ISO 27001 is an international standard on how to manage information security. The aim of ISO 27001 is to manage information risks, such as cyber-attacks, criminal hacks, data leaks and thefts.
The standard includes a list of essential requirements for building and implementing an Information Security Management System, also known as an 'ISMS'.
Our experts at Critical Path provide a wide range of services, from off-the-shelf "tool kits" to fully bespoke management system builds (ISMS) and consultancy.
We focus on getting it right and ensuring all our clients understand the value of their data and information and the potential impact a data breach or cyber-attack could have on their organisation.
Deciding which ISO standards will benefit your organisation can be difficult and time-consuming. Our team are here to assist you through the process from start to finish. We recommend scheduling an introductory call with one of our advisors to understand your business requirements better.
Should you choose Critical Path to help you achieve and manage ISO, you will be assigned a designated ISO consultant to arrange a gap analysis onsite at your offices. The gap analysis includes a full review of your current internal policies, processes, and procedures. Then, your consultant will work with you to 'fill in the gaps' and provide you with all documents required.
Your designated ISO consultant will prepare a bespoke action plan to work with you to redesign your internal processes and document changes; this is the start of your business’s journey to achieving ISO certification.
Upon completing the action plan, your consultant will work with you to prepare all documentation and processes to comply with the latest ISO standards. You will have nearly reached your goal of becoming an ISO certified business.
We will provide you with staff training and unlimited remote support. Over time, this will save your organisation time and money on employing an in-house dedicated ISO resource as Critical Path to manage everything for you.
Your ISO consultant will carry out an online or onsite pre-audit of your management system to prepare you for the official audit that a third-party auditing body must carry out. We have a track record of a 100% pass rate for both UKAS and non-UKAS audits, and we are partnered with the best auditing bodies to help arrange the audit for you and streamline the process.
ISO standards are not specific to any industry and, therefore, can be applied to organisations of any size and sector. Our highly experienced team have 15+ years of experience assisting clients in the following sectors: manufacturing, engineering, construction, healthcare, oil and gas, commercial cleaning, aerospace, utilities, railway and transport.
We have assisted 800+ clients in developing permanent control over their quality products, processes and improvement opportunities.
We carried out an onsite review of all operational areas of the site and conducted fire risk assessments across all three dealerships.
We were appointed by SebSpace to manage their Health & Safety requirements including an audit, recommendations and actions.
Our sales team arranged an onsite demonstration with SFG to show the features and functionality of the Oscar Compliance System.
We helped Noralis implement a quality management system and reach ISO 9001 compliance with the Oscar System.
Achieving ISO 27001 shows that your organisation focuses on security practices, resilience, and control. It also helps you to:
ISO 27001 was first published in 2005 to aid organisations in controlling their assets, such as the information trusted by third parties, financial information, information about its employees and intellectual property.
The standard was revised in 2013 and will be reviewed and updated to ISO 27001:2022 soon.
The focus of ISO 27001 is to help control, mitigate and continually improve upon an organisation's data, information, and asset risks. By implementing a robust risk treatment methodology, you will review and change the business's technological, physical, and behavioural aspects.
Critical Path has many years of experience working with organisations across numerous business sectors wishing to achieve ISO 27001 certification.
Our experts will work closely with your team to ensure all business areas are adequately reviewed for the assets, system and method used to create a robust and resilient set of controls.
We will ensure we fully understand your business practices and aim to make the process have as little impact as possible on the day-to-day activities yet ensure your ISMS is fit for purpose.
