ISO 27001:2022

ISO/IEC 27001 is the world’s best-known standard for information security management systems (ISMS). It defines requirements an ISMS must meet..

The ISO/IEC 27001 standard provides companies of any size and from all sectors of activity with guidance for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system.

Conformity with ISO/IEC 27001 means that an organization or business has put in place a system to manage risks related to the security of data owned or handled by the company, and that this system respects all the best practices and principles enshrined in this International Standard.

Who needs ISO 27001?

Nowadays, data theft, cybercrime and liability for privacy leaks are risks that all organizations need to factor in. Any business needs to think strategically about its information security needs, and how they relate to its own objectives, processes, size and structure. The ISO/IEC 27001 standard enables organizations to establish an information security management system and apply a risk management process that is adapted to their size and needs, and scale it as necessary as these factors evolve.

While information technology (IT) is the industry with the largest number of ISO/IEC 27001- certified enterprises (almost a fifth of all valid certificates to ISO/IEC 27001 as per the ISO Survey 2021), the benefits of this standard have convinced companies across all economic sectors (all kinds of services and manufacturing as well as the primary sector; private, public and non-profit organizations).

Companies that adopt the holistic approach described in ISO/IEC 27001 will make sure information security is built into organizational processes, information systems and management controls. They gain efficiency and often emerge as leaders within their industries.

What are the three principles of information security in ISO 27001, also know as the CIA  triad?

  1. Confidentiality
    Meaning: Only the right people can access the information held by the organization.
    Risk example: Criminals get hold of your clients’ login details and sell them on the Darknet.
  2. Information integrity
    Meaning: Data that the organization uses to pursue its business or keeps safe for others is reliably stored and not erased or damaged.
    Risk example: A staff member accidentally deletes a row in a file during processing.
  3. Availability of data:
    Meaning: The organization and its clients can access the information whenever it is necessary so that business purposes and customer expectations are satisfied.
    Risk example: Your enterprise database goes offline because of server problems and insufficient backup.

An information security management system that meets the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001 preserves the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information by applying a risk management process and gives confidence to interested parties that risks are adequately managed.


The audit Process

At CVI Certification we believe that the audit process should be about good communication between the client, Auditee, and the auditor.

Our approach to registration ensures that the auditor is at your facility for all of the important stages of the audit process.

Stage 1 allows the auditor to understand your business and your hazards, and to provide context when completing the audit of your system.

Stage 2 allows the auditor (armed with knowledge of your business, its hazards (from the Stage-1 audit) to establish the effectiveness of your system in meeting ISMS requirements.

CVI Certification Certificate Issue is amongst the fastest in the registration industry; clients normally receive their ISO certificates within a week of successful completion of the Stage-2 audit.
