The ISO 27001 standard is an internationally recognized framework for information security management systems (ISMS). It outlines how organizations should build ISMSs to achieve full-scale data security. 

ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard for information security management developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

An ISMS can be certified compliant with the ISO/IEC 27001 standard by an accredited registrar or an accredited certification body (CB).

The ISO/IEC 27001:2022 standard contains 93 security controls to help organizations establish, implement, and maintain an information security management system.

An ISO 27001 certified information security management system (ISMS) is a framework and set of processes an organization must implement to effectively manage and protect its information assets. An ISO 27001 certified ISMS corresponds to the requirements outlined in the ISO/IEC 27001 standard. 

An ISO 27001 certification indicates that the organization passed a thorough evaluation and validation of its ISMS’s effectiveness in safeguarding sensitive information against security threats.

Yes, according to the ISO/IEC 27001:2022 standard, risk management is key for building an effective information security management system (ISMS). 

Ekran System is ISO 27001 risk management software that helps you mitigate security risks in your organization and comply with the requirements of ISO 27001. 

Implementing ISO 27001 controls involves establishing, monitoring, and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS). To do it, use this step-by-step guide:

  1. Develop an ISMS policy that aligns with your organization’s objectives and the requirements of the ISO 27001 standard.
  2. Identify, assess, and prioritize information security risks, taking into account their likelihood and impact on your organization.
  3. Based on the risk assessment results, identify the ISO 27001 controls your organization is currently lacking.
  4. Create security procedures for implementing each required security control.
  5. Implement security controls by using dedicated IT solutions, such as compliance management software for ISO 27001. 
  6. Conduct regular audits to evaluate the effectiveness of the ISMS and make amendments.
  7. If certification is required, pass an external audit with an accredited certification body. 

Conducting a risk assessment is one of the steps to prepare for a ISO 27001 audit. You can assess risk in your organization by following the next steps: 

  1. Choose an approach to risk management. In general, you can choose between qualitative and quantitative approaches. With the qualitative approach, you need to explore various scenarios and answer “what if” questions to identify risks. With the quantitative approach, you use data and numbers to define risk levels.
  2. Identify risks. List your most sensitive information assets and specify the risks that could potentially affect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of those assets.
  3. Analyze risks. Assess the likelihood of each identified risk and how they could impact your business. Take into consideration such impacts as financial and reputational losses, fines and lawsuits, etc. 
  4. Prioritize risks. Based on the likelihood and potential impact of those risks, prioritize them from the highest to lowest acceptable level of risk.
  5. Build a risk treatment plan. Think of how to reduce the likelihood of risks and prevent triggering circumstances. As well, decide on what risks can be managed by third parties and what risks are acceptable.
  6. Write a risk report. Summarize and document each step of your risk evaluation process. 

Conduct a risk assessment regularly to improve your information security management system. 

To get certified with ISO/IEC 27001, you need to complete a series of steps:

  1. Study the ISO/IEC 27001:2022 standard and its requirements. 
  2. Assess your organization’s current information security practices against the requirements of the standard to identify gaps. 
  3. Implement necessary security controls and develop security policies and procedures to eliminate all the gaps. You can leverage ISO 27001 management software, such as Ekran System to facilitate the process of compliance.
  4. Conduct internal audits to assess the effectiveness of your organization’s ISMS and make improvements.
  5. Contact an accredited certification body to pass Stage 1 and Stage 2 audits and get certified. 

Once your organization gets an ISO 27001 certification, it’s valid for three years. However, you still need to manage and maintain your ISMS during this period. Make sure to review and update your security policies and procedures and use dedicated ISO 27001 software to implement all the requirements of the standard. This will show that your organization still complies with the standard during auditors’ annual surveillance visits. 

Even after receiving the ISO 27001 certification, you need to make ongoing efforts to maintain compliance with the ISO 27001 standards. Therefore, make sure to:

  • Conduct regular risk assessments to identify new threats, vulnerabilities, and changes in the risk landscape. 
  • Monitor and review the effectiveness of implemented controls and update them when needed.
  • Conduct regular internal audits to assess the effectiveness of the ISMS and make corrections to address any identified issues.
  • Stay tuned for updates in the ISO 27001 standard and adapt your ISMS accordingly.
  • Pass annual surveillance audits to demonstrate compliance. 

A dedicated ISO 27001 software solution like Ekran System can help you get certified with ISO/IEC 27001:2022 as well as maintain compliance with the standard.
