We needed ISO 27001 to win new corporate clients and we needed it quickly. As a small business with limited resources, we were looking for a one-stop solution to radically speed up our implementation. ISMS.online has done exactly that.
Evan Harris
Co-founder
We’ve made more ISO 27001 progress in the last 2 weeks using ISMS.online than we have in the past year. We looked at a few other solutions and none came anywhere near to delivering the pragmatic processes needed for the complete ISMS.
Tom Woolrych
The actual time invested in our ISMS implementation was probably only 2-3 weeks thanks to the massive head start the ISMS.online platform gave us. We didn’t have to rush anything and still had the day job to do as well, so the elapsed time was around 10 months from the start of the journey to UKAS certification award. We definitely would not have made it without the ISMS.online system.
Emmie Cooney
Operations Manager
While we had an understanding of the technical requirements of ISO 27001, it was ISMS.online that helped to bring it all alive quickly with structure and pre-built tools that enabled us to embed the ISMS across our international sites

FAQs

How do we achieve ISO 27001 certification?

First design, build and implement your ISMS, following the many requirements of the ISO 27001 standard. Then sign up with a recognised independent certification body. If you get through your stage one and two audits, then you’re ISO 27001 certified for the next three years (subject of course to your ongoing surveillance audits).

Where do we start?

Get to know the ISO 27001 standard. It’ll help you define your infosec strategy and plan your ISMS. Next build your ISMS, creating its systems and tactical controls. Then implement it and get ready for your audit.

How long will it take?

That depends on the size of your organisation, the kind of infosec challenges you face, any time or resource pressures and many other factors. With our help, it can take a few weeks or months rather than years. And we can always help you speed the process up.

What’s the audit process?

Your auditors will assess your ISMS documentation, sometimes on-site and sometimes remotely. Then they’ll test your ISMS, usually through on-site interviews and sampling. If you get through those and achieve certification, you’ll have at least two annual surveillance audits followed by recertification after three years.

What if we need extra help?

If you need on-site help with your infosec capacity, capability, confidence or development, we can draw on an infosec network we’ve spent years building to introduce you to the right people.

How do you compare with other approaches?

Our all-in-one solution avoids the cost, time and complexity of lead implementer courses, expensive consultants, gap analyses and document toolkits. You won’t have to juggle documents, spreadsheets and emails. And you can access your ISMS anytime, anywhere.

How do I explain an ISMS to my colleagues?

Our platform is full of ISMS information and guidance. It comes pre-loaded with the ISO 27001 framework, which will help them understand the standard. And our Assured Results Method will help you lead them through the ISMS design, build and implementation process.

How do I make sure everyone uses our ISMS?

Our platform makes it easy to share action requests, set up automated reminders and track individual and project progress. You’ll have full visibility of individual and team progress, and it’ll be easy to keep everyone moving in the right direction at the right speed.

What’s the difference between certification and accreditation?

Certification is what certification bodies do. They give a written assurance (basically, a certificate) that a particular product, service or system meets specific requirements. You’ll go to a certification body for your ISO 27001 certification. Accreditation is what accreditation bodies do. They formally and independently recognise that a certification body works according to international standards.
