ISO27001 Lead Audit

ISO 27001 Lead Audit

As an ISO27001 Accredited Business, Spector is well equipped to consult businesses on successfully passing their audits.

This International Standard has been prepared to provide requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS).

Why pursue this certification?

ISO 27001 is a globally recognised standard for information security management systems. It sets out the requirements against an organisation’s ISMS which can be certified. Achieving certification requires an independent audited verification to ensure the ISMS are managed in line with the standard.

ISO 27001 requires the organisation to outline its cybersecurity program in a Master Security Policy, and then prove it is driven by the organisation’s governance structure.

It shows that a business is operating at the highest level in terms of risk management.

Obtaining the Certification

The two critical steps of an ISO 27001 implementation are the risk assessment and risk treatment plan, which are better detailed in our article Building your Asset and Risk Register. These ensure adequate controls are in place for information assets, and that they are based on actual threats and vulnerabilities.

The information security management system preserves the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information by applying a risk management process. It gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed.

We have the Framework and the documentation to make the process a lot more streamlined and cost-effective.

NIST vs ISO27001: which to choose?

Picking the one that best suit your business

NIST and ISO27001 can both indicate high level standards in an organisation’s compliance and cyber security structure. However, they are different in their essence and in what they offer for a business, as one is a framework and the other a certification.

Which one should you pursue, and how? Learn more with our article and get in touch if you have any questions!
