ISO / IEC 27001 Certification

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (also known as ISMS) is the international standard that sets out the specification for information security management. The standard enables organizations to securely manage assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties.

The primary distinction between ISO 27001 and ISO\r\n27002 is that the latter is intended to be used as a guide when choosing\r\nsecurity controls during the implementation of an information security\r\nmanagement system based on ISO 27001. Another significant distinction is that\r\ncorporations can obtain ISO 27001 certification but not ISO 27002\r\ncertification. 

The ISO 27001 framework was created to safeguard an organization's sensitive data. Therefore, ISO 27001 Certification is beneficial for every organisation that handles sensitive data, whether it is for profit or non-profit, small business, government, or private sector. ISO27001 is the global standard for information security management. 

The certification attests to the effectiveness of security measures and verifies the implementation of all policies. It provides a strategy that companies can apply to safeguard their data management. 

QRC provides auditing, risk assessment, gap assessment, documentation and remediation support for ISO 27001.

Any organization, both IT and non-IT that handles a huge amount of information and seeks to protect sensitive data can get certified for ISO 27001. Banks, Visa Offices, Chartered Accountant firms, and other industries that are vital to protecting its sensitive data from unauthorized disclosure, falsification, misuse, disclosure, modification – can get certified to ISO 27001.

ISO-27001 does require a fair amount of documentation of the ISMS itself and evidence that the ISMS is operating effectively. The additional work effort to produce and maintain the documentation is more than offset by the time saved by reductions in security incidents and third-party audits.

Several factors influence the project timeframe, still the entire process (preparation and certification) might take 4 to 14 months. Talk to our experts for a more detailed outlook for your project.

There are 114 controls in total from the Annex A 27001 standard, which are separated into 14 different categories. Organisations are not expected to implement all 114 controls, the controls are just possibilities to choose from and only the most suitable ones will be selected to meet the requirements of your organisations.

A copy of the ISO/IEC 27001 standard can be purchased from the International Organization for Standardization.

ISMS stands for “Information Security Management System” which is the title of the ISO 27001 standard. ISO 27001 is a list of common security controls (Security Policy framework, HR security, physical security, network security, etc.) and is used to effectively assess all aspects of an organisations.

ISO 27001 certification has a maximum validity of three years. After certification, there will be a surveillance audit each at the end of the first and second years. The next year will be the Re-certification audit.

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is the standard that specifies ISMS. In this process a third party can audit an ISMS and if satisfied that it is true can certify that an organization is compliant with this standard.

Risk assessment approach is a binding part of the PLAN (identify, analyze and evaluate the risks), DO (select, implement, and use controls to manage the risks), CHECK, and ACT cyclic process.

There are 7 Clause & 114 Controls.

Information Security Management System (ISMS) is based on a systematic business risk approach. ISMS are useful for the establishment, implementation and improvement of information security. It is also termed as an organizational approach to information security.
