ISO27001 Audits and readiness
We have never left a client with a copy and pasted policy or process, nor do we implement unnecessary controls.
ISO27001 audits are considered expensive and time-consuming, which they can be at times, however, there is a right way to use the standard to deliver real benefit, not just tick boxes. The best part of doing it this way is that it doesn’t introduce additional time and in the long run, works out cheaper and more effectively.
We work with you to identify the drivers for ISO27001 and carry out an exercise to understand your business and deliver an ISMS that serves a purpose and reduces risk consistently, not just when the audits come around in an agile fashion.
After we have carried out the initial gap analysis we carry out remediating activities in short sprints to ensure we are moving at pace. Following our tested methodology, each deliverable has a recorded business benefit.
Due to the varied audit scope of different businesses, we don’t offer a fixed price, however, please get in touch with us and we will provide you with a quote based on your requirement.
While the ISO27001 standard was established to provide a model for developing, implementing, operating, reviewing and improving the Information Security Management System (ISMS), it is not a one-size-fits-all approach.
The ISO 27001 standard operates under the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) model.
Plan: Establish an ISMS policy complete with objectives, procedures, and processes that are relevant to managing risk and enhancing information security.
Do: Establish and operate ISMS policy, procedures, processes, and policies.
Check: Monitor and review ISMS. Measure performance against ISMS objectives, policies, and practical experience.
Act: Based on the results of the internal ISMS audit, take the necessary steps for corrective and preventive measures.
