ISO27001 - "Information technology — Security techniques — Information security management systems — Requirements"

How will ISO 27001 help my business?


At the simplest level it will give your clients and suppliers the confidence to trust your organisation with the safe keeping of their data. It demonstrates due diligence, compliance, regulatory and contractual requirements regarding data security, privacy and IT governance.



Why do I need certification?


Independent audit is a critical part of the ISO concept as it adds objectivity and credibility into the process. Self-regulation is critical for the ongoing success of any ISO, but it is an independent audit that proves without a doubt that the ISO standard has been properly embedded throughout your organisation.



How does my business gain ISO 27001 certification?


Most businesses start their ISO journey with 9001 as this puts into place quality management systems and processes which can be further developed to incorporate data security or other standards.


The certification process is very similar to ISO 9001, working on the principles of:


  1. "Say What It Does" – document day to day operating procedures and systems
  2. "Do What It Says" – work in accordance with those procedures and systems
  3. "Prove It" – with a certification audit which confirms, from records, that the procedures and systems meet the requirements of ISO 27001 and are operated in accordance with the standard.
