ISO 27001: Dig into the details.

Learn about everything ISO 27001 from information security management systems to Annex A.

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is a framework for an organization’s ISMS, or information security management system. The ISMS establishes management processes, by means of information security controls, to address information and data security risks. The standard was originally published jointly by the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission in 2005 and then revised in 2013.

What is an information security management system?

An information security management system (ISMS) is a management framework of policies and procedures to keep confidential and sensitive information secure. It establishes a systematic approach to security through technologies, policies, procedures, systems, and processes. ISMSs are designed to manage information risks such as data leaks, cyberattacks, hacks, insider threats, or theft. An ISMS enables organizations to secure information in all its forms and increase their resilience to attacks.

An effective ISMS also helps businesses respond to evolving security threats to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the data it handles. Businesses can improve cybersecurity culture through ISMS’s integrated approach that covers people, processes, and technology. ISMS enables employees and partners to readily understand risks and embrace security controls in their working practices.

The ISO 27001’s focus on information security risk management and continuous improvement makes it the most widely recognized IT Security certification internationally.

Who should get an ISO 27001 Certification?

Any organization that handles electronic information and wants to secure that information can benefit from following ISO 27001 requirements. An ISO 27001 certification proves that your company is successfully complying with all aspects of the ISO 27001 framework.

How can my company receive ISO 27001 certification?

ISO 27001 certification is conducted by an independent third-party assessor. A successful certification audit results in an ISO 27001 certification.

Organizations stay ISO 27001 certified by ensuring their information security management systems (ISMSs) meet all ISO 27001 requirements. Apart from operating and updating their ISMSs, businesses should update documentation and policies to accommodate new products and requirements. Organizations should also conduct periodic risk assessment reviews as risks and threats evolve. In addition to documentation, ISO 27001 requires organizations to perform internal audit management reviews and take corrective actions on nonconformities.

Companies can maximize their ISO 27001 certification by investing in training programs for employees who can develop and maintain an ISMS internally. Employees can also become certified as an ISO 27001 Lead Implementer to help their organizations document and implement security-related requirements for ISO 27001 certification.

ISO 27001 certification is valid for three years, after which a company needs a surveillance audit and recertification. Attaining and maintaining the certification requires organizations to treat information security as a critical business process and to invest resources, effort, and time into ISO 27001 requirements on a year-round basis.

The cost of an ISO 27001 certification traditionally depended on various factors like training, technologies to be implemented and updated, external expertise, and the certification audit. Strike Graph’s approach puts everything you need within easy reach and tailors the process to your company’s unique risks, cutting the time and cost of ISO 27001 certification.
