What is an ISO 27001 Certification?

Put simply, ISO 27001 is the most widely adopted security standard in the world.

An ISO 27001 certification covers known security issues, containing many well-considered control requirements and steers companies along a quantifiable path of assessments and improvements. Compliance shows that information security is being taken seriously and that effective steps are in place.

An Information Security Management System (ISMS) is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information, ensuring it remains secure and available. It encompasses people, processes and IT systems.

ISO 27001 Identifies 10 Controls

ISO 27001 identifies ten controls. Our consultants can help you to understand each of these and how they work towards your certification.

  1. Security policy – This provides management direction and support for the Information Security Organisation of Assets and Resources, which helps you manage information security within the organisation.
  2. Asset classification and control – This is to help you identify your assets and appropriately protect them where required.
  3. Personnel security – To reduce the risks of human error, theft, fraud or misuse of facilities.
  4. Physical and environmental security – To prevent unauthorised access, damage and interference to business premises and information
  5. Communications and operations management – To ensure the correct and secure operation of information processing facilities
  6. Access control – To control access to information
  7. Systems development and maintenance – To ensure that security is built into information systems
  8. Business continuity management – To counteract interruptions to business activities and to protect critical business processes from the effects of major failures or disasters.
  9. Compliance – To avoid breaches of any criminal and civil law, statutory, regulatory or contractual obligations, and any security requirement

What are the Benefits of ISO 27001?

  • Credibility, trust and confidence – your customers can feel confident of your commitment to keeping their information safe.
  • Cost Savings – the cost of a single information security breach can be significant. Registration reduces the risk of such cost being incurred and this is important to stakeholders and other investors in your business.
  • Compliance – registration helps to show the authorities that you comply with the relevant laws and regulations.
  • Commitment – registration helps to ensure and demonstrate commitment at all levels of the organisation.

How Can ISO 27001 Certification Help Win More Tenders?

In a variety of industries, ISO 27001 certification is now a very common demand during the PQQ (Pre-Qualifying Questionnaire) stage of the tendering process.

It can be challenging to successfully structure, format, and communicate in your tendering application document how your company manages its Information security measures.

Using our ISO Consultancy Service to achieve your ISO 27001 Certification means your business will now have a well-documented management system that has been implemented and executed. Having these policies and procedures in place now means that the majority of the responses to tendering questions will be easily accessible.

What our clients have to say

We engaged Blackmores to develop our ISO 9001, 14001, and 45001 management system from scratch. Throughout the creation and development stages of our ISO journey, Anju Punetha demonstrated remarkable patience, knowledge, and understanding as our dedicated consultant.

During our internal audit preparations, Ian Battersby’s meticulous attention to detail and thorough approach ensured we were well-prepared for our external audit, which we passed with flying colours. His guidance during the external audit was invaluable.

Based on our engagement and experience, I highly recommend the entire Blackmores team. If you’re considering pursuing ISO accreditations, Blackmores should be your first choice.
