......will you be ready for transition?

The Information Security Management Standard ISO IEC 27001 has been updated and the deadline for compliance with the new criteria is September 2015, so now is good time to start reviewing and changing your management system. 

The ISO IEC 27001 standard has been adopted by over 17,000 companies.  Information Security is becoming ever more important in today’s working world and being able to demonstrate your customer data is safe and secure is paramount.

So what can you do to protect yourself?

The overall structure of ISO IEC 27001 has been amended to comply with the ISO Annex SL format (the intention is that all standards will comply with this format as and when they are re-issued).

The most significant changes are:

  • Context of the organisation – the organisation needs to determine the internal and external issues that will affect its Information Security Management System (ISMS) and implement plans to address them.
  • Leadership and management – there is now a much greater emphasis on senior management involvement, and information security needs to be embedded throughout the organisation’s processes.
  • Statement of Applicability – Annex A has been completely re-organised and has some new requirements.  The Statement of Applicability will need to be re-drafted accordingly.
  • Risk assessment – risk owners now need to be identified.
  • Communication – the organisation needs to determine what needs to be communicated, when, and to whom.
  • Measurement - there is now a greater emphasis on monitoring and measuring the performance of the ISMS and appropriate metrics need to be set.

If you currently operate an ISO IEC 27001:2005 system, you will need to amend your system in line with ISO IEC 27001:2013 prior to your next audit.
