plus the software tools to get the job done well
Accelerating your implementation
‘Out-of-the-box’ you will have an online ISMS that includes a 77% head start with the requirements, policies, guidance and controls that you need for success.
Why not 100%?…
Every organisation is unique in some way and no off the shelf toolkit will meet all your needs, despite what some well-known vendors might suggest.
In fact, it is unlikely their ‘comprehensive’ toolkit will meet many of your needs when you come to actually implement it! Check out this article to learn more about ISO 27001 documentation toolkits.
Avoid the pitfalls
ISO 27001 is more than just a manual. To achieve a meaningful certification, you must be able to evidence that you have embedded the required working practices. You must also have an operational information security management system (ISMS). That doesn’t mean you need to spend large amounts of money with old fashioned information security vendors and out of date technology. However, it does mean you need more than a bunch of downloaded generic policy templates gathering dust in a shared folder somewhere.
Off-the-shelf ISO 27001:2013 document toolkits also generally need a large degree of customisation before they can be implemented in a way that allows you to run your business the way you want to. Depending on the quality of the tools, they can be hard work to use in practice. For example, to update and control in the required regular reviews.
Some organisations may even offer to prepare a manual for you and certify their own work – beware the differences between certification and compliance…it can be a costly mistake and one that offers little assurance to your powerful customers!
ISMS.online is so much more than a simple set of documents. It is a trusted ISO 27001 software solution with documentation that sits alongside practical approaches and the tools that will ensure you manage your ISMS without hindering ‘business-as-usual’.
