Man writing ISO 27001

Applying the principles of ISO 27001

Any organisation, whatever its size, sector or shareholder structure, can implement ISO 27001. The standard’s authors were all experts in the field of IT security management. As such, it provides an internationally accepted framework for implementing effective information security management.

All businesses can apply the principles of ISO 27001 by:

  • Defining a security policy
  • Defining the scope of the ISMS
  • Conducting a risk assessment
  • Managing identified risks
  • Selecting control objectives and controls to implement
  • Preparing a statement of applicability


Full ISO 27001 implementation and compliance with the standard is essential for any company seeking ISO 27001 certification. By gaining certification, you show that an independent body has confirmed your ISMS complies with the ISO 27001 standard.

Planning for ISO 27001:2022 implementation

Implementing ISO 27001:2022 involves 93 specific security measures, which are now organised into four key themes following the restructuring of the Standard. This replaces the 14 clauses of the ISO 27001:2013 Standard.

ISO 27001 implementation is seamless with support from our expert consultants. You will establish robust procedures to prevent data security breaches and data theft. Backed up by our independent assessment and verification process, ISO 27001 demonstrates to customers and stakeholders that you take their privacy seriously. And what does that mean for your business? It means helping you to develop trust signals, increasing the safety reputation of your business and meeting compliance requirements.

How can we help?

Our initial audit

Every business stores data in different ways. As a result, no two organisations’ security risks are the same. This poses unique security challenges.

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 will also identify any unique risks to your company’s information security.

We will then work with you to create a bespoke ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) that meets your specific needs. Our team of experienced consultants can help you deliver an effective ISMS in less than 30 days. We will then support you through the regular reviews and follow-up audits.

The ongoing 3-stage process

  1. Informal review of your ISMS, which includes checking the existence and completeness of key documents such as your:
    1. Organisation’s security policy
    2. Risk Treatment Plan (RTP)
    3. 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.
