Here we understand the business and ISMS context. We schedule meetings with all the decision makers at various levels (geography, departments, branches) to understand the business processes in great detail.
It includes asset identification, risk assessment, and existing control identification. We map out existing and required security infrastructure of all business processes. We then determine the deviation from the necessary requirements and make action plans to fill the gaps.
In this phase we help implement a detailed list of compliance for the organisation. Every department, every team in the scope is provided with a list of security and access controls, communication channels, SOPs etc. We then conduct an efficiency check to determine the efficiency of the controls introduced.
This phase is also called as the ISO27001 Pre-Audit. Under this phase we securely check whether the controls implemented and the processes introduced are being followed in the organisation. The tests check the level of ISO 27001 implementation as well as its adaptation in the organisation.
Certification process is carried out by independent auditors, not by the implementers. We bring the auditor for the certification process. Thus, we take care of end to end process from scope determination to certification making the whole process easy for the client.
