ISO 27001 certification aligns organisations with the requirements for implementing, maintaining and continually improving an Information Security Management System (ISMS)
ISO 27001 certifications provide assurance that all potential security risks to data have been assessed and are being managed to minimise overall risk exposure.
For many organisations achieving ISO 27001 certification is a regulatory or contractual obligation, especially those who tender for NHS and government contracts. The goal of ISO 27001 certifications is to use security techniques to provide an information security management framework of standards for how a modern organisation should manage their confidential information and data in order to protect their intellectual property and information assets for online security threats.
ISO 27001 certifications work on a top-down, technology-neutral, risk management approach for the protection of Confidentiality, Data security, Integrity and Availability of information and to ensure a secure exchange of information assets for businesses. ISO 27001 certification draws coordination between all sections of an organisation and enhances management responsibility, conducts internal audits and undertakes corrective and preventive actions.
Evaluating and assessing risks to your data can help you put processes in place to suppress potential data breaches and get ISO 27001 certified.
Our team of experts perform risk assessments and a gap analysis to assess your organisation’s current information security management system, current security policies, processes and procedures.
This will highlight any areas where you need to improve to become an ISO 27001 certified organisation.
Step two of ISO 27001 certifications process consists of working with you to design and implement an Information security management system (ISMS) that is tailored to suit your organisation.
The ISMS will be developed in line with your organisation’s current policies and procedures and ensure you will become an ISO 27001 certified organisation.
Stage 1 audit assessment
We’ll conduct a stage 1 audit within your business with a UKAS certified auditor, to check that your internal documentation and processes are in line with the ISO 27001 certification standards and the Annex A controls.
Risk exposure and areas of improvement will be identified and detailed within our external audit report.
Our team will work with you to remediate the issues identified and prepare you for the ISO 27001 accreditation Stage 2 audits.
Stage 2 audit
Next, we’ll conduct a Stage 2 audit with a UKAS certification auditor body, which will test and evaluate your information security management system against the ISO 27001 certification standards.
This is an internal stage, completed by conducting interviews and sampling the documents, processes and procedures you have in place to provide assurance and verify compliance with the ISO 27001 accreditation standards.
Management and maintenance
We’ll support you to manage and maintain your information security management system in line with your ISO 27001 certification support service.
We will conduct a monthly internal audit against the ISO 27001 certification standard and controls, assist with the management of information security risks and incidents, and conduct a management review to ensure your information security management system is always audit ready and you remain ISO 27001 accredited.

ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised specification for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). A globally recognised standard for information security, ISO 27001 certification is acknowledged as a trusted standard within all industries.
The ISO 27001 standard is an internationally recognised standard for information security. ISO 27001 outlines requirements for any organisation to build, maintain and continually improve an Information Security Management System (ISMS).
So, what is ISO 27001 accreditation? The ISO 27001 framework of security controls is formed to protect information assets, analyse security risk effectively and outline all internal processes. This risk management process framework enables companies to be ISO 27001 certified.
In 2022, the ISO 27001:2022 standard, which covers the entire organisation, was released. There has been a reduction in controls, from 144 to 93. The controls have also now been organised into four categories – organisational controls, people controls, physical controls and technological controls.
The main ISO 27001 information security controls remain the same. This applies to clauses 4-10 which include: scope, interested parties, context, Information Security Policy, risk management, resources, training and awareness, communication, documentation control, monitoring and measurement, internal audit, management review, and corrective actions.
First, check that the certification has been issued by an accredited certification body. The International Accreditation Forum (IAF) maintains a list of members.
Contact the certification body and ask them to confirm whether the organisation in question is certified. In some situations, certification bodies do this through their website, while in others they’ll check that their client is happy to share this information with you first.
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard focusing on information security and the protection of Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of information and information assets for businesses.
ISO 27001 certification was developed to help organisations, of any size or any industry, to protect their information in a systematic and cost-effective way, through the adoption of an Information Security Management System (ISMS).
ISO 27001 certification standards provide a clear directive of processes that must be followed to keep data and sensitive information safe.
ISO 27001 implementation is a smart move for forward thinking, modern businesses seeking to demonstrate best practice information and data management. Risk management is a key factor of ISO 27001 certification which inevitably helps an organisation to protect itself from unwanted cyberattacks and loss of data.
ISO27001 accreditation was previously seen as a competitive edge. In many cases now ISO 27001 certification is obtained to adhere to regulatory requirements or contractual obligations.
Any organisation that works with the Government or organsiations in the healthcare sector, especially the NHS, is required to prove ISO 27001 certification has been achieved.
Achieving ISO 27001 certification has many benefits for organisations. Some of the benefits of ISO 27001 accreditation include: Competitive advantage when bidding for contract tenders, a more effective risk-based approach to cyber security, and an improved overall security posture to protect the business from cyberattacks.
The main benefits of ISO 27001 certification for any organisation is that they can prove to potential suppliers, partners and customers that they have implemented an ISMS against a stringent framework to protect their customers’ data and sensitive information.
Having an internationally recognised ISO 27001 certification, audited annually, demonstrates a commitment to protecting information security and will encourage customer trust in the business.
ISO 27001 accreditation benefits also include the demonstration of robust security practices, customer trust and retention, regulatory requirements compliance and the mitigation of the risk of security breaches.
Check if your organisation is ready to get ISO 27001 certified with this checklist.
The cost of any ISO 27001 certification will depend on the organisation size and what ISMS processes have already been implemented.
We recommend conducting an initial gap analysis if you want to understand what your current status is and how much time you need to become an ISO 27001 certified organisation before you undertake the full ISO 27001 certification process.
Organisations looking to become ISO 27001 certified need to build an Information Security Management System (ISMS) and conduct audits on against the 93 controls in four categories: organisational controls, people controls, physical controls and technological controls.
The ISO 27001 certification must be maintained in order to pass regular audits and renew the ISO 27001 certification each year.
Short answer: yes. To achieve ISO 27001 certification, an organisation needs to carry out a detailed risk assessment of their infrastructure and data management. A number of the most common risks fall into the territory of cyber security and good data management.
Cyber security and ISO 27001 go hand in hand in protecting customer data and key information. However, as with all robust cyber security provisions, ISO27001 certification forms part of a larger cyber security posture.
Cyberattacks are increasing at an alarming rate across the world. DCMS’s Cyber Breaches Survey found that only 39% of organisations in the UK had visibility of whether they had suffered a cyber security breach.
What is ISO 27001 certification going to improve for your organisation? Without ISO 27001 certification, it’s impossible to manage and maintain an effective ISMS. This puts your business, your employees, your customer data and most importantly your overall business reputation at risk.
The benefits of ISO 27001 certification in preparing policies and processes to manage information security effectively, put certified organisations ahead of the criminals.
ISO 27001 certification proves that the business employs the highest level of controls around information security and can limit any damage that a security breach might cause.
Keeping you a step ahead of cybercriminals is at the heart of what we do. DigitalXRAID’s fully managed ISO 27001 certification service will help you to secure your assets, shield you from attacks and make sure your data remains safe.
Trying to implement your own ISO 27001 information security management system is difficult without specialist knowledge and experience of the ISO 27001 certification standards and controls. Let DigitalXRAID take on the effort of the process for you.
