ISO 27001 - Information Security Management System (ISMS) - Implement/Audit

ISO 27001 What & Why?
Having a systematic approach to information security is the key to its success in any kind of an organization. A systematic approach which your auditors use, helps to anticipate threats to your organization's information assets, and develop plans to mitigate them. The best policy to follow in such a case is to adopt internationally accepted best practices instead of "reinventing the wheel". ISO 27001 is the most universally accepted standard for Information Security the world over.

ISO/IEC 27001 is the only auditable international standard which defines the requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The standard is designed to ensure the selection of adequate and proportionate security controls based on the risks the organization is exposed to.

This helps implementing organizations to protect your information assets by eliminating vulnerabilities.  It gives confidence to any interested parties, especially your customers. It is great tool for the identification of and compliance with applicable regulations. The ISO standard 27001 brings consistency in the entire organization's approach to information security making it highly manageable, whatever be the scale of operations. The standard adopts a process approach for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving the ISMS.

Certification Methodology
Gap Assessment and Scope Definition
Initial certification begins with a thorough understanding of your organization's posture, an assessment of the current information security state of your organization against ISO 27001 standards as well as defining the scope for ISO 27001 certification.

Pre-Audit Assessment
Defense IT Solutions ISO 27001 consulting team conducts an internal audit against the ISO 27001 standard and develops a corrective action report for the closure of the audit findings. We conclude with a confirmation of organization readiness for the external ISO 27001 certification.

Defense IT Solutions experts identify and select an external certification body, co-ordinate with certification auditors, as well as assist in the certification audit by providing all required documents and evidence for the auditor. We also provide full support to maintain your ISMS performance.

We also provide on-going support for the implementation team and advisory services. This includes one round of performance measurement to measure the effectiveness of ISMS implementation.

Risk Assessment
An information asset register is developed to reduce asset duplication, encourage greater efficiency and spot any potential risks. Risk assessment activities are used to identify and evaluate all possible security threats and vulnerabilities in the system before defining the risk appetite of the organization to plan for risk mitigation or treatment actions.

ISMS Framework Development
Defense IT Solutions experts develop the policies and procedures for ISMS (Information Security Management System) implementation. This includes the definition of governance structure for the organization's ISMS, developing the required process to support the ISMS implementation including policies and procedures and performance metrics to evaluate the ISMS implementation.
