ISOQAR > ISO 27001

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is an internationally acclaimed framework for information security management. ISO 27001 is applicable to all sectors of industry and commerce and addresses the security of information in whatever form it is held.

Whatever form the information takes, or means by which it is shared or stored, ISO 27001 helps you ensure it is always appropriately protected to assist with the preservation of:
  • Confidentiality – ensuring that access to information is appropriately authorised
  • Integrity – safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods
  • Availability – ensuring authorised users have access to information when required

Why seek ISO 27001 certification?

Obtaining a certificate from a third party certification body demonstrates that you have addressed, implemented and controlled the security of your information. ISO 27001 provides a framework to give assurance that an organisation’s information security measures are effective.

Once you decide to implement ISO 27001, the first step is to learn about its best practice recommendations and compare these to your existing processes. This will help you identify any gaps or weaknesses in your current quality management systems, and give practical advice on how to improve.

There are two main options for this stage – you can get one of our starter packs, or you can hire an ISO 27001 consultant to guide you through the process.

The next step is to plan how to introduce the key principles of quality management into your organisation.

Update or renew your processes according to the guidelines set out in the ISO 27001 standard, then communicate the changes internally. If you need extra support during this stage, an ISO 27001 consultant will be able to advise you and provide you with a gap analysis pre-assessment to make sure you’re ready for certification.

Once you and your consultant are satisfied that your quality management processes align with the principles set out in ISO 27001, it’s time to book your certification.

We will complete a full audit of your business processes. If they meet the requirements of ISO 27001, we will then issue you with certification.
