ISO 27001 Certification Program

What is ISO 27001?

Security controls are often implemented as a response to specific project or mandated compliance needs. Because of this, most organizations lack a coordinated and inclusive security program. ISO 27001 is a set of standards for an information security management system (ISMS) that provides the comprehension and organization that most companies need. ISO 27001 is the most globally recognized set of security standards, and the only widely-recognized standard with an official certification process.

The NuHarbor Process

Our ISO 27001 certifications cover the development and implementation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS).  As part of our certification process, we look to ensure that our customers adhere to the process, structure, and methodology of ISO 27001:2013.  Each ISO 27001 certified security ISMS is a little different, but artifacts required as part of the certification are:

 

Certification Requirement

Summary Description

1. Proof of Management Commitment

This can be demonstrated through records of management decisions and approval of business case.

Documentation of the ISMS Scope and ISMS Policy

ISO 27001 requires that a Statement of Applicability and Risk Treatment plans are completed as foundation step in defining the ISMS.

6. ISMS Implementation Plan

For the applicable security controls to be implemented a roadmap and implementation plan should be in place.

7. Program Implementation

Evidence that controls are being implemented which includes evidence of audits to identify non-conformities, corrective action plans, metrics, etc.

8. Evidence of Management Review

Inclusion of decisions related to continual improvement opportunities and any needs for changes to the ISMS.

9. Review of ISMS operational artifacts

Review of Security Logs, IS Policies, Audit Reports, Awareness/Training, etc.

Your ISO 27001 Certificate remains valid for three years,
after which your organization must be reassesed and recertified.

The certification and maintenance process can be summarized in the following steps:

  1. NuHarbor will work with your company to determine the scope of the systems subject to the ISO Assessment, review your existing security program, identify potential gaps, offer solutions, and create an individualized roadmap in preparation of the assessment. We are always available for support as you work through this process.
  2. Once you have successfully implemented all the steps laid out in your roadmap, NuHarbor will perform the ISO 27001 Assessment and provide your certificate of compliance if standards have been met.
  3. In the two years following your certification, NuHarbor will conduct annual compliance reviews to ensure your ISMS and related security controls remain in place. Near the end of your third year, will again perform a full ISO 27001 assessment to begin the next three-year certification cycle.
