Plan, build and certify your ISMS

StartupsCyberSecurity can help your organization establish an Information Security Management System (ISMS) that is relevant and appropriate to the size of your business, the value of the information assets and the level of risk and business impact. An ISMS is a mandatory requirement for protection from cyber threats. We have experience designing a practical ISMS based around the ISO 27001 standard and security controls based on the ISO27002 standard with required customization to suit.

Phase 1: Gap Analysis

StartUpsCyberSecurity professionals will conduct an analysis of gaps in your current system against the requirements of ISO 27001 including a physical security review. The observations will be compiled into a report defining your level of compliance and will be used to consolidate the risk treatment plan for the compilation of the Control Implementation Strategy.

Phase 2: Risk Assessment

This is the most crucial phase of the implementation, wherein an asset register containing all the information assets of the organization is built. This involves meetings and discussions with the key stake holders of your organization. A comprehensive risk assessment is then conducted on the critical information assets, based on which appropriate controls to mitigate the identified risks are selected.

Phase 3: Risk Treatment

During this phase StartUpsCyberSecurity will formulate a strategy for the implementation of the controls selected in the previous phase. Also during this phase all the documentation pertaining to the ISMS will be developed. This will include the formulation of Information Security Policies & various procedures supporting the policies. The policies and procedures address the risks identified during the risk assessment phase.

Phase 4: Control Implementation

The implementation roadmap, which is the outcome of the previous phase will guide your organization’s team in the implementation of the identified controls. During this phase StartUpsCyberSecurity consultants will advise and guide the implementation team.

Phase 5: ISMS Readiness Review

This phase will review the readiness of the client to achieve ISO 27001 certification. StartUpsCyberSecurity will guide and prepare the client’s audit team to conduct internal audits. The audit results will be evaluated and gaps, if found will be closed by your implementation team with guidance from StartUpsCyberSecurity consultants.

Phase 6: Certification audit

Finally, you will face the certification body’s team of auditors. StartUpsCyberSecurity consultants will hand hold your team during the audit. We will assist you in the closure of any Non Conformities or observations noted by the external auditors and help you in achieving the ISO 27001 certification.

We provide full end-to-end support and help, which enables organisations to obtain ISO27001:2013 Certification and have all the operational activities completed by us. A fully managed certification process is useful for companies who are looking to improve their security posture but do not necessarily want to recruit teams of people to start internal projects.

Kirksville Web Design was instrumental in bringing our internal design to life...Kyle was very easy to work with, in fact I still have calls with him to assist with more involved updates to our Google Site. He is extremely knowledgeable and did an amazing job of training our key internal administrators for the site.

The standard includes a set of controls that need to be implemented in order to align to the ISMS framework.
