The way in which you look after and use corporate information can mean the difference between success and failure for your business. Get it right and you’ll grow your customer-base. Get it wrong and the risks and penalties can stop you in your tracks.
ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that your business has systems in place to protect corporate information and data, whether this is online or offline. By gaining ISO 27001, customer and stakeholder confidence is increased and your company’s reputation is improved, allowing you to stand out amongst competitors.
By becoming ISO 27001 certified companies are showing a commitment to ensuring that adequate security controls are in place to protect information and data from being accessed, corrupted, lost or stolen.
Getting certified to ISO 27001 is quick and straightforward. Our expert consultants will work with you and your business to make the process as simple and easy as possible – highlighting and assisting you in making the necessary improvements to your current business processes.
Our 3 stage certification process ensures that you are assisted along every step in the process, and we even create your ‘Documented Information Security Management System’ for you, saving you time and money.
Once you have achieved certification you must pass an annual audit to make sure your business stays on track. This fourth and final, stage in the process happens one year after your certification.
To get more details on what it takes to get ISO 27001, please see our implementation guide.
Ask our team about our ISO 27001 checklist to find out more about what information you will need and what is needed to meet ISO 27001 requirements.
A QMS Consultant will visit your Organisation to review and document your current processes and procedures, highlighting any areas that do not meet the requirements of the Standard.
Now it's time to make sure any required process or procedural changes are made, as highlighted in the Review. QMS can provide templates to assist you in doing this.
Once you have achieved certification the certification cycle will commence. This is made up of surveillance and re-certification audits, one of which must take place each year, around the anniversary of your certification. These visits confirm your continued compliance with the Standard and verify the validity of your certification.
