The ISO 27001 standard is crucial for organisations looking to establish a robust framework for information security.
An ISMS (information security management system) that complies with ISO 27001 not only helps mitigate security risks but also enhances trust, helps legal and regulatory compliance, and provides a competitive advantage in an increasingly data-driven and interconnected business environment.
ISO/IEC 27001 is a global benchmark for information security, setting out the requirements for a robust ISMS. It deploys a risk-based approach,
covering people, processes and technology. Achieving ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that your organisation’s information security measures are aligned with internationally recognised best practice.
An ISMS systematically safeguards the confidentiality, integrity and availability of corporate information assets.
It consists of policies, procedures and other controls involving people, processes and technology. This provides an efficient way to keep your information assets secure, based on regular risk assessments and technology- and vendor-neutral approaches.

ISO 27001:2022 is the latest version of the standard. If you are currently certified to
ISO 27001:2013 or are planning to implement ISO 27001, click here.
How do you measure up against ISO 27001? You are very likely to have many of the ISO 27001 controls in place already.
Conducting an ISO 27001 gap analysis is an important starting point. It will identify your compliance gaps so you can implement the security measures you need as effectively and economically as possible.
Penetration testing is an essential component of every ISO 27001-compliant ISMS. It enables you to identify the technical vulnerabilities that put your organisation’s information assets at risk. Testing should be carried out regularly, from initial development to ongoing maintenance and continual improvement, in line with control objective 8.8.
Clause 7.2 of ISO 27001:2022 requires an organisation to ensure the competence of people doing work that affects its information security performance. Regular staff awareness training will ensure your staff have the knowledge and skills they need to ensure you achieve and maintain your ISO 27001 certification.
Failure to document your ISO 27001 policies and processes can lead to a nonconformity. Use our customisable documentation templates to create the records you need to achieve and maintain compliance with the Standard.
