The Main ISO27001 Guidelines
- Systematically examine the organization’s information security risks, taking account of the threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts.
- Design and implement a coherent and comprehensive suite of information security controls and/or other forms of risk treatment (such as risk avoidance or risk transfer) to address those risks that are deemed unacceptable.
- Adopt an overarching management process to ensure that the information security controls continue to meet the organization’s information security needs on an ongoing basis.
Need to Comply With ISO 27001?
ISO27001 Compliance in 6 Steps
1. Scope definition
Following a risk-based assessment, the scope of the ISMS (information security management security) is determined in detail.
2. ISMS audit planning
With the scope in hand, the audit is broken down in various areas of focus and technical information is gathered for each of them.
3. Systems audit
Through a formal security audit or a penetration test, information systems are analyzed in accordance with industry best practices to identify any security gaps that represent a risk.
4. Analysis of the findings
Evidence of each risk identified in the previous stage is compiled and analyzed to plan the implementation of the necessary corrective measures.
5. Validation (optional)
Once the corrective measures have been properly applied, another round of security assessments is done to validate their proper implementation.
6. Final reporting
Each step of the process is arranged into a final report that details: the scope of the ISMS, the findings, the extent of the work performed and the conclusions.
