How to Maintain ISO 27001 Standard Certification

ISO/IEC 27001 is the international standard for information security management. It outlines how to put in place an independently assessed and certified information security management system. An information security risk assessment is used to identify the security requirements of the organization, and to then identify the security controls needed to bring that risk within an acceptable level for the organization.

ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management standard helps to identify risks and put controls in place to manage or eliminate them. It provides flexibility to adapt controls to all or selected areas of your business, gain stakeholder and customer trust that their data is protected, demonstrate compliance and gain status as preferred supplier and meet more tender expectations by demonstrating compliance.

It's not enough to get successfully certified and then expect the organization to keep performing at a high level, using smart working practices. ISO/IEC 27001 is suitable for any organization, large or small, in any sector or part of the world. The standard is particularly suitable where the protection of information is critical, such as in the finance, health, public and IT sectors. The organization shall continually improve the effectiveness of the ISMS through the use of the information security policy, information security objectives, audit results, analysis of monitored events, corrective and preventive actions and management review. To maintain the ISMS the organization shall regularly do the following:

  • Implement the identified improvements in the ISMS.
  • Take appropriate corrective and preventive actions.
  • Communicate the actions and improvements to all interested parties with a level of detail appropriate to the circumstances and, as relevant, agree on how to proceed.
  • Ensure that the improvements achieve their intended objectives.

ISO/IEC 27001 is also highly effective for organizations which manage information on behalf of others, such as IT outsourcing companies: It can be used to assure customers that their information is being protected. ISO 27001 is a management standard, not a security standard. It provides a framework for the management of security within an organization.
