What is ISO/IEC 27001?

ISO/IEC 27001 is an internationally recognised Information Security Management Standard. Formaly known as BS7799, ISO/IEC 27001 covers all areas of your business; from the physical security you have in place, to how you recruit your employees. Whilst it is not a presciptive technical standard, a large part of the standard does cover IT.

If implemented correctly, the standard works with your existing policies, proceses and procedures so you don't need to start from square 1. The Scope of the implementation may simply be a department within your organisation, or may include all departments and all physical sites.

What is involved?

The standard is is broken down into sections which come under either clauses or controls. There are 118 clauses that must be met in order to meet the standard and 133 controls. The controls are selected to suit your business. Any controls that are not selected must be justified.

When you have made the decision to adopt the standard, you may need the help from specialist consultants, such as ourselves, to assist you in acheiving the accreditation. We will discuss your needs and advise on the best approach to acheive your goals. During this process we will recommend a UKAS approved auditor to complete the final stage of the initial audit.
