How do risk assessments fit in with your ISO 27001 project?

Many organizations choose to achieve accredited ISO 27001 certification as it demonstrates to existing and potential customers that they have defined and implemented best-practice information security processes.

ISO 27001 is also the only auditable international standard that defines the requirements of an ISMS (information security management system). An ISMS is a set of policies, procedures, processes, and systems that manage information risks, such as cyber attacks, hacks, data leaks, or theft.

An ISO 27001-compliant ISMS relies on regular risk assessments, so you will be able to identify and treat security threats according to your organization’s risk appetite and tolerance.

Risk assessments

Risk assessments are conducted across the whole organization. They cover all the risks to which information could be exposed, balanced against the likelihood of those risks materializing and their potential impact. Once the risk assessment has been conducted, the organization needs to decide how it will manage and mitigate those risks, based on allocated resources and budget.

Without an accurate risk assessment, you could waste time, effort, and resources trying to protect your organization against risks that are unlikely to occur or would have little impact.
