IT Security

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001) is the international standard that describes best practice for an ISMS (information security management system). Achieving certification to ISO 27001 demonstrates that your company is following information security best practice, and provides an independent, expert verification that information security is managed in line with best practice and business objectives. ISO 27001 is supported by its code of practice for information security management, ISO/IEC 27002:2013.

We are ISO 27001 certified Information security practitioners and Certified Information Systems Auditors (CISA) along with other relevant certifications, skills and experience. The process to become compliant is as follows at a very high level:

  • Identify information assets
  • Create a Statement of Applicability
  • Create a risk register
  • Review and Apply risk mitigation’s
  • Conduct an internal audit
  • Update policies and procedures
