IT Governance launches ISO 27001 Internal Audit package to help SMEs secure experienced auditors

28/06/2016

IT Governance, the global leader in cyber security and ISO 27001 expertise, is pleased to announce the launch of a new ISO 27001 Internal Audit package designed to help SMEs outsource their internal audits to experienced internal ISO 27001 information security management system auditors.
 
The ISO 27001 Internal Audit Service enables SMEs to outsource their internal audit to a qualified auditor with expertise in ISO 27001 and the audit process. This service helps organisations gain the assurance that they meet the Standard’s requirements and the demands of stakeholders and clients.
 
Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, says: “Internal audits can be challenging to undertake without the experience of an audit professional. Small to medium-sized businesses often lack the resources or in-house expertise to carry out a successful ISO 27001 internal audit. This new packaged solution gives SMEs the opportunity to get a qualified and experienced lead auditor on board, with both the knowledge of current audit practices and practical implementation experience to meet ISO 27001’s requirements.”  
 
The ISO 27001 Internal Audit service package delivers a detailed audit report highlighting any nonconformities identified to help SMEs meet the ISO 27001 requirements for an objective and impartial audit process. Moreover, the report provides the required assurance about whether the information security management system (ISMS) conforms to management’s requirements and to those of ISO 27001.
 
The internal audit service includes a documentation review, a follow-up review to confirm that the corrective actions raised during any previous audits have been closed, a walk-through of the organisation to observe the implementation of management system requirements, interviews with relevant key staff, and the production of an internal audit report that presents a summary of all the nonconformities, ready for management review.
