Here are some commonly asked questions about ISO 27001. If you’d like to learn more speak to one of our team.
ISO 27001 is an international standard that provides a framework for an information security management system (ISMS). The standard is designed to help organizations implement processes and controls to manage information security risk, which ensures the right governance is in place in relation to cyber and information security.
ISO 27001 can also help your business attract new customers, as this is often seen as a prerequisite to work with many organizations. Having ISO 27001 can also provide assurance to your clients that you have taken measures to manage cyber and information security risk, in addition to helping meet legal obligations regarding the protection of personal data.
To become certified to ISO 27001, an organization must implement the main clauses of the standard, which focus on identifying the scope of the certification, objectives, risk assessment and a process to govern cyber and information security. Following a risk assessment, controls to mitigate identified risks should be applied. Annex A of ISO 27001 provides a comprehensive set of controls, which include the development and implementation of policy, procedure and technical controls.
These controls must be implemented and managed on an ongoing basis. The certification process requires engaging a Certification Body (CB) and typically one who is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is recommended. This will involve a two-stage audit, the first stage focused on documentation and the second focused on the effectiveness of the controls implemented.
Bridewell leverage Azure DevOps heavily for our cloud-based security operations and associated managed services but we have also developed ISMS implementations and management leveraging Azure DevOps to develop Epic’s, use case and work items to build out operational security management activities that can be planned and assigned to team members.
Being able to organize ISMS activities into sprints and have associated dashboards to visualize planned work, enables our clients to have visibility of workloads and ensure key activities do not get missed. We leverage the Wiki function within Azure DevOps projects to provide dynamic policies, procedures and work instructions to support agile organizations that are familiar with the platform.
