What is ISO 27001 Information Security Management System?
Company assets are physical values, human resources, reputation and corporate image, as well as information values. Organizations should preserve these information values. Thus, the information is not accessed or disclosed to unauthorized persons, units or processes.
The ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) standard covers all types of organizations (for example, commercial organizations, public institutions, non-profit organizations). This standard covers the requirements to establish, realize, monitor, review, maintain and improve a documented ISMS in the context of all commercial risks of the organization. It specifies the requirements for the realization of security controls customized according to the needs of independent organizations or parties.
Failure to achieve this can mean a loss of business, reputation and result in costly litigation (recent claims in the USA have resulted in 9 figure settlements).
ISO 27001 provides safeguards and controls to ensure that the integrity, confidentiality and availability of information are preserved. It provides the foundation for an Information Security Management System (ISMS) and applies to all sizes of organisation in all business sectors.
ISMS certification allows you to demonstrate to your customers, suppliers and governmental organisations that you are dedicated to information security.

Confidentiality: It is the prevention of access or disclosure of information to unauthorized persons, units or processes.
Integrity: The property of preserving the accuracy and integrity of assets
Availability: Availability is the use and access feature at the request of the authorized unit.

How to get ISO 27001?
Understand ISO 27001. Reading the standard provides a good background for ISO 27001 and its requirements.
- Determine context, scope and goals
It is very important to set the project and ISMS targets from the beginning, including the project costs and time frame. You will need to consider whether you are getting external support from a consulting firm or if you have the necessary expertise in-house. You may want to seek the assistance of a private consultant at critical stages of the project.
- Build a management framework
The governance framework describes the processes an organization must follow to meet ISO 27001 implementation objectives. These processes include accountability of the ISMS, an activity schedule and regular auditing to support the continuous improvement cycle.
- 4. Conduct risk analysis
ISO 27001, belirli bir risk değerlendirme metodolojisi belirlemese de, risk değerlendirmesinin resmi bir süreç olmasını gerektirir. Bu, sürecin planlanması ve verilerin, analizlerin ve sonuçların kaydedilmesi gerektiği anlamına gelir.
- Provide ISO 27001 Fundamental Training
The standard requires the initiation of personnel awareness programs to raise awareness of information security throughout the organization. This may require almost all employees to change the way they work, at least to some extent, such as following a clean desk policy and locking their computers when they leave their workstation.
- Examine and update required documents
- Registration / certification audits
During Stage One audit, the auditor will assess whether your documents meet the requirements of the ISO 27001 Standard and point out any non-compliance areas and potential improvement of the management system. Once the necessary changes have been made, your organization will be ready for your Stage two audit.
Certificate audit: During the Stage two audit, the auditor will perform a comprehensive assessment to determine whether you comply with the ISO 27001 standard.
