An ISO 27001 information security management system is a systematic and proactive approach to effectively managing risks to an organisation's confidential information. Many organisations seek to adopt the ISO 27001 security best practices when faced with the challenges of managing information security risks. ISO 27001 has been designed to help organisations protect sensitive information from unauthorised access.
An ISO 27001 internal Audit is a process used to evaluate an organisation's compliance with the standard. The expert auditor examines your organisation's information security management system (ISMS) to determine whether it meets the compliance requirements.
An ISMS information security management system audit is typically split into two stages. Stage 1 audit looks more at the documentation and processes etc. Stage 2 ISO 27001 audit focuses on the actual implementation of the ISMS .
Essentially, our specialist cybersecurity consultants will help you de-mystify compliance requirements and assist you to understand and gain clarity on the grey areas of a particular standard, and how these relate and translate to your business operations.
A regular internal ISO 27001 audit is a valuable tool for organisations that want to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their sensitive information. It also helps you identify potential risks and vulnerabilities and implement appropriate controls to minimise them.
Some of the facets your Information Security Management System that the auditor looks at include:

"In order for BMJ to the right way forward we looked for a VCISO to advise us on the right way to do things and give us expertise. We went to Cyber Management Alliance and it's been about a year now and we ran workshops, looked at our response to incidents, created the incident response plan and we are in a position now where we understand our way forward. Our VCISO keeps us on our toes and overall it's been a very effective way of delivering expertise into the organisation that we wouldn't have normally had."
