What types of businesses will benefit from Certification to the ISO 27001:2013 Standard?

What types of businesses will benefit from Certification to the Standard?

Information Security is an essential component to the successful operation of any business in the growing world of technology. Any business that wants to protect and preserve their information via implementation of an effective Information Security Management System will benefit from the implementation of the Standard.

Certification will ensure that important data and confidential information is protected, by verifying that a systematic method of managing confidential information is in place and effective.

The requirements of ISO 27001 can be tailored to apply to the business’ size, type, needs and existing information management processes. It helps to identify the risks to the important information and put in place the appropriate controls to help reduce the risk.

Businesses will also benefit from Certification to the Standard where they:

  • need or want to demonstrate this commitment to stakeholders,
  • want to demonstrate this innovative and forward-thinking approach to their customers and their marketplace, and/or
  • want to achieve a competitive advantage, including the trust of customers and stakeholders as being recognised as an industry leader.

How the Certification Process Works

Firstly, we’ll work with you to determine exactly which Standards and Certifications are right for your business, what you want to achieve out of the process for your business, and identify any deadlines you need to achieve Certifications by. This is your chance to get all your questions answered!

Then we’ll go through with you what you already have in place and how effective you think it is, and what you’d like to see change. Depending on what you already have, the next step might be a Gap Analysis against the requirements of the Standard – this will give us a to-do list of what needs to be done before commencing the formal Certification process.

When it’s time for your Certification Audit, it’s conducted in two stages:

Stage 1 (Readiness Review) is a full review of your business processes and documented information to ensure all requirements of the Standard (relevant to your business) have been addressed.
Stage 2 (Certification Audit) is an assessment conducted at your office (and project sites, if applicable) to ensure that you actually do what your processes and documented information say you do.
All Certifications run on a three-year cycle, usually with audits 12 months apart, so, this initial audit process is then followed by:

Year 2: Surveillance Audit
Year 3: Surveillance Audit

Then we start again with a Triennial Audit, followed by two annual Surveillance Audits, and the cycle continues…
