ISO 27001
Certification

ISO 27001 is a globally recognized international standard that establishes requirements for the implementation, maintenance, and continuous improvement of an information security management system (ISMS). ISO 27001 is auditable and has a certification process. Regardless of the industry in which you operate, this standard is universally recognized and serves as proof to your stakeholders that you have comprehensive cybersecurity practices.

BitSpartan Security is an ISO 27001 implementer and offers a range of advisory and cybersecurity services to get organizations ready for an ISO 27001 audit leading to certification. We plan, scope, roadmap, help implement, assess, and get you ready for certification. We are with you until you are ISO 27001 certified.

Our Process

1

Planning and Scoping

Understand the mission, purpose, and objective of the project, identify key stakeholders and resources, define priorities, establish a timeline, define the scope of the project, and establish expectations.

4

Operation and Validation

Allow the implementation to perform its intended purpose. Monitor, log, track, collect evidence, document, test the controls, perform another risk and gap assessment of the ISMS against the target state objective, and simulate audit activities.

2

Risk Assessment and Gap Analysis

Conduct a risk assessment to determine which controls are required, and a gap analysis to determine whether required controls exist. Identify the current state, define the desired state, and develop a roadmap and action plan based on the results of both assessments.

5

Certification

Engage an ISO 27001 auditor to audit the ISMS. There are two audit stages (design review and certification audit) which then conclude with official certification. BitSpartan can be on-site to support the audit.

3

Implemention

Implementation of required controls in accordance with the roadmap and action plan established in step 2. This includes taking clauses 4-10 into account, addressing gaps, developing policies and procedures, training employees, and activating the ISMS.

6

Maintenance

This is primarily step 4 with the addition of continuous improvement to the ISMS. Certification has a validity period of 3 years. Surveillance audits occur in years two and three, and re-certification (step 5) occurs prior to the end of the third year. 

Timeline

The following is a typical timeline for obtaining ISO 27001 certification. This information is provided to give you a sense of how long it might take on average. Numerous factors can cause it to be shorter or longer. Existing controls, the client's resources, the client's security culture, the complexity of the ISMS, the scope of the system, the budget, the client's goals, objectives, and requirements. Additionally, an organization may require the process to be expedited for a variety of reasons, requiring additional resources on both sides to reduce the time required to achieve certification. These are just a few examples of factors that affect the timeline.
