ISO27001:2013 Health Check – Making the most of the new Standard
Project Managers and ISMS Coordinators: Are you making the most of the possibilities that ISO 27001:2013 certification offers?
For those organisations that want to get ahead of the game, IT Governance has exactly what you need. Our ISO27001:2013 Health Check service gives you the opportunity to have your organisation’s information security assessed against the requirements of a recognised, universally accepted standard, ISO27001:2013.
Enabling organisations to harness the value of ISO27001 certification
The 2013 version of the standard is ideal for newcomers to ISO27001 due to its seamless integration with other management standards and less rigorous approach to control sets, risk management and choice of continual improvement methodologies. There are numerous advantages that can be harnessed through exploiting the greater flexibility that the 2013 version offers, such as enabling new business opportunities, providing greater protection against information security breaches and cyber crime, and positioning your organisation as a company that takes information security seriously.
International standards guru, Alan Calder of IT Governance, and Director of Training & Consultancy, Steve Watkins, have designed this Health Check to move your organisation into a new stage of information security compliance, in line with global shifts towards more responsibility information security management.

Our world renowned team of experts will deliver the following services at your premises:
- Conduct an assessment of your current information security controls, policies and procedures
- Compare the results of the assessment with the requirements of ISO27001:2013

New to ISO27001 certification?
The Health Check is the ideal tool for those new to ISO27001. This service is of practical benefit to those organisations seeking to adopt ISO27001 and gain certification for the first time, to improve their cyber security defences, to meet supply chain assurance and regulatory requirements and to demonstrate their commitment to information security to their clients and customers.
Already ISO27001 certificated and transitioning from ISO27001:2005 to ISO27001:2013?
The Health Check is not only aimed at those new to ISO27001. The Health Check is also the ideal service for organisations that are already ISO27001 certificated who wish to get a solid understanding of which aspects of their current ISMS they would need to adjust in order to meet the revised requirements of the new standard ISO27001:2013. The Health Check will review the security control requirements, giving specific guidance on where they have been adopted and what, if any, improvements are likely to be required.
What our clients say:
It is our aim at IT Governance to assist organisations in achieving ISO 27001 certification as quickly, and cost effectively as possible. Here is a sample of customers who have employed IT Governance ISO 27001 consultancy services:
"IT Governance was able to guide our implementation team from the initial phases; from suitably informed management support, to scoping, planning, communication, risk assessment, control selection, documentation, and testing … right up to the external audit by our chosen certification body, Bureau Veritas, leading to certification. Each step required us to understand what was being asked of us, and IT Governance consultants were there to ensure that we were ready."
- Mike Fegan, Tribal.
"Having IT Governance on hand to guide our swift adoption of the ISO27001 Standard and provide ongoing expert support has been invaluable. They really understood the needs of a technology enterprise like ours.”
- Paul Green, Wirefast.
