ISO 27001 - An Overview
At Qualysec, we recognize the vital importance of conducting regular penetration testing to safeguard your Information Security Management System (ISMS) and comply with ISO/IEC 27001 requirements.

ISO 27001 Requirements
Systematic Risk Evaluation
At Qualysec, we believe in adhering to ISO/IEC 27001 requirements to enhance your organization’s security posture. This involves systematically evaluating information security risks by identifying threats and vulnerabilities and assessing their potential impacts.
Comprehensive Security Controls
We believe that a comprehensive suite of security controls should be designed and implemented to address the identified risks. These controls must be periodically reviewed and improved to ensure that they remain effective and aligned with changing risk landscapes.
Ongoing Management Process
Finally, we understand that an ongoing management process must be adopted to ensure that your security controls meet your organization’s information security needs as risks evolve over time. Our cyber security experts can assist you in achieving and maintaining compliance with ISO/IEC 27001 requirements through our comprehensive suite of services.
ISO 27001 Certification Process
To attain ISO 27001 certification, an organization’s Information Security Management System (ISMS) must undergo a rigorous assessment by an accredited registrar. The certification process comprises a three-stage external audit process defined by ISO 27006. This comprehensive evaluation typically includes the following stages
As a leading cyber security company, Qualysec understands the ISO 27001 certification process and can assist organizations to achieve and maintain compliance. The process comprises two key stages.
In Stage 1, a preliminary assessment of the organization’s ISMS is conducted, including the gathering of security policy documentation. The Statement of Applicability (SoA) and Risk Treatment Plan (RTP) are two crucial documents that must be collated.
In Stage 2, a formal compliance audit is conducted to test the ISMS against ISO 27001 requirements. Organizations undergoing assessment must demonstrate that they have documented evidence of their ISMS’s design, implementation, and active operation and maintenance.
Organizations that pass Stage 2 are granted ISO 27001 certification. However, they must undergo periodic follow-up reviews and audits to confirm ongoing compliance. This typically takes place more frequently during the ISMS’s initial phase, and we recommend annual reviews to ensure continued compliance.
ISO 27001 Annex A Controls
Establishing an Effective ISMS: Selecting Appropriate Controls
To establish a robust and effective Information Security Management System (ISMS), selecting appropriate controls is essential. ISO 27001 Annex A offers a set of 114 recommended ISO controls, divided across 14 clauses. While these controls have not been mandatory since the 2013 update, they provide guidance for risk assessments, allowing organizations to identify and select the controls that are most relevant and meaningful for their specific requirements.
By implementing these controls, organizations can establish an effective ISMS that addresses their unique security risks and requirements. These controls provide a framework for developing and implementing information security policies and procedures, managing assets, controlling access, and ensuring the availability, confidentiality, and integrity of information.
