risk of a cyberattack or data breach. The process also helps to consolidate and reduce cybersecurity costs now and as you plan for future budgets. This strategy for cohesive, organization-wide security is one of the world’s most accepted security standards and a global benchmark for strong security practices.
For official certification in the ISO 27001 standard, organizations first need to go through their entire ISMS to ensure all the requirements are met. Then, an accredited auditor from a firm specializing in this standard is contracted to conduct the audit. The auditor is prohibited from advising you on how to meet the ISO 27001 standards. In order to ensure a successful audit, you may receive guidance from an advisor who is unaffiliated with the auditor.
The Truvantis team acts as an experienced advisor to companies preparing for an ISO 27001 audit. Whether you’re just beginning to explore these controls or are looking to shore up gaps in an advanced, complex ISMS, we can help by performing a gap analysis to determine where you need further controls in place. Then, we can help you to build, operate, and monitor your system before, during, and after your official audit and certification.
