What is ISO 27001 Certification?

ISO 27001 was developed to provide guidance on implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an information security management system (ISMS). ISO 27001 is technology-neutral and uses a risk-based approach. The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard, and its accompanying standard, ISO/IEC 27002:2013 contain 14 control objectives in addition to the management framework required to achieve certification. The 14 control objectives include:

  1. Information Security Policies
  2. Organization of Information Security
  3. Human Resources Security
  4. Asset Management
  5. Access Control
  6. Cryptography
  7. Physical & Environmental Security
  8. Operations Security
  9. Communications Security
  10. System Acquisition, Development & Maintenance
  11. Supplier Relationships
  12. Information Security Incident Management
  13. Information Security Aspects of Business Continuity Management
  14. Compliance

What does it mean to be ISO 27001 Certified?

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized Information Security Management framework. Certification requires:

  • A mature risk assessment and treatment program
  • An internal audit and management review process to ensure continuous monitoring and improvement
  • Effective security awareness training
  • Continual improvement initiatives
  • A comprehensive set of security controls.

Obtaining the ISO/IEC 27001 certification involves a multi-stage security audit, including an initial review of the company’s ISMS, followed by an in-depth, formal audit of the company’s ISMS and controls supporting the 14 control objectives and related controls referenced in Annex A. Additionally, the company must complete an annual surveillance review / audit to confirm that the organization maintains compliance with the Standard and demonstrates continual improvement in their ISMS and related controls.
