ISO 27001 Certification

What is ISO 27001 certification?

Increasing pressure from regulators, clients and the public for better assurances about the way in which organisations manage confidential and sensitive data has resulted in rapid growth of certification to ISO 27001.

ISO 27001 is the international standard that lays out the specifications for implementing an ISMS (information security management system). An ISMS can be audited by an independent CB (certification body) as a way to assess whether it conforms to the requirements of the Standard.

How long does ISO 27001 certification last?

Once certification is granted it is valid for three years, although the ISMS will need to be managed and maintained throughout that period. Auditors from the CB will continue to conduct surveillance visits every year while the certification is valid.

“Having IT Governance on hand to guide our swift adoption of the ISO 27001 standard and provide ongoing expert support has been invaluable. They really understood the needs of a technology enterprise like ours.” 

- Paul Green, Wirefast

“I would have no hesitation in recommending IT Governance to others. The main advantage was their flexibility. IT Governance tailored their services, (whether it be training or consultancy) to our specific needs.”

- Paul Berry, Senior Project Manager, Martin Dawes Solutions

“We benefited hugely from IT Governance’s advice, and they effectively mapped out the route we needed to follow. If I were faced with doing the project all over again, the first thing I would do is get an expert consultant in to make sure we were tackling things in the right way. IT Governance really know their stuff and immediately impressed us with their calm and reassuring approach.”

- Carol McCarthy, Head of Business Control, dsicmm

“On behalf of myself and colleagues, a sincere thank you for all your input helping us achieve certification to the ISO 27001 standard. Here we are, just 6 months after we started the project and the outcome has been described by the auditor as ‘a delight to audit’. Much of this has been down to the mentoring and coaching style IT Governance has used to steer us to our goal.”
