What Is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is a series of information management standards developed by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) in conjunction with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Taking the place of the previous ISO/IEC 27001:2005, the ISO 27001 lists those auditable requirements related to Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) that an organization must adhere to in order to remain compliant.

As part of your business operations, your organization may collect, store, transmit, or process sensitive information gathered from your customers. As a result, you will need to establish a set of security controls and objectives based on specific operations to handle risk management of this information. Your organization may voluntarily adopt ISO 27001 standards into your policies and procedures to keep this information secure.

What Is ISO 27002?

ISO 27002 is a guideline based on ISO 27001. It is not a certification process, but a guide for selecting the right controls to build the foundation of your organization’s ISMS. It outlines key standards and industry best practices related to implementing and managing in a given information security risk environment.

Our ISO 27001 Services

I.S. Partners, LLC can perform an ISO 27001 Risk Assessment that provides a clear understanding of the gaps between your company’s current information security policies and systems management processes and the controls related to the ISO 27001 framework, and will provide a phased roadmap empowering your company to close those gaps. We will examine targeted objectives of your ISMS to see if your controls align with established ISO 27001 standards.

An ISO 27001 Risk Assessment includes:

  • Project planning to ensure that expectations, timelines and deliverables are appropriately managed
  • Interviews with process owners to determine the company’s current IT environment and information security management and system administration processes
  • Analysis of the results, and preparation of a detailed technical summary and risk matrix
  • Issuance of a security assessment report to company management
