ISO 27001 Compliance

Being able to demonstrate ISO 27001 compliance isn’t a mandatory requirement for your business. However, as cyber attacks and threats increase, strengthening the resolve of your business to protect your information security and sensitive data can be invaluable. 

Achieving ISO 27001 compliance can be a key difference maker for the safety of your business, and your success against competitors within your industry. But, with the knowledge of what it takes to achieve and maintain compliance, certification can be easier to come by. 

By partnering with Citation ISO Certification, we can help you achieve and maintain compliance. To find out the cost of ISO 27001, fill out our enquiry form and we’ll send a bespoke ISO 27001 quote directly to your inbox.


What is ISO 27001 Compliance?

To be compliant with ISO 27001, meeting the international Standard for information security management is crucial. Developing controls, processes and measures that can identify and evaluate the level of risk against the criteria of the Standard is the key factor. 

Let’s face it, a business that doesn’t perceive information security and data as a priority can’t be trusted fully. If your customers, partners and stakeholders don’t have confidence in your ability to protect important information, it’s not a good look for your business and it will only serve to tarnish your reputation as a credible organisation. 

But, that’s where we can help with our tailored ISO 27001 support, helping you meet all the compliance requirements you need to get that all-important certification for ISO 27001 and take your business to the next level.


Your ISO 27001 compliance checklist

So, what’s the secret to compliance? Well, there are no hidden details – but we recommend that you follow our ISO 27001 compliance checklist below: 

  • A holistic approach across all areas of your business to ensure complete transparency 
  • Conduct regular audits, gap analysis and risk assessment to close any gaps in your ISMS
  • Always keep a record of all relevant documentation to showcase to auditors 
  • Develop policies that help monitor scope frequently to maintain continuous improvement
  • Involve senior management and key stakeholders

We’ll help you achieve compliance with ISO 27001

We take an individual approach to each business that we partner with, making sure that every aspect is covered in detail. Our objective is to help your organisation meet the requirements of ISO 27001 effectively and stay compliant. 

Our initial audit will look at the way you currently protect information and compare this with international best practice. In effect, this will be an ISO 27001 risk assessment to highlight areas that need attention. We’ll also identify any unique risks to your company’s information security. 

We’ll then work with you to create a bespoke ISMS that meets the needs of your business. Our team of experienced ISO consultants will help you deliver an effective ISMS in as little as 45 days. We’ll then support you through the regular reviews and follow-up audits. 

  1. Informal review of your ISMS, which includes checking the existence and completeness of key documents such as:
  • The security policy of your business
  • The measures you’ll take to treat any identified risks
  • A Statement of Applicability (SOA).

2) Independent certification audits to check your ISMS meets the requirements specified in ISO 27001. These are usually conducted by independent ISO 27001 lead auditors. 

3) Regular reviews and audits to confirm that your organisation continues to comply with the ISO 27001 Standard and that your ISMS continues to operate as specified and intended.
