ISO 27001 audits and gap assessments

Building an ISMS (information security management system) that meets the requirements of ISO 27001 can be a challenging project. However, an ISMS can help your organization comply with other laws and requirements such as DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement), the NIST CSF (Cybersecurity Framework), and the NYDFS Cybersecurity Regulations.

ISO 27001’s breadth of applicability can make it difficult for organizations to determine how to apply the Standard effectively and economically, so conducting an ISO 27001 gap analysis is an important starting point when putting a prioritized plan in place.

What is an ISO 27001 Gap Analysis?

An ISO 27001 gap analysis provides a high-level overview of what needs to be done to achieve certification and enables you to assess and compare your organization’s existing information security arrangements against the requirements of the Standard.

It is the ideal solution for organizations that need to measure their current state of compliance against ISO 27001 and enables you to scope your ISMS parameters across all business functions.

What is an internal audit?

Internal audits are a close examination of your management system to ensure it is meeting both your requirements and those of ISO 27001. It requires an independent auditor to look at your information security practices and compare them against defined requirements. Internal audits are mandatory for certified ISO 27001 information security management systems.

Because the auditor must have a strong understanding of information security and be independent of the processes they examine, many organizations find it difficult to appoint suitable auditors.

Outsource your internal audit

Remove the guesswork from your ISO 27001 audits with an experienced auditor on your side.

Implementing an ISO 27001-compliant ISMS requires ongoing maintenance and review to meet the Standard’s requirements. The internal audit is an essential element of this process. It must be carried out as described in Clause 9.2 of ISO 27001 and should be conducted at planned intervals.

Without the experience of a seasoned audit professional, the internal audit can be challenging, especially when the organization is new to ISO 27001.
