ISO 27001 Compliance & Certification

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 specifies the requirements for the policies, procedures and processes that comprise a company’s information security management system (ISMS). This international standard was developed to provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an ISMS.

Addressing ISO 27001 compliance and certification

ISO 27001 uses a top-down, risk-based approach. Earning certification in this standard is not based on adhering to a set of predetermined rules. Instead, an organization is certified based on a set of controls that are specific to its risks. These controls comprise the company’s Statement of Applicability, a document that ISO auditors use to certify against.

ISO 27001 certification is not a checkbox list of requirements. It’s an ongoing process of cataloging risks, assessing the severity of risks, applying controls, planning for remediation, and providing evidence that an organization is performing the tasks it identified as important to its risk management. The certification also requires organizations continually improve their operations from a risk-based perspective.
