Whether it is to prepare your organization for an ISO certification, an audit, or simply to better implement the best practices defined by this standard, SecqureOne’s consultants will guide you through the necessary steps of the implementation.
Secqureone ISO 27001 Implementation
SecqureOne provides an ISO 27001 Compliance Service guiding clients through establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS) in accordance with this quality standard. We take a Plan-Do-Check-Act approach to ensure the highest standards are reached.
The objective is to analyze, remediate, and assess adherence to the ISO standard in a cost effective manner. An end-to-end compliance management solution helps identify vulnerabilities, define internal and external policies and manage changes and enforcement.
The support service process for the ISO 27001 standard compliance consists of: determining how information and the associated systems are being protected, assessing the processes and policies in place, and diagnosing the business situation with a maturity grid. The security audit is first performed on the existing documentation regarding the design and implementation of the information security management system.
Six Phase Process
Tactical and precise, the road to ISO compliance can be as simple as the following six – phase process:
SecqureOne provides assistance in the implementation of the ISO 27001 framework. With a team of experienced information security professionals who are also ISO 27001 certified Lead Implementers and Auditors, we have an in depth understanding of the standard. Our implementation strategy is based on a phased approach:
Phase 1: Gap Analysis – SecqureOne professionals will conduct an analysis of gaps in your current system against the requirements of ISO 27001 including a physical security review. The observations will be compiled into a report defining your level of compliance and will be used to consolidate the risk treatment plan for the compilation of the Control Implementation Strategy.
Phase 2: Risk Assessment – This is the most crucial phase of the implementation, wherein a asset register containing all the information assets of the organization is built. This involves meetings and discussions with the key stake holders of your organization. A comprehensive risk assessment is then conducted on the critical information assets, based on which appropriate controls to mitigate the identified risks are selected.
Phase 3: Risk Treatment – During this phase SecqureOne will formulate a strategy for the implementation of the controls selected in the previous phase. Also during this phase all the documentation pertaining to the ISMS will be developed. This will include the formulation of Information Security Policies & various procedures supporting the policies. The policies and procedures address the risks identified during the risk assessment phase.
Phase 4: Control Implementation – The implementation roadmap, which is the outcome of the previous phase will guide your organization’s team in the implementation of the identified controls. During this phase SecqureOne consultants will advise and guide the implementation team.
Phase 5: ISMS Readiness Review – This phase will review the readiness of the client to achieve ISO 27001 certification. SecqureOne will guide and prepare the client’s audit team to conduct internal audits. The audit results will be evaluated and gaps, if found will be closed by your implementation team with guidance from SecqureOne consultants.
Phase 6: Certification audit – Finally, you will face the certification body’s team of auditors. SecqureOne consultants will hand hold your team during the audit. We will assist you in the closure of any Non Conformities or observations noted by the external auditors and help you in achieving the ISO 27001 certification.
