To achieve certification against your systems, we need to verify that the documented requirements of the standard are implemented across the business. We visit your offices and premises as well as partake in discussions with relevant people in your business.

ISO IEC 27001:2013 is the latest version of ISO 27001, replacing ISO/IEC 27001:2005. The standard was updated in 2013 to meet the requirements of today’s rapidly growing information security risks. It provides a framework to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information by applying risk management processes.

It is an emerging standard, as information risks and threats become more prevalent.

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is the most internationally recognized Information Security Management System (ISMS). It is an international standard and is the same standard as ISO/IEC AS/NZS 27001:2015. The difference is only the time at which the standard was released in Australia, compared to the rest of the world.ISO 27001 belongs to the ISO 27000 ‘family’ of standards for quality, known as the ‘ISMS Family of Standards’.

Information Security Management Standards provide the frameworks to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the organization’s information.

Once you are ISO 27001 certified, your certification expires three years after your certification has been approved. To continue to be ISO 27001 certified you will need regular audits to maintain your certification and keep it valid, known as surveillance audits.
