ISO 27001 certification

Reliable information security with ISO 27001

Outdated technology, misusing IT or malware infections. These can all lead to cybercrime, IT failures, espionage and data misuse. How should you implement a strong information security strategy? ISO 27001 certification gives you this opportunity, letting you protect confidential information in your organization. DEKRA can is happy to test your organization against the international ISO/IEC 27001 standards.

The ISO 27001 certificate is for every organization wanting to demonstrate that it handles confidential information securely, with integrity and reliability. An ISO 27001 certification lets you meet the expectations of clients and stakeholders. Do you operate in accordance with this standard? That means you are taking account of all the relevant information security risks. You are implementing technical and organizational measures to manage confidential data securely. Efficient and reliable cooperation between technical solutions and organizational processes is necessary. Only then will you achieve the level of security that meets the requirements of modern standards.

The certification process

The ISO 27001 audit comprises two phases. In the first, DEKRA checks the ISMS documentation and we determine whether your organization is ready for phase 2 of the certification.

Phase 1

The ISO 27001 certification process also includes a preparatory phase, which occurs before the actual audit​. The phase has nine steps:
1. Determine the scope of information security for your management system (ISMS).
2. Determine the information security objectives.
3. Develop a methodology for risk assessment and risk treatment.
4. Establish a statement of applicability (SoA).
5. Draw up a risk management plan and risk assessment report.
6. Establish security roles and responsibilities.
7. Draw up a resource list for technical measures.
8. Ensure acceptable use of resources.
9. Establish guidelines, for example for access control in accordance with Annex A of ISO 27001.

Phase 2

We assess the effectiveness of the ISMS in the second phase. Our auditors record the findings of the audit in a report. If the results are positive, you will receive the ISO 27001 certificate for a period of up to three years. We conduct a first follow-up audit within a year of the first one, then conduct the second one the following year. After three years recertification follows, with annual follow-up audits.
